Houston Astros Fantasy Spin
Alex Bregman hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Reds. Bregman caught up with a high, 96 mph fastball from Reds reliever Amir Garrett, turning it around for a two-run blast to left-center field in the eighth inning. The homer was his 20th of the year, the second time in as many seasons he's reached the 20-homer mark. He's on pace to best the 31-homer output he had in 2018 and is currently batting .265/.396/.537 with 50 RBI and 48 runs scored on the year.
Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin
Derek Dietrich hit a two-run home run to help the Reds edge the Astros 4-3 on Tuesday. Dietrich ripped an inside slider from Justin Verlander over the right field wall in the bottom of the first inning. The homer was his 18th of the year, extending what's already a career high in homers despite having yet to reach even the All-Star break. The 29-year-old, who might be fighting for his job with Scooter Gennett's return on the horizon, is hitting .235/.346/.605 in 66 games overall.
