Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin
Brian Anderson cranked a two-run home run Tuesday in the Marlins' win over the Cardinals. The Marlins were nursing a 1-0 lead in the seventh inning when Anderson yanked a Jack Flaherty offering down the left field line and over the wall. The Fish broke it open from there. Anderson had been homerless with just one RBI in his previous 11 contests.
St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Paul Goldschmidt was 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Tuesday versus the Marlins. Jordan Yamamoto made Goldschmidt look silly on a couple strikeouts and also got him to ground out. Goldy had a chance to redeem himself with the bases loaded in the eighth inning but popped up the first pitch he saw from Sergio Romo. The first baseman is in the midst of a 1-for-20 slump and is batting just .179 in June.
