Oakland A’s DFS Spin
Matt Olson went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base on Saturday in the Athletics' loss to the Yankees. Olson stuffed the stat sheet with an epic performance, but it simply wasn't enough to keep the Athletics' win streak alive. The 27-year-old first baseman notched his sixth three-hit effort of the year and also picked up his first stolen base of the season in this one.
New York Yankees DFS Spin
Gary Sánchez slugged a solo homer on Saturday, as the Yankees snapped the Athletics seven-game winning streak with a 7-5 comeback victory at Yankee Stadium. Sánchez walloped a no-doubter to left field -- his 11th round-tripper of the season -- off righty Chris Bassitt in the sixth inning. The 28-year-old backstop has been on an absolute tear at the dish recently, hitting .291 (15-for-51) with five home runs and 10 RBI across 14 games since June 1.
