Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin
JT Riddle slugged a solo homer on Saturday as the Marlins triumphed over the Phillies. Riddle opened the scoring in the contest with a solo shot off of Vince Velasquez in the third inning. It would be his only hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. It has been a struggled for him at the dish this season, slashing a cringe-inducing .193/.228/.375 with four homers and seven RBI.
Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin
Bryce Harper homered and drove in a pair of runs on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Phillies past the Marlins. Leadoff hitter extraordinaire, Harper and Rhys Hoskins blasted back-to-back solo homers off of Elieser Hernandez in the third inning, giving the Phillies a 2-1 lead. Harper extended that advantage with a run-scoring single in the fifth, but that would wind up being the extent of their offense in the ballgame. Harper finished the day 2-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .246/.360/.461 with 13 homers and 52 RBI on the year.
