St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Matt Carpenter is on the Cardinals' bench for the second straight game Friday. Tommy Edman had a couple hits Wednesday while filling in for Carpenter at third base and in the leadoff spot, and he's back there again for this one. Worth noting is that the Padres are starting a lefty (Eric Lauer), as Carpenter will probably be back in there Saturday.

San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin

Eric Hosmer supplied three hits including his 12th round-tripper of 2019 Wednesday in the Padres’ 10-5 win over Baltimore. Hosmer’s homer—one of five on the day for San Diego—came on a two-out, two-run blast in the sixth off right-hander Shawn Armstrong. He finished the afternoon with a season-best four RBI, bringing his yearly total to 55. That leads the team and also ranks ninth in the National League.
