Los Angeles Angels DFS Notes
Shohei Ohtani went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and three RBI on Sunday, leading the Angels to a 6-4 victory over the Rays. Ohtani was a one-man wrecking crew at Tropicana Field on Sunday afternoon, smacking an RBI double to right field in the sixth inning, belting an RBI triple in the seventh inning, and also crushing a solo homer to left-center field -- his 25th round-tripper of the season -- in the ninth inning. The 26-year-old two-way sensation has been other-worldly in both departments, slashing .277/.363/.668 with 52 runs scored, 25 homers, 59 RBI and 11 stolen bases across 292 plate appearances. He trails Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. by one homer for the major-league lead this season. Unreal.
New York Yankees DFS Notes
Aaron Judge belted a two-run homer on Sunday in the Yankees' lopsided defeat at the hands of the Red Sox. Judge put the Yankees on the scoreboard with a two-run missile over the Green Monster in left field -- his 17th big fly of the season -- against lefty Eduardo Rodriguez in the sixth inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats in this one. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough as the Red Sox exploded for nine runs on 13 hits in a runaway victory to complete a three-game series sweep at Fenway Park.
