Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Matt Olson launched a pair of solo home runs -- including a go-ahead shot in the eighth inning -- in Tuesday's win over the Phillies. After Kyle Schwarber tied things up with a solo jack in the bottom of the seventh, Olson put the Braves back ahead what turned out to be for good with a blast off of reliever Andrew Bellatti. He also hit the second of back-to-back bombs with Travis d'Arnaud in the first inning. It's the second two-homer game over the last week for Olson, who is now up to 12 dingers on the season.
Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Kyle Schwarber belted a game-tying homer in the seventh inning of the Phillies' loss to the Braves on Tuesday. Schwarber deposited Dylan Lee's first pitch of the seventh inning over the center field wall to knot things up. Unfortunately for the Phils, the comeback would end there as the Braves went back ahead for good the next frame. The home run was the 11th this month for Schwarber, who clubbed 16 homers last June in a historic month.
