San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Evan Longoria went 4-for-5 with a pair of home runs and five RBI to power the Giants to a 10-4 blowout win over the Padres on Tuesday. Longoria took Padres lefty Matt Strahm deep twice in this one to record his first multi-homer effort of the season. He launched a towering solo shot to left field in the second inning and drilled a three-run tater in the fifth. He also tacked on an RBI double in the eighth inning for good measure. The 33-year-old remains a key component of a suddenly surging Giants’ offense, which has plated at least 10 runs in three consecutive games. He’s hitting .237/.314/.424 with 35 runs scored, 10 home runs, 34 RBI and a pair of stolen bases across 287 plate appearances.
San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin
Franmil Reyes went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in the Padres’ blowout loss to the Giants on Tuesday. Reyes obliterated a solo homer -- his 25th round-tripper of the season -- to right-center field off Giants starter Tyler Beede in the second inning. He also singled in the seventh. The 23-year-old slugger has struggled from an on-base perspective, posting a respectable .252/.303/.565 triple-slash line across 287 plate appearances, but he’s certainly delivered his trademark light-tower power.
