Fowler also walked twice in the ballgame and finished 1-for-2. For the season he owns a .247 batting average with nine home runs and 30 RBI in 77 games.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a walk in the Giants’ win over the Padres on Wednesday. Belt reached base safely in four of his five plate appearances in this one. He delivered a clutch run-scoring double, plating Pablo Sandoval with a key insurance run, off Padres reliever Luis Perdomo in the Giants four-run rally in the sixth inning. He also singled twice to extend his hitting streak to five games and record his second consecutive three-hit effort during that span. The 31-year-old veteran first baseman owns a .242/.368/.430 triple-slash line with 45 runs scored, 10 home runs, 33 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 323 plate appearances.
