San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk and a pair of runs scored to propel the Giants to an 8-3 win over the Brewers on Sunday. Belt walloped a go-ahead solo homer to right field off Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin in the fifth inning. It was his first long ball since June 27, a span of 12 games. He also singled in the seventh and walked in the eighth. The 31-year-old veteran has settled nicely into the leadoff spot for the Giants in recent weeks, which should help his counting stats moving forward. He's hitting .240/.364/.424 with 51 runs scored, 11 home runs, 34 RBI and three stolen bases in 349 plate appearances this season.

Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin

Ryan McMahon went 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored as the Rockies outlasted the Reds 10-9 on Sunday. McMahon had three of the Rockies' 14 hits and plated three of their 10 runs with a two-run double in the first inning and a run-scoring triple in the fifth. He also singled in the game, falling a homer short of the cycle. The 24-year-old has emerged from the competition and moved into a basically everyday role in the Rockies' infield, hitting .264/.336/.412 with seven homers and two steals in 74 games. Despite not producing big numbers to this point, a starting job and a spot in the middle of the Rockies' lineup is a sweet gig and makes him worth owning in most mixed leagues.
