Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin

Marcus Semien went 3-for-4 with a leadoff home run and a pair of runs scored to lead the Athletics to a 5-3 win over the Twins on Friday. Semien drilled a no-doubter to left field -- his 15th round-tripper of the season -- off Twins starter Jake Odorizzi to lead off the ballgame. He also walked in the second inning, doubled in the fifth and tripled in the ninth. The 28-year-old shortstop fell a single short of hitting for the cycle in this one. The Athletics have been on fire lately, winning six of their first seven contests, since the All-Star break and appear poised to make another improbable playoff push this season.

Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin

Marwin Gonzalez belted a two-run homer in the Twins' loss to the Athletics on Friday. Gonzalez took Athletics starter Chris Bassitt deep for a two-run shot in the third inning. It was his lone hit of the contest. He’s now up to 11 big flies of the season and has left the yard twice in 11 games this month. The versatile 30-year-old outfielder has rebounded from a brutal two-month stretch to open his Twins tenure and is hitting .300 (32-for-107) with six homers and 16 RBI in 28 games since June 1. He needs to be owned in all deeper fantasy formats.
