New York Yankees DFS Notes
Ryan LaMarre delivered a pinch-hit, RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning on Wednesday, lifting the Yankees to a 6-5 walk-off victory over the Phillies. LaMarre came off the bench to lift a Ranger Suárez offering off the right-field wall to end the contest. The well-traveled 32-year-old outfielder has two hits in three at-bats for the Yankees over the last week. He's a really fantastic story, but doesn't carry any relevance for fantasy managers moving forward.
Boston Red Sox DFS Notes
Enrique Hernández went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk on Wednesday, powering the Red Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Blue Jays at Sahlen Field. Hernández kicked off the scoring with a line-drive two-run homer to left field against southpaw Robbie Ray in the third inning as the Red Sox ultimately blasted five homers in a high-scoring affair at Sahlen Field. The versatile 29-year-old jack-of-all-trades has left the yard in two consecutive games and gone deep three times during that span. He's up to 14 round-trippers on the season, with just over half of those (nine) coming in his last 25 games since June 20.
