St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam in the top of the 10th to lead the Cardinals to a 6-5 win over the Pirates on Monday. The Cardinals ended up needing all four of the runs, since the Pirates scored three times off Chasen Shreve and Carlos Martinez in the bottom of the 10th. Goldschmidt's homer was his lone hit of the night. He hasn't been able to bring up his average at all, but he does now have five homers and 17 RBI in his last 14 games.

Pittsburgh Pirates Fantasy Spin

In his second at-bat after coming off the bench, Jung Ho Kang hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th Monday against the Cardinals. It wasn't enough for the Pirates tonight, but it might help Kang's case for more playing time. He has four homers in 32 at-bats this month, but he's still batting .184 with a horrific .236 OBP overall.
