New York Yankees DFS SPIN

Giancarlo Stanton delivered a tie-breaking RBI single on Thursday in the Yankees' extra-inning loss to the Red Sox. Stanton dunked a go-ahead RBI single into left field off righty Adam Ottavino in the eighth inning, putting the Yankees ahead briefly in a low-scoring, rain-soaked affair at Fenway Park. The 31-year-old slugger has just four hits to go along with nine strikeouts across six games since the All-Star break.

Boston Red Sox DFS Spin

Enrique Hernández went 1-for-4 with three RBI on Thursday, leading the Red Sox to a 5-4 comeback victory over the Yankees in a 10-inning marathon at Fenway Park. Hernández scorched a game-tying two-run double off the Green Monster in left field against righty Chad Green with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Red Sox rallied from behind in the ninth and 10th innings to emerge victorious in a nearly four-hour marathon, which also included a 55-minute rain delay. The versatile 29-year-old has been tearing the cover off the ball, tallying seven hits, including three homers, and eight RBI across six games since the All-Star break.
