Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-3 and drove in the Braves lone run in Friday night's loss to the Phillies. Freeman plated Ozzie Albies with a single off of Zach Wheeler in the third inning to tie the game at 1-1. That would be the extent of their offense in the ballgame. Freeman also drew a walk and was caught stealing in the contest. For the season, the 31-year-old is now hitting a robust .290/.395/.515 with 22 homers, 56 RBI and six stolen bases.

Philadelphia Phillies DFS Spin

Bryce Harper went 2-for-3 with a run scored and three stolen bases on Friday as the Phillies triumphed over the Braves 5-1. Harper drew a walk in the opening inning and eventually swiped third base with two outs, but was left stranded there. After doubling in the third inning, Harper started the fifth with a leadoff walk. He then stole second base, advanced to third on a ground out and ultimately swiped home as part of a double steal. With the two-hit attack, he's now hitting .287/.387/.587 with 15 homers, 35 RBI and 11 stolen bases on the season.
