Washington Nationals DFS SPIN
Ryan Zimmerman belted a three-run homer and plated four runs on Sunday in the Nationals' loss to the Orioles. Zimmerman put the Nationals on the board with an RBI ground out in the opening frame and also walloped a go-ahead three-run homer in the sixth inning off lefty John Means. The 36-year-old veteran slugger has gotten off to a slow start at the plate, collecting just three hits in 21 at-bats over seven games since the All-Star break.
Philadelphia Phillies DFS Spin
Jean Segura swatted a solo homer on Sunday, powering the Phillies to a 2-1 victory over the Braves. There wasn't much offense to come by in this one, thanks to electric performances from Aaron Nola and Touki Toussaint, as Segura's fourth-inning solo shot wound up being the lone run scored over the first seven frames. The 31-year-old middle infielder has gone deep twice in 10 games to open the second half.
