Cincinnati Reds DFS SPIN

Joey Votto drilled a three-run homer on Sunday in the Reds' loss to the Cardinals. Votto put the Reds ahead early with a mammoth three-run shot to right field -- his 14th big fly of the season -- off righty Johan Oviedo in the opening frame. He also drew a pair of walks in the high-scoring slugfest. The 37-year-old first baseman has homered in three of his last five games.

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a home run against the Diamondbacks on Sunday. Rizzo pulled an inside fastball from Caleb Smith 407 feet over the right-field wall in the first inning for his 12th homer of the season. He added a base hit in the seventh for his second hit of the day. Rizzo had been hitting just .215 in July coming into Sunday's contest thanks to a 2-for-18 skid over his last five games. The 31-year-old first baseman has a disappointing .244/.343/.431 triple-slash with 12 homers, 36 RBI, and four steals over 362 plate appearances.
