Houston Astros DFS SPIN
Yordan Alvarez went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer on Tuesday night, propelling the Astros to an 8-6 victory over the Mariners. Alvarez connected on a 90 mph cutter from righty Chris Flexen, launching a majestic 423-foot blast to right field in the opening frame. It was his 19th round-tripper this season. He also singled twice to record his 27th multi-hit effort in 86 games. He's hitting .288/.355/.523 with 60 runs scored, 19 homers, 67 RBI and one stolen base across 361 plate appearances.
Seattle Mariners DFS Spin
Jarred Kelenic hit a two-run single on Tuesday in the Mariners' loss to the Astros. Kelenic has looked overmatched in his first exposure to major-league pitching, but delivered a two-run single to shallow left-center field off righty Lance McCullers Jr. in the sixth inning of this one. He also singled and scored a run in the ninth inning as well. The future is extremely bright for the precocious 22-year-old outfielder, but he's not quite ready to contribute for fantasy managers at the moment.
Astros vs. Mariners Betting Prediction
The Astros are 45-18 in their last 63 games versus the Mariners and are 23-9 in their last 32 games in Seattle.

On the other side, the Mariners are just 21-45 in their last 66 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
