San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Brandon Belt hit his 12th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies. Belt pinch-hit for Tyler Austin in the top of the eighth inning and got the Giants on the board when he golfed a Nick Pivetta offering over the wall in right field. The run batted in was his first in his last 10 games, and it was also his first run scored in that span. The 31-year-old is hitting a disappointing .235/.352/.400 in 104 games overall this year.
Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin
Rhys Hoskins hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Giants. Giants starter Tyler Beede left one where you don't want to leave one to a hitter, much less one like Hoskins, and the first baseman launched it deep into the Philadelphia night. The homer was the 23rd of the year for Hoskins, giving him 68 RBI and 54 runs scored. The 26-year-old is hitting .260/.396/.525 in 105 games overall.
MLB Betting Trends
The Giants are a perfect 7-0 in their last seven games following a loss and have won 11 of their last 14 road games.
The Phillies have won five of their last seven games and are 4-1 in their last five games when facing a right-handed starter.
The Giants won four of six games last week but they didn’t hit well and generated only two runs last night despite taking their swings against Drew Smyly at Citizens Bank Park. With the trade deadline looming and decisions to be made, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Giants held onto players like Madison Bumgarner, only to watch their hot play start to fade. San Francisco is 3-7 in its last 10 games versus the Phillies and is winless in its last seven games played in Philadelphia. While the Phillies are 7-2 in Vincent Velasquez’s last nine home starts, the Giants are 3-15 in Jeff Samardizja’s last 18 starts versus the NL East.
