San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin
Eric Hosmer went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored in the Padres’ win over the Dodgers on Friday. Hosmer singled in the second inning, plated the tying run with an RBI single in the sixth and singled in the eighth. It’s largely flown under the radar, but the 29-year-old first baseman has cobbled together a solid rebound campaign after a brutal debut in San Diego last year. He’s hitting .286/.337/.444 with 55 runs scored, 15 home runs and 70 RBI in 460 plate appearances.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Cody Bellinger clobbered a two-run homer -- his 36th round-tripper of the season -- in the Dodgers’ loss to the Padres on Friday. Bellinger took Padres starter Eric Lauer deep to center field to put the Dodgers ahead by one run in the fourth inning. It was the 100th home run of his major-league career. He became the fastest Dodger in franchise history to reach the milestone. The 24-year-old slugger is now tied with Christian Yelich and Mike Trout atop the major-league home run leaderboard this season. He owns a surreal .330/.430/.681 triple-slash line with 89 runs scored, 85 RBI and nine stolen bases in 460 plate appearances
