Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN

Austin Riley went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Sunday in the Braves' loss to the Brewers. Riley was responsible for the Braves' lone run of the low-scoring affair at Truist Park, slapping an RBI single up the middle off righty reliever John Curtiss in the sixth inning.

St. Louis Cardinals DFS Spin

Dylan Carlson went 3-for-5 with two doubles, one run scored, one RBI, and a stolen base in a 7-3 win against the Twins on Sunday. Carlson got on base immediately in the first inning with a base hit off of Michael Pineda. He then stole second for his first steal of the season. Carlson was expected to be more of a contributor on the base paths after stealing 20 bases in 2019 in the minor leagues, so it's a bit of a surprise that this was only his second career steal. The 22-year-old outfielder added two doubles on the day, driving in a run in the third inning. He's hitting .255/.337/.417 with 11 homers and 44 RBI over 439 plate appearances.
