Houston Astros DFS SPIN

Jose Altuve went 4-for-4 with a double and a run scored Wednesday against the Red Sox. That makes 34 four-hit games for Altuve, which ties him with Craig Biggio for the most in franchise history. Altuve has never had a five-hit game, which is a little hard to believe.

Cleveland Guardians DFS SPIN

Amed Rosario had a three-run homer and a double as the Guardians topped the Diamondbacks 7-4 on Wednesday. Rosario crushed his homer today, hitting it 450 feet off Tommy Henry. It'd be nice if he could do that a bit more often, given that the power is clearly there. As is, he has just six homers in 427 plate appearances on the season. Still, his .293/.328/.414 line is pretty good.


The Astros are 9-2 in their last 11 games against the Guardians and 5-0 in their last five games in Cleveland. They’re also 5-0 in their last five road games versus a team with a winning record, are 13-4 in their last 17 road games versus a right-handed starter and are 50-22 in their last 72 games during game one of a series. The Astros have also won 19 of their last 28 road games, are 57-27 in their last 84 games overall and are 35-16 in their last 51 games versus a team with a winning record.
