Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks. Parra teed off on a Taylor Clarke delivery in the second inning, sending it deep to right for a two-run homer. The home run was his sixth of the year and his first since June 19. In 82 games between the Giants and Nationals this year, the 32-year-old is hitting .245/.307/.398.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Donovan Solano hit a pair of solo home runs in a loss to the Rockies on Sunday. Solano lined the second pitch of the game, an inside fastball from Kyle Freeland, into the first row of seats in left field. He then connected with a Freeland breaking ball in the third inning, launching it out to center for another solo homer. The dingers were the third and fourth of the year for the 31-year-old, marking a career high. The Giants have found something in Solano, who's hitting .343/.374/.496 in 49 games in 2019 after entering the year with a career .257/.306/.331 line, having last played in the majors in 2016.
