Pittsburgh Pirates Fantasy Spin

Josh Bell went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored Friday against the Cardinals. Bell doubled and scored in the second inning before doing it again in the fourth inning. Fantasy owners have to be thrilled about the results after he was given three days off to reset following a brutal slump.

St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Marcell Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Pirates. It was part of a four-run eighth inning which gave the Cardinals some much-needed late-inning wiggle room. Ozuna is just 3-for-20 (.150) since returning from the injured list, but two of those hits are home runs. He’s now up at 22 home runs and 65 RBI through 85 games.
