Jesse Winker went 2-for-3 with a run scored on Sunday as the Reds completed a four-game sweep of the Pirates with a 3-2 victory in the series finale at Great American Ball Park. Winker picked up right where he left off after a monster three-hit, six RBI effort on Friday evening, with two additional hits in the series finale. The Reds outscored the Pirates 37 to 14 over the four-game series. They've gone 13-9 since the All-Star break and are within two games of the Padres for the final NL Wild Card playoff spot. The 27-year-old burgeoning fantasy superstar has been on a tear since the Midsummer Classic, hitting .341 (30-for-88) with four homers and 17 RBI across 22 games since the All-Star break.

Ozzie Albies slugged a two-run homer on Sunday, propelling the Braves to a narrow 5-4 victory over the division-rival Nationals.

He also drew a leadoff walk in the sixth inning. The 24-year-old second baseman has been a consistent five-category impact contributor for fantasy managers, slashing .257/.321/.477 with 70 runs scored, 18 home runs, 72 RBI and 13 stolen bases across 477 plate appearances.
