Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin
Corey Dickerson belted a solo home run for the Phillies' lone run in Saturday's loss to the Giants. Dickerson's blast off of Jeff Samardzija in the first inning was a no-doubter to dead-center field. Unfortunately for the Phils, they had just two singles, one walk and no runs otherwise. Dickerson had a chance to come up big again with two on and two out in the ninth with Philly down by two, but he went down swinging. The home run was Dickerson's third in seven games with his new team.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Evan Longoria ripped a two-run home run Saturday in the Giants' win over the Phillies. Vince Velasquez hung a breaking ball to Longoria in the second inning and the third baseman took advantage in launching a no-doubter into the left field bleachers. It was one of two dingers the Giants hit, as Kevin Pillar also went deep. The bomb was Longoria's first in six games since returning from the injured list
