Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin
Stephen Piscotty slugged a solo homer in the Athletics’ loss to the Giants on Tuesday. Piscotty walloped a no-doubter to left field off Giants ace Madison Bumgarner in the fifth inning. It was his lone hit in three at-bats. He was left standing in the on-base circle when Chad Pinder struck out to end the contest with the bases loaded and the Athletics trailing by a run in the top of the ninth inning. The 28-year-old outfielder has gone deep three times in his last five games.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Kevin Pillar went 2-for-4 with an RBI double to lead the Giants to a 3-2 victory over the Athletics on Tuesday. Pillar put the Giants ahead with an RBI double to left field off Athletics’ starter Brett Anderson in the sixth inning. He also singled in the second inning. The 30-year-old outfielder is capable of providing the occasional home run or steal, but his lackluster plate skills limit his fantasy appeal to deeper fantasy formats.
MLB Betting Trends
The A’s are 18-4 in their last 22 games following a loss.
The Giants are 0-4 in Tyler Beede’s last four starts.
With their loss last night at Oracle Park, the A’s are now 8-19 in their last 27 meetings with the Giants in San Francisco. Oakland has also dropped five of its last six games versus the National League West and is 1-5 in its last six road games when facing a right-handed starter. The Giants, meanwhile, have started to play well again after going through a mini slump. Winners of four of their last five games overall, the Giants are worth a flier as a small underdog against a struggling pitcher in A’s starter Homer Bailey.
The Pick: San Francisco Giants +105
