Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Christian Yelich went 5-for-6 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored to lead the Brewers to a 15-14 victory over the Nationals in a 14-inning marathon affair on Saturday. Yelich kicked off the scoring with a two-run single in the third inning before clobbering a solo homer to left field off Nationals' closer Sean Doolittle in the ninth inning. He also swatted a go-ahead solo homer off reliever Javy Guerra in the 13th inning. It was his fifth multi-homer effort of the season and the second time he's accomplished the feat this month. The 27-year-old reigning National League MVP is now tied with Cody Bellinger and Mike Trout for the big-league lead with 41 home runs on the year. We've run out of superlatives and adjectives to describe his exploits at this point.
Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Adam Eaton went 4-for-8 with a three-run homer in the Nationals' loss to the Brewers in extra-innings on Saturday. Eaton crushed a three-run homer off Brewers' starter Jordan Lyles in the fourth inning. He also doubled twice in the extra-inning affair, which took nearly six hours to complete. The 30-year-old outfielder has now gone deep twice in his last three games.
