Milwaukee Brewers DFS Notes

Kolten Wong reached base four times and drove in a run Tuesday as the Brewers beat the Cardinals. Wong was a sparkplug at the top of the lineup against his former team in this one. After being hit by an Adam Wainwright curveball to lead off the game, he drove in the game's first run in the second inning with an opposite-field bloop double. Wong added a ground rule double in his next trip to the plate before finishing his night off with a single. He's struggled in August, but Wong now has his OPS back up over .800 following the nice night.

St. Louis Cardinals DFS Notes

Harrison Bader went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Tuesday versus the Brewers. He wasn't alone, as the Cardinals managed just four singles in getting shut out. After a torrid July, Bader has come back to earth in August, batting just .189 with zero extra-base hits and a 36.2 percent strikeout rate in 14 games this month.
