Milwaukee Brewers DFS SPIN

Devin Williams allowed an unearned run over one inning of work Wednesday but earned his third save of the season during the Brewers' win over the Cardinals in extra innings. Williams entered the game with a 6-3 lead in the bottom of the tenth inning and immediately surrendered a run on an RBI single from Yadier Molina. The 26-year-old was able to quickly shake it off and get the next three batters, two by strikeout. Josh Hader handled the ninth inning and got the win which gave Williams the save opportunity in extras. The Brewers right-hander now carries a 2.23 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 44 1/3 innings this season with 70 punchouts.
