New York Yankees Fantasy Spin
Aaron Judge went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and a pair of RBI in the Yankees' win over the Dodgers on Friday. Judge hammered one of the Yankees' five homers in the blowout win. He took Dodgers' left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu deep to left-center field to kick off the scoring in the third inning. It was his 14th round-tripper of the season. He also plated an additional run with an RBI single in the eighth inning. The 27-year-old slugger owns a .270/.387/.474 triple-slash line with 51 runs scored, 14 home runs, 36 RBI and two steals in 324 plate appearances.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Enrique Hernandez went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in the Dodgers' lopsided defeat at the hands of the Yankees on Friday. Hernandez was one of the few bright spots for the Dodgers in this one. He doubled twice and drove in one of their two runs in the blowout loss. The versatile 28-year-old is 4-for-12 with two RBI in four games since coming off the injured list earlier this week.
