Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Spin

Hanser Alberto (head/neck) singled twice and scored a run against the Nationals on Tuesday. Alberto exited Sunday's game after suffering a head contusion and a cervical neck strain as the result of a collision at second base, but he didn't miss any starts and showed no ill effects Tuesday. The infielder singled and scored the Orioles' first run in the first inning and later added a bunt single.

Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Trea Turner singled, tripled and stole a base Tuesday against the Orioles. The Nationals had just four hits and reached second base only four times all night, with Turner accounting for half of both of those totals. Turner now has a whopping 14 multi-hit games this month, raising his average from .283 to .302 in the process. He's also stolen a base in three straight contests.
