Los Angeles Dodgers DFS Notes

Justin Turner went 1-for-3 with two runs scored and a walk in Saturday's victory over the Giants. Turner exhibited his typical patience in the top of the first with a five-pitch walk against Jay Jackson, and he ended up coming around to score on an AJ Pollock double. Then, in the top of the sixth, he scored on a balk by José Quintana. The veteran infielder is having another fine season at age-36, slashing .282/.372/.466 over 444 at-bats with 21 home runs and two stolen bases.

San Francisco Giants DFS Notes

Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Dodgers. With Kris Bryant on third and Evan Longoria on first in the bottom of the first, Posey smacked a double to right field off of Julio Urias, which scored Bryant and got the Giants on the board. He then reached base via a single in both of his at-bats in bottom of the fourth and bottom of the sixth. With tonight's effort, he's once again batting over .300 on the season. Over 319 at-bats, the former MVP is slashing .304/.395/.502 with 16 home runs, 57 runs, and 43 RBI.
