St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN
Nolan Arenado blasted a pair of homers and drove in three runs on Saturday, propelling the Cardinals to a 7-6 victory over the Phillies. Arenado belted a 354-foot two-run shot off of Kyle Gibson to get the Cardinals on the board in the opening inning. It would be the first of four consecutive homers off of Gibson as Nolan Gorman, Juan Yepez and Dylan Carlson each followed with solo blasts of their own. Arenado then led off the ninth inning with a go-ahead 365-foot blast off of Seranthony Dominguez to give the Cardinals a 7-6 edge. With his monster 2-for-4 effort, Arenado is now slashing a robust .291/.353/.543 with 17 homers and 55 RBI on the season.
Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Yairo Muñoz went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI on Saturday as the Phillies fell to the Cardinals. Muñoz smacked a game-tying two-run double off of Zack Thompson in the third inning that evened the score at five apiece. He has done a nice job in his limited action this season, slashing .250/.333/.583 with two homers, five RBI and a stolen base in 27 plate appearances.
