Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Rob Refsnyder belted a game-tying, two-run homer in the seventh inning of Tuesday’s loss to the Blue Jays. The home run was a no-doubt, 425-foot blast off of Trent Thornton. Refsnyder also plated a run with a groundout and added a single. The 31-year-old utility player has provided a nice boost to the Red Sox, although it remains to be seen what his role will be once Enrique Hernández (hip) returns.
Toronto Blue Jays DFS SPIN
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday to deliver a win over the Red Sox. The Red Sox were nursing a one-run lead going into the ninth and didn’t record an out, with Bo Bichette tying things up with a single and Vlad Jr. then ending it. Vlad also had a single earlier in the game as well as a walk. He’s sitting on 46 RBI.
