Houston Astros DFS Notes
Yuli Gurriel homered as part of a three-hit, three-RBI day on Wednesday in Seattle. Gurriel plated his first run of the game with an RBI double in the third inning before taking Yusei Kikuchi deep to lead off the fifth. He later put a cherry on top with an RBI single. The long ball broke a 37-game homerless drought for Gurriel, and his three RBI were his most in a contest since mid-May.
San Francisco Giants DFS Notes
Brandon Crawford sliced a two-run double on Thursday afternoon, propelling the Giants to a 5-0 victory over the Dodgers. Crawford made an immediate impact in his return to the Giants' starting lineup after missing exactly 10 days due to a mild left oblique strain, poking a two-run double down the left-field line off southpaw David Price in the opening frame. The 34-year-old shortstop has been a key component of the Giants' remarkable turnaround this season, hitting .286/.365/.547 with 49 runs scored, 18 homers, 60 RBI and seven stolen bases across 315 plate appearances.
