Houston Astros DFS SPIN
Jeremy Peña went 2-for-5 with a run scored Wednesday in a Game 4 victory for the Astros over the Phillies in the World Series. Peña came around to score on a two-run double by Alex Bregman shortly after lashing a single in the fifth inning. The rookie Gold Glove winner at shortstop has been strong in his four Fall Classic games so far with a .294/.333/.412 slash line. He’ll of course be back in action on Thursday for Game 5 of the World Series with Justin Verlander taking the bump for the Astros and Noah Syndergaard on the hill for the Phillies.
Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Bryce Harper went hitless but drew a walk and stole a base in a loss Wednesday to the Astros in Game 4 of the World Series. Harper reached via free pass in the second inning and stole second base not long after. The 30-year-old struck out in his other two plate appearances as Philadelphia was no-hit by Cristian Javier and the Houston bullpen.
