Huston Street picked up save number 10 on Monday as he pitched a perfect ninth striking out two as the Padres defeated the Giants 6-4.
Street is now a perfect 10-for-10 in save chances in 2014, trailing only Francisco Rodriguez (12 SV) for the league-lead in the category. He is now sitting on a 0.82 ERA and 0.73 WHIP through his first 11.0 innings of work having allowed only one earned run on six hits and two walks up to this point. Considering he has now pitched back-to-back days, there is a good chance the Padres will give Street the day off on Tuesday, so plan accordingly. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
