Jonathan Broxton blew the save after allowing one run on one hit and one walk in the top of the ninth but backed into the win when Joey Votto hit a game-winning home run in the bottom half of the inning.
The irony of Broxton blowing what should be his final save opportunity is not lost on fantasy owners, especially those who own starter Johnny Cueto. With Aroldis Chapman due back this weekend, Broxton will head back into his eighth-inning set-up role. He still works if your league counts holds or does a 'saves plus holds' scoring though, so don't just dismiss him altogether.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
