Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with a home run, four RBI, a run scored and a walk during the Angels' 6-5 win over the White Sox on Saturday.
Let the games begin. If ever there was a need for a big shot to jolt everyone back to reality, it was Trout's grand salami to win the game Saturday. Fantasy owners have continued to panic with regard to Trout's back problems and under-performance this season, but those who stayed the course and understood the ebb and flow of the tides here are likely to start reaping some massive benefits. With the back issues behind him and a nice flash of power, it looks as if he's gearing up to get back to the top of that mountain.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Mark Teixeira went 3-for-4 with a solo home run against the Mets on Saturday.
That’s Tex’s eighth home run of the year. He won’t continue to hit home runs at this rate, but it’s not unreasonable to think he can hit 25 or more this year. He has also drawn as many walks as he has strikeouts. And he’s hitting .254 despite a .163 BABIP. That’s mainly because most of the balls he’s hitting are leaving the yard right now, but it’s still encouraging for his batting average going forward. Analysis: Brett Talley
