Michael Saunders had a monster night at the plate Friday, slugging three homers and knocking in eight runs as part of a 13-3 victory over the Orioles.
Saunders launched a three-run homer in the first inning, another three-run shot in the fourth, and added a two-run blast in the sixth. He had a chance for MLB’s first four-homer game since 2012 when he came up with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, but he grounded into a double play. Still, fantasy owners aren’t complaining. Saunders is the first player in MLB to amass at least three homers and eight RBI a game since teammate Edwin Encarnacion did it (three home runs, nine RBI) last August 29 against the Tigers. He’s now up to 15 homers and a .999 OPS on the year and continues to be one of baseball’s biggest surprises. Jun 17 - 10:20 PM
