Fantasy Baseball Update – June 26

Here are today’s fantasy baseball highlights and injury new for June 26th.

TOP STORY: The Rivera’s flood Mets lineup with hits

The Rivera Brothers (no relation…I don’t think) of the New York Mets combined to go 4-10 with 2 runs scored and 3 RBIs on Sunday. Rene Rivera stole the show and outperformed his non-related younger brother, T.J., clubbing two home runs in his first two plate appearances of the game. T.J. was no slouch himself, reaching base twice with two singles. New York as a whole produced across the board. Seven batters had multi-hit games for the Metropolitans in its 8-2 triumph over the San Francisco Giants.
