For the second consecutive day, pitchers dominate the top 10.
The best performance of the bunch goes to the Red Sox’s Josh Beckett, who struck out eight and didn’t allow an earned run in seven innings.
Beckett, who has a 3.86 ERA this season, walked one and allowed just four hits in a game that was suspended in the ninth inning due to rain.
The nine other most notable fantasy performances from Friday:
Chris Carpenter — Struck out 10 in seven innings. Carpenter allowed an unearned run and four hits while walking three.
Andre Ethier — Coupled a pair of homers with five RBIs and a walk. He scored twice and went 2-for-4. Since returning full-time from his injury, Ethier is 9-for-21 with 3 homers and 9 RBI.
CC Sabathia — Went six innings in a rain-shortened complete game. He struck out five and allowed one earned run to improve to 2-0.
Jered Weaver — Struck out eight in seven innings. He allowed two runs, both earned and five hits.
Felipe Lopez — Went 2-for-3 with a homer, four RBI, a double and a walk. Lopez is hitting .280.
Kevin Millwood — He has been better than I anticipated. Millwood struck out nine batters in six innings, allowing nine hits and three earned runs while walking none. He’s got a 2.89 ERA and looks like he’ll be a decent fantasy factor this season.
Felix Hernandez — Struck out nine in 6.2 innings. Fernandez allowed two earned runs and walked two. One of the best pitchers in the game today, King Felix has a 3.10 ERA.
Orlando Hudson — Twos across the board for Hudson — two hits, two runs, two RBI and two walks. He’s hitting just .255. He’s better than that.
Roy Halladay — Not as dominant as he has been this season, but Halladay still got his third win. He only struck out four, but scattered eight hits and two earned runs over eight innings and didn’t walk a batter. Injury could be the only thing that keeps him from the first 20-win season of his career.
