Christian Betancourt hits game-winning HR vs. Pirates

by Kyle Borgognoni | Athletics Correspondent | Sun, Jun 7th 3:24pm EDT

Betancourt's first major league HR in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Braves over the Pirates 5-4 Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact:

Bethancourt had a big night going 3-for-4 with 2 runs scored and two RBIs to go along with his game-winning HR. However, he still is hitting a meager .205 and should not be considered as a viable fantasy option at catcher. The Braves will give Bethancourt chances to prove he is their catcher of the future. Check in the second half of the season to see if Pierzynski still has some tread on the tires or if Betancourt gets hot.
