Justin Upton doubles in Tigers' win

Justin Upton got the scoring started for the Tigers on Sunday with a RBI double in the first inning off Blue Jays' starter Marco Estrada. The double in the first turned out to be Upton's lone hit in five at-bats during the Tigers 6-5 extra-inning victory.

Fantasy Impact

Upton started the second half of the strong collecting five hits including two doubles in the weekend series against the Blue Jays. Upton has cut down on his strikeouts this season which has resulted in an increased batting average (.271) to go along with his typical power numbers. He is a solid fantasy OF in all league sizes.
