Stacking has been a popular way to bring down tournaments, and some stacks are even cash game viable. We offer three free top stacks of the night and will provide stacks in a wide range of price tags. We do want to make it known that stacks in Colorado are often fairly obvious and popular stacks. We don't feel the need to break down Colorado stacks and will be more focused on other stacking options. Unless we are struggling to find three others, Colorado stacks will be a top choice but not broken down. We tend to look at park factors, Vegas numbers, starting pitcher and bullpen numbers, and various offensive stats. Feel free to shoot us questions on Twitter at @BrentHeiden1, @JGuilbault11, and @dfcafe.

The Giants standout as a value stack tonight, and everyone in the lineup is as projected which helps. It starts with Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey, both hammering Wei-Yen Chen's fastball range of the low 90mph fastball. Posey has a .469 wOBA and .240 ISO off the pitch dating back to 2016, while McCutchen has a .432 wOBA and .344 ISO. Both have hard-contact rates over 40% against left-handers this season. Gorkys Hernandez is a bit strikeout happy, but has a .497 wOBA and .361 ISO off Chen's fastball range and has a .408 xwOBA off left-handed pitching on the season. Evan Longoria has gone back in time with a .374 wOBA and .296 ISO off left-handed pitching. His numbers off Chen's fastball sport a .398 wOBA and .275 ISO. All these names are fairly cheap around the industry, and it doesn't stop there. Nick Hundley is in the lineup if you want to pivot off Posey, or use alongside. He has a .401 wOBA and .404 ISO off Chen's fastball range, but overall has crushed lefties this season with a .370 ISO and .433 wOBA. Mac Williamson is a small sample size bat, but has a .382 wOBA and .308 ISO off his fastball range. His numbers against lefties are due for some small regression, but he has a .419 wOBA and .235 ISO off them this season. Despite the lefty on lefty matchup, Brandon Crawford has a .385 wOBA and .237 ISO off southpaws this season.

This one is pretty straight forward, and you can tell by the lefty splits for Lucas Giolito. He has allowed monster numbers to left-handers, and Cleveland is lining up seven of them tonight. Greg Allen is a cheap bat leading off, and doesn't have terrific numbers against right-handers, but is a salary relief play and has some good hitters that can drive him in behind. Michael Brantley has a .388 wOBA and .224 ISO off right-handers this season, while even Melky Cabrera and Lonnie Chisenhall are two guys that round out the outfield. Both are valuable outfield options on this slate, and are in the best spots for left-handed hitters. Both Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez are on fire this season, especially Ramirez. He has a .351 ISO and .429 wOBA off right-handers, while Lindor has a .261 ISO and .350 wOBA. Both are exceptional high dollar options. Yonder Alonso is one of my favorite first base options today, and you don't have to make a choice with Edwin Encarnacion out of the lineup. Alonso has a .194 ISO off right-handers. Giolito is throwing a 91-92 mph fastball 56% of the time this season, which is getting hit for a .391 wOBA and .238 ISO. All these Cleveland bats eat that range of fastball alive.

Jordan Lyles has been dreadful against both sides of the plate dating back to last season. While I tend to target the Cardinals away from Busch Stadium, a 90 degree night with some humidity is pretty good hitting conditions. Both sides of the plate stand out here, which is good for the Cardinals given they are heavily right-handed. Matt Carpenter and Dexter Fowler are the two lefties to use here, both were having unlucky seasons via BABIP. The hard-contact and batted ball numbers back up some positive regression, and we have already seen that for Carpenter. He has a .342 wOBA and .209 ISO against right-handed pitching this season. Fowler has a .274 wOBA and .141 ISO which does not look promising, but a .200 BABIP and solid batted ball stats should start to turn around. This St. Louis outfield has been hitting the ball extremely hard against right-handers but the trend in St. Louis is that a lot of balls are being hit into the ground. Marcell Ozuna, Tommy Pham and Jose Martinez are in that mix. Both have over a 40% hard-contact rate against right-handed pitching, but near 50% groundball rates. Not thrilling, but three of Lyles pitches have less than a 42% groundball rate on the year, especially his fastball and sinker. The Cardinals have some potential tonight, and guys like Yadier Molina and Jedd Gyroko are value options to consider as well.
