April 14, 2012: Matt Kemp went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-1 victory over the San Diego Padres. He’s now batting .457 with five home runs and 15 RBI this season.
Line: 4 AB | 2 R | 3 H | 4 RBI
My fantasy perspective: Kemp is off to a tremendous start, leading the Major Leagues in all Triple Crown categories. Toss in 12 runs and one stolen base and he looks like he’ll be rewarding fantasy owners with another top-5 overall performance. If there was any speculation as to whether 2011 was a fluke or not, I think we’re getting the answer. No!
