We have an 11-game slate in the majors Wednesday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 14 games starting at 7:05 p.m. ET.

Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the MLB game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can learn more about MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.

Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Wednesday, June 2.

Nationals vs. Braves, 7:20 p.m. ET

Ronald Acuna Jr. ($5,700)
Austin Riley ($4,100)
Dansby Swanson ($4,100)

Our first DFS team stack for tonight’s main slate will be an NL East matchup between the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 10, which is the second-highest total on the board. Jon Lester will be on the mound for the Nats, while Drew Smyly will get the start for the Braves. Lester is making this start on short rest after just pitching on Saturday. Over his career, the southpaw has an ERA of 3.74 when pitching four days in between starts.

However, this season, right-handed batters have crushed Lester, hitting .310/.376/.500 with 3 HRs and 13 RBI. Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson is a great value play here as he has a 10-game hitting streak going on.

Twins vs. Orioles, 7:05 p.m. ET

Nelson Cruz ($4,600)
Alex Kirilloff ($4,500)
Josh Donaldson ($4,300)

Another game where there were a ton of runs scored was between the Minnesota Twins and Baltimore Orioles. Both teams are starting pitchers, who have ERAs over 6.00 in Randy Dobnak (6.49) and Matt Harvey (6.84). Dobnak got roughed up in his last outing, while Harvey is making a start on short rest and will reportedly only pitch a few innings. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total set at 9.5.

For Tuesday’s DFS team stacks, we picked a Twins stack, which paid off and we are going to likely stay with Minnesota for tonight’s game. Nelson Cruz is a great play here as he scored 13 fantasy points on Tuesday and is a right-handed bat. This season, right-handed batters are slashing .336/.380/.496 with 2 HRs and 18 RBI.

Athletics vs. Mariners, 10:10 p.m. ET

Mitch Haniger ($5,200)
J.P. Crawford ($2,700)
Taylor Trammell ($2,300)

To wrap up our team stacks for Wednesday’s main slate, we are going to head out west where the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners will play each other to end the night. The team stack we are going to choose is the Mariners, who will be facing A’s starting pitcher Sean Manaea.

Manaea has had a mixed bag of results this season, despite a 3-2 record and 3.86 ERA in 11 starts this season. In four road starts, the 29-year-old is 1-1 with an ERA of 5.00. Opponents are also hitting .320 off of Manaea away from the Oakland Coliseum. Additionally, right-handed hitters are slashing .317/.363/.444 with 4 HRs and 16 RBI. If you play this stack, then Mitch Hanger is the one player you have starting. He’s by far their best hitter with a batting average of .265, 14 HRs, 35 RBI, and averaging 9.1 fantasy points per game.
