We have a full 15-game slate in the majors on Tuesday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 15 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 Tuesday, June 8th.

Phillies vs. Braves, 7:05 p.m. ET

Bryce Harper ($4,800)
Rhys Hoskins ($4,700)
Jean Segura ($4,000)

For our first DFS team stack, we are going to start with the Philadelphia Phillies, who are opening up a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves. The Phillies will have ace Aaron Nola on the mound, while the Braves will start Drew Smyly. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total for this game currently set at 9. The Phillies should be able to put up some runs on Smyly, who has struggled mightily in his first season with the Atlanta Braves.

The southpaw is 2-3 with a 5.98 ERA in nine starts this season. He has also allowed 14 HRs already, including 6 in five road starts. Left-handed hitters are having a field day against Smyly, slugging .314/.340/.686 with 5 HRs and 12 RBI. Harper is the lone left-handed bat in this team stack, which is not a bad option to have. This season, the star outfielder is hitting .267/.400/.333 against left handed pitching.

Astros vs. Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET

Jose Altuve ($5,200)
Carlos Correa ($4,800)
Yuli Gurriel ($4,400)

The Astros and Red Sox just played a four-game set against each other last week in Houston and will now face each other on Tuesday night at Fenway Park. The Astros will be giving the ball to Framber Valdez, while Martin Perez will get the start for the Red Sox. Both teams are hitting well against left-handed pitching, which is probably why the run total is at an insane 10 runs.

However, the best team stack play is the Astros as Perez has a 4.03 ERA in six home starts and allowing opponents to hit .268. Also, right-handed hitters are slashing .254/.327/.362 with 4 HRs and 15 RBI.

Giants vs. Rangers, 8:05 p.m. ET

Buster Posey ($4,900)
Donovan Solano ($3,300)
Steven Duggar ($3,000)

To wrap-up our team stacks for Tuesday night’s main slate, we are going to pick the San Francisco Giants, who will be taking on the Texas Rangers. The Giants will be playing in a hitter friendly ballpark — Globe Life Field and facing a starting pitcher in Jordan Lyles, who has not been great this season.

Lyles is 2-4 with an ERA of 5.75 through 12 starts, but has an ERA of 7.83 at home. In those five home starts, the veteran pitcher is giving up 6 home runs and letting teams to hit .361. Right-handed hitters are smoking Lyles this season, slashing .327/.358/.567 with 9 HRs and 24 RBI. Out of all three team stacks, this is the cheapest one and gives you the most salary cap flexibility.
