Let’s see owned baseball on July 18, 2019

Earning Full WOBs:

Madison Bumgarner pitched 9 innings, allowing 5 hits while striking out 6 Mets batters. The game went into extra innings where the Giants walked off, 3-2 in 16.

Chris Sale struck out 12 in 6 innings of 2 hit shutout ball as the Red Sox blanked Toronto, 5-0.

Stephen Strasburg went 3 for 3 with a homer and 5 RBI, owning the night as a hitter all the while throwing 5 1/3 innings, striking out 7 Braves to earn the 13-4 decision as a pitcher for the Nationals.

Gio Urshela went 3 for 4 in the opening game of a doubleheader, homering and driving in 3 runs to help the Yankees beat Tampa Bay, 6-2. He added a walk in the 5-1 nightcap win.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Kiké Hernández homered twice and singled twice, driving in 4 runs in the Dodgers 7-6 loss in Philadelphia.

Jake Jewell stopped the bleeding and gave the Angels 3 innings of shutout relief and a chance to comeback. But the Houston lead was too large in the 6-2 final.

Yoán Moncada got 3 hits, including a home run, but the White Sox came up short against Kansas City, 6-5.

Noah Syndergaard gave the Mets 7 strong innings, striking out 8 San Francisco batters while allowing 1 run. He was long gone from the game by the time the Giants walked off 3-2 in 16.
