Earning Full WOBs:

Zac Gallen struck out 8 Oakland batters over 7 innings, allowing 1 run. He did not get the decision but set up the Diamondbacks 4-3 walk off victory.
Fernando Tatis Jr. drove in 7 runs with a pair of homers to lead the Padres to a convincing 14-4 thrashing of the Rangers.
Luke Voit homered twice as the Yankees doubled up the Red Sox, 6-3.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Kyle Hendricks pitched into the 7th, allowing 3 hits and 3 runs in 6 1/3 innings, striking out 5 St. Louis batters. He would take the hard luck 3-1 decision for the Cubs.
Brad Miller reached base 3 times, including a pair of homers, in the Cardinals 5-4 loss to the Cubs.
Anthony Misiewicz stopped the Dodgers bats with 2 key shutout innings out of the bullpen, giving the Mariners time to mount a comeback. Unfortunately the rest of the Seattle relievers were torched in the 11-9 L. A. win.
Evan White homered twice but the Mariners bullpen collapsed in the 11-9 slugfest with the Dodgers.
