Let’s see owned baseball on April 1, 2019

Earning Full WOBs:

Brandon Belt homered to get the Giants on the board and then hit a 2 run double to put them ahead for good as the beat the Dodgers, 4-2.

David Hess took a no hitter into the 7th and finished with 6 1/3 hitless shutout innings, walking 1 and striking out 8 Blue Jays. The Orioles bullpen would blow the no hitter and the shutout but not the game, which was a 6-5 final.

Kevin Kiermaier hit an RBI double and a 3 run homer as the surging Rays crushed the Rockies, 7-1.

Merrill Kelly threw 6 strong innings, allowing 3 runs while striking out 3 Padres to earn the 10-3 decision for the Diamondbacks.

 

 

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Chris Archer struck out 8 Cardinals over 5 shutout innings. The Pirates bullpen would ultimately lose the 6-5 game in 11.

Randal Grichuk broke up a no hitter with his 7th inning homer and later hit a double in the Blue Jays 6-5 loss to Baltimore.

Colin Moran reached base 4 times, doubled and homered, driving in 3, but it was not enough as the Pirates dropped their home opener to the Cardinals, 6-5.

Ivan Nova held the Indians to 1 run over 7 strong innings, allowing 6 hits and 1 walk. He did not factor into the decision as the White Sox came up short, 5-3.

The Pirates may have helped themselves the most, bleeding into 2019. The Nationals probably should have seen what Harper could have fetched.

But the Mets botched the entire day and continue to doom their franchise.

Rays pitcher Chris Archer has some admirable sentiments about the WBC. But I think that a real unifying lesson can be found with how baseball is already set up.
