Earning Full WOBs:

Ronald Acuña Jr. hit three homers between two games of a double header, clubbing 2 in the night cap and collecting a combined 5 hits altogether as the Braves took both games against Philadelphia, 5-2 and 8-0.

Dinelson Lamet took a no hitter into the 7th and finished with 10 strike outs, 1 hit, 1 run and no walks over 6 2/3 innings as the Padres pounded Arizona, 9-5.

Mitch Moreland homered twice, including a walk off shot in the 9th, as the Red Sox took the 5-3 final over Toronto.

Spencer Turnbull threw 7 innings, allowing 1 run while striking out 4 Pirates as the Tigers won a razor thin, 2-1 game.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Charlie Blackmon singled and doubled in the Rockies 5-3 loss to Seattle.

Kevin Gausman pitched into the 7th, holding the Dodgers to 1 run and 3 hits. The Dodgers slugged multiple homers off of the Giants bullpen and won, 6-2.

Yuli Gurriel reached base 3 times, including a home run, but the rest of the Astros bats were dead and they lost again to Oakland, 7-2.

James Paxton struck out 11 Rays in 6 1/3 innings but did not fare in the decision as the Yankees bullpen dropped the 4-3 final in the 9th.
