Let’s see owned baseball on April 8, 2019
Earning Full WOBs:
Edwin Encarnación hit 2 homers in the same inning helping the red hot Seattle Mariners overcome an initial 4-2 hole into a 13-5 thrashing of the Royals.
Rhys Hoskins put the Phillies ahead for good with a solo homer and then added another to top the Nationals, 4-3.
Miles Mikolas held the mighty Dodger offense to 3 runs over 6 innings and gave the Cardinals a chance to come from behind and take the 4-3 final.
Blake Snell struck out 11 White Sox while walking none over 6 innings to earn the 5-1 decision for the Rays.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Jhoulys Chacín pitched into the 7th, finishing with 3 hits and 3 runs over 6 1/3 innings, walking 3 Angels. The Brewers bats would let him down in the hard luck 5-2 loss.
Aaron Judge reached base 4 times, including an opposite field homer, but the Yankees came up short against Houston, 4-3.
Mike Moustakas singled and homered, scoring both Brewers runs in their 5-2 defeat by the Angels.
Masahiro Tanaka gave up just 3 hits, 2 walks and 1 run over 6 solid innings, striking out 3 Houston batters. The usually reliable Yankee bullpen lost the 4-3 final.
