Who Owned Baseball Yesterday (April.07) – Updated MLB Yearly ‘WOB’ Standings 2014
Jordan Lyles dominated the White Sox completely and in all ways. He pitched into the 7th inning, letting up 1 run and 5 hits over 6 2/3 innings. He also went 3-3 with a double and 2 runs batted in as the Rockies clobbered Chicago, 8-1.
Troy Tulowitzki contributed to the Colorado 8-1 blow out of the White Sox with a 3-3 performance. He doubled, homered and walked, missing the cycle by a triple.
Jackie Bradley Jr. had the second three hit game of his career. He drove in Boston’s first two runs and his bunt single led to a run scoring error. He would later score another run as he sparked the Red Sox 5-1 victory over the Rangers.
Jason Vargas pitched into the 9th inning, keeping the Rays off of the scoreboard until the final frame. He would finish with 8 plus innings, 4 hits and 1 walk, letting up only a solo homer as the Royals topped Tampa 4-2.
