Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts.
Ian Kennedy did a little of everything. He kept the Marlins hitless into the 5th, he struckout 12 and homered for the only Padres run. San Diego’s bats, defense and bullpen would betray him as the Marlins won in extra innings, 3-1.
Nolan Arenado extended his hitting streak to a Rockies franchise record 28 games. Their bats finally cooled, however, as Texas won 5-0.
Alexei Ramirez collected 4 hits and scored twice. But the White Sox would lose the all Chicago game to the Cubs, 12-5.
