Buster Posey reached base 5 times including a homer and a pair of doubles, helping the Giants come from behind and beat the Cubs, 5-3.

Brandon McCarthy threw a complete game 4 hit shutout, striking out 8 and walking none, helping the Yankees avoid a sweep by Houston, 3-0.

Clayton Kershaw threw no hit ball into the 6th and finished with 8 masterful 3 hit, 1 run innings, striking out 10 Padres and earning the 2-1 victory for the Dodgers.

Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts.

Zach Walters homered and provided almost all of Cleveland’s offense as they fell 4-1 to the Twins.

Justin Ruggiano singled and homered, driving in 2 in the Cubs 5-3 loss to the Giants.

David Price threw a masterpiece, pitching 8 innings of 1 hit, no earned run ball, striking out 9 and walking none. But the Rays, his former team, beat the Tigers in a tense 1-0 pitchers duel.

Tyson Ross threw a complete game and matched Kershaw almost inning for inning and even singled off of him. He allowed just 4 hits and struck out 8. But one of the hits was a homer that was the difference in the Padres 2-1 loss to the Dodgers.

 

So Let’s factor in yesterday’s heroics into the year long WOB standings
