A.J. Burnett threw 7 innings of 3 hit, 12 strikeout ball, allowing a single solo homer and helped the Phillies stop the red hot Nationals, 3-2

Giancarlo Stanton got on base 3 times including a critical 3 run homer as the Marlins continued to climb into the Wild Card race and beat the first place Angels, 7-1.

Clay Buchholz pitched shutout ball into the 9th inning. He was undone by a softly hit ball into the infield and a blown save by the bullpen. But the Red Sox would ultimately win in Toronto, 4-3 after 10 innings.

Delmon Young got on base 4 times with a walk, a single, a double and a homer, driving in 3 and leading a potent Orioles attack to a 9-1 drubbing of the Rays.

Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts.

Francisco Liriano threw 6 shutout innings, striking out 8 in the Pirates 3-2 loss to the Cardinals.

Andrew McCutchen went 3-4 with a homer but the Pirates fell short to St. Louis, 3-2.

Scott Feldman pitched 7 innings, allowing just 3 runs and keeping the Astros in the game. But the A’s would erupt off of the Houston bullpen and pull away, 8-2.

Edwin Encarnacion launced a game tying double with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th that almost cleared the wall for a walk off homer. He stunned the Red Sox but they would come back to win, 4-3 in Toronto.

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