Who Owned Baseball Yesterday (May 8th) + Updated Yearly ‘WOB’ Standings
Paul Goldschmidt was a one man wrecking crew, smacking two homers and driving in all three Arizona runs as the Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers 3-2.
Mike Minor held the Cincinnati Reds to one run over 7 innings and striking out 7 as the Braves were triumphant, winning the series on the road.
Felix Hernandez pitched 8 solid innings letting up only one run and one walk as the Mariners held on to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
And Adam Rosales smashed a clutch 2 out game tying home run in the 9th inning for the A’s. He DID do that. Everyone saw it. Everyone saw the video. Just because Angel Hernandez botched the call doesn’t take away from the FACT that he hit that homer in that situation.
History will not record it as a home run and the A’s game tying rally was squashed even though it actually succeeded. I can not right that wrong and I can not change the past.
But I CAN increase the WOB total for Adam Rosales by one.
Rosales and the others all owned baseball on May 08, 2013
