Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts...
Todd Frazier hit a pair of homers, driving in 4 runs, keeping the Reds in the game. It was not enough as St. Louis won 7-6.
Tyler Flowers got four hits for the White Sox. Oddly he was lifted for a pinch hitter in the 9th inning as the White Sox fell just short, 10-9, against the Twins. Maybe they should have let him hit.
