Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts.
Corey Kluber kept Houston until the sixth and pitched well into the 8th, finishing with 7 1/3 innings of 3 hit, 2 walk, 7 strikeout ball. But he would end up the hard luck loser as Cleveland dropped the game 2-0.
Mike Trout homered off of King Felix and then stole another homer with a leaping catch. It was not enough as the Mariners came back to beat the Angels, 4-1.
Max Scherzer kept the Mets from getting a hit until 6th and pitching into the 8th without allowing an earned run, striking out 8 along the way. But the Nationals defense betrayed him as he allowed 3 unearned runs and Washington lost 3-1.
Matt Kemp went 2-4 with a double and 3 runs batted in for his return to Los Angeles. Unfortunately for him, his former team beat his current team as the Dodgers topped San Diego 6-3.
