Starting with Michael Fulmer throwing at Gary Sanchez, Miguel Cabrera gets in to with Andrew Romine‘s brother Austin Romine after reliever Tommy Khanle threw the first pitch behind Cabrera and was ejected. The two had a few words and brawl insues with Miggy showing some good moves
I don’t normally have a person getting a 1/2 WOB as the featured picture of Who Owned Baseball. I think you can understand why I made an exception today as I gave out the most brutal 1/2 WOB EVER.
Mark Leiter Jr. threw 7 innings of one hit shutout ball as the Phillies blanked Miami, 8-0.
Mike Fiers allowed 1 run over 7 innings as the Astros beat the Nationals, 6-1.
Rhys Hoskins doubled, homered and walked, driving in 5, as the Phillies clobbered the Marlins, 8-0.
Eric Hosmer reached base 4 times and launched a 2 out, 9th inning come from behind walk off homer to give the Royals a 6-4 win over Colorado.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Rich Hill threw a no hitter. HE THREW A NO HITTER. He pitched 9 innings, allowing no hits, no runs, no walks. He only allowed a base runner via an error in the 9th. That’s it. It was a masterpiece. The problem is the Dodgers didn’t score a run. So he took the no hitter into the 10th and let up a walk off homer. He lost a game where he threw a no hitter through 9. This is the most brutal 1/2 WOB of all time in his 1-0 loss to the Pirates.
Corey Kluber pitched into the 8th, striking out 12 Red Sox and allowing 2 runs over 7 2/3 innings. But he was on the wrong end of the Indians 6-1 defeat.
Joey Votto homered and singled but the Reds could not get past the Cubs, 9-3.
Kevin Kiermaier reached base 4 times, homering twice and driving in 3 but the Rays fell short to Toronto, 7-6.
