Who Owned Baseball April 6, 2018 (Daily #MLB AL/NL Pitcher + Hitter MVP’s) + 2018 #WOB Standings
For an explanation of how WOB works, click here.
Manny Machado reached base 6 times, including 2 homers and a single in the game winning rally in the 14th to lead Baltimore past the Yankees in a wild 7-3 game.
Mychal Givens threw 2 scoreless and hitless frames in extra innings with the game on the line. Then he made a spectacular game saving block of the plate after throwing a potential walk off wild pitch. He did not get the decision nor earn a save, but he kept the Orioles alive to set up their 7-3 win over the Yankees.
Colin Moran got 4 hits, including a double, scoring 3 times and driving in 3 as the red hot Pirates clobbered the Reds, 14-3.
Luis Perdomo took one of the worst teams in baseball into the home of the red hot World Champion Astros and walked away a winner. He threw 5 solid innings, allowing 1 run and striking out 4 as the Padres took the 4-1 final.
