For an explanation of how WOB works, click here.

Trevor Story reached base 4 times, including 2 homers and drove in all the runs in the 4-0 Rockies blanking of Milwaukee.

Francisco Lindor homered twice and doubled twice to give the Indians a much needed 6-2 win over Kansas City.

Stephen Strasburg pitched into the 7th, finishing with 1 run and 1 walk over 6 2/3 innings, striking out 9 Diamondbacks and getting the 2-1 victory for the Nationals.

Charlie Morton struck out 14 Rangers over 7 innings, allowing 4 hits and 1 run to earn the 6-1 decision for the Astros.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Alen Hanson reached base 3 times, including a homer, but the Giants lost to the Pirates, 6-5.

John Hicks went 3 for 4 with a homer and a pair of RBI as the Tigers dropped the second game of a double header to the Mariners, 9-5. In the opener, Hicks singled and doubled in Detroit’s 4-3 win.

Michael Wacha threw 6 strong innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 run but did not factor into the decision as the Padres walked off against the Cardinals in extra innings, 2-1.

Doug Fister pitched into the 7th, holding the Astros to 3 runs while walking none. It would not be enough as the Rangers bullpen let the game get out of hand to a 6-1 final.
