Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Dan Straily allowed 1 hit and struck out 7 in 5 1/3 innings. But his 5 walks took him out of the game early and the Marlins bullpen dropped the 5-3 game to Philadelphia.
Taylor Cole came out of the bullpen in the first innings and threw 3 2/3 innings of 1 hit shutout ball, striking out 3 Indians along the way. The early damage stuck and the Angels fell 4-3.
Ben Zobrist came off the bench to single, homer and score a pair of runs. The Cubs bullpen would let the 10-6 game against San Diego get out of hand.
Whit Merrifield got 4 hits, including a 2 run homer, in the Royals 6-5 loss to the Twins.
