Rich Schultz, AP

For an explanation of how WOB works, click here.

Victor Martinez homered twice, including a dramatic 2 run game tying shot in the 9th, as the Tigers stunned the Yankees, 8-7.

Wade LeBlanc threw 7 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and striking out 4 Oakland batters to give the Mariners a much needed 7-1 victory.

Lorenzo Cain got on base 3 times, including a go ahead homer in the 11th to give the Brewers a 2-1 win in Cincinnati.

Wade Miley pitched into the 8th, allowing 1 run over 7 1/3 innings. He did not get the decision but helped set up the Brewers 2-1 extra inning triumph over the Reds.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

 

Gleyber Torres went 3 for 4 with a homer and 2 RBI, but the Yankees allowed the Tigers to comeback in the 9th and take the 8-7 game.

Lucas Giolito held the mighty Red Sox to 2 hits and 1 run over 6 1/3 innings, striking out 8. But the White Sox bullpen imploded to give the game a misleading 9-4 final.

Manny Machado singled, walked and homered, providing almost all of the Dodgers offense as they lost to the Diamondbacks, 3-1.

German Marquez struck out 13 Padres over 8 innings, allowing 2 hits and 2 runs. The Rockies dropped the 3-2 game in extra innings.
