Let’s see owned baseball on May 7, 2019

Earning Full WOBs:

Mike Fiers threw the second no hitter of his career, striking out 6 Reds along the way, for the 2-0 final in Oakland.

Whit Merrifield hit 2 singles, a triple and a grand slam, stealing a base along the way, to help the Royals clobber Houston, 12-2.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was perfect through 5 and tossed a complete game 4 hit shutout, walking none and striking out 6 Braves for the Dodgers 9-0 victory.

Justin Turner launched 3 homers and added a fourth hit, driving in 6 to help the Dodgers blank the Braves, 9-0.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Hunter Pence reached base 4 times, including a homer, but the Rangers came up short against the Pirates, 5-4.

Franmil Reyes went 3 for 5 with a homer and 2 RBI in the Padres wild 7-6 loss to the Mets.

Aaron Sanchez threw 7 strong innings, allowing 3 hits and striking out 6 Twins. But his Blue Jays were shutout, 3-0.

Caleb Smith struck out 11 Cubs in 6 2/3 innings, giving up 2 runs. But he was not involved in the decision as Chicago walked off against the Marlins 5-2.

Ben Margot – AP

IT IS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME GAME FOR MIKE FIERS… AGAIN

Think of the great pitchers who have NEVER thrown a no hitter, like Greg Maddux or Roger Clemens or Steve Carlton.

Well Mike Fiers not only has thrown one… last night he had number two. Sure everyone was a little groggy in a night where the lights did not work in Oakland, but it was a No No in Oakland for the second straight year.

Now to update the list.

Baseball is more fun when it is Illogical – Locked On MLB Podcast – May 8, 2019 ( @lockedonmlb )

03D0CCD8-A352-41A7-8714-8CED67D888ADWhen baseball acts logically, whether it is in terms of stadium construction or strategy, the reasoning can be sound. But when baseball embraces a lack of logic and irrationality, it can be so much more fun.
