Let’s see owned baseball on May 27, 2019
Earning Full WOBs:
Orlando Arcia got an RBI double and a key homer, driving in 3 altogether, as the Brewers came from behind to win 5-4 in Minnesota.
Yonny Chirinos threw a no hitter over 5 innings, walking 2 and striking out 7 Blue Jays. Tampa Bay’s bullpen would lose the no hitter and the shutout but not the game, which ended 8-3.
Austin Meadows got 3 hits, including a homer, drove in 3 and stole a base to help the Rays beat Toronto 8-3.
José Ureña held the Nationals to 4 hits, 1 walk and 2 runs over 7 innings to earn the 3-2 victory for Miami.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Adeiny Hechavarria went 3 for 5 with a homer and 2 RBI in the Mets 9-5 loss to the Dodgers.
Lance Lynn pitched 6 strong innings, striking out 10 Mariners along the way, but was saddled with the 6-2 Rangers loss.
Albert Pujols homered and added another hit, scoring twice, but the Angels could not stop the red hot A’s who won again, 8-5.
Max Scherzer struck out 6 Marlins in 6 innings, holding them to a single run. The Nationals bullpen lost again, 3-2.
