Max Scherzer struck out 10 Diamondbacks over 7 innings, giving up 3 hits, 2 runs and 1 walk to earn the 7-3 decision.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Charlie Blackmon went 4 for 7, including a homer, but the Rockies had an epic collapse in the 16-12 final against San Diego.

Jacob deGrom threw 7 innings, striking out 8 and no walks in the suspended game against the Cardinals. The game resumed and the Mets bullpen dropped the game 5-4.

Brad Keller silenced the mighty Twins bats with 7 scoreless frames, allowing 3 hits and 3 walks. The Kansas City bullpen would allow 2 runs which was enough in the 2-0 loss.

Luke Voit got on base 4 times including a homer that briefly gave the Yankees the lead. The rest of the night was all White Sox, who won 10-2.

Homer Bailey helped the Royals put on a show in Omaha with 6 shutout innings, striking out 6 Tigers and earning the 7-3 decision.

Charlie Blackmon collected 4 hits, including 2 homers, driving in 4, as the Rockies topped the Padres, 9-6.

Shohei Ohtani hit the first cycle for the Angels since 2013, driving in 3 runs to top the Rays, 5-3.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Manny Machado homered twice and singled but the Padres could not catch the Rockies in the 9-6 Coors slug fest.

Dovydas Neverauskas slowed down the Braves bats with 2 scoreless and hitless innings in relief to give the Pirates a chance. They came up just short, 6-5.

Hunter Pence reached base 4 times, including 2 doubles, scoring a run and driving in another as the Rangers dropped a wild 7-6 game in Boston.

Braves Have New Life and the Phillies Need To Counter: Locked On MLB – June 13, 2019

5B182F06-299B-4035-A4A6-E42DA319C05B

The rise of Austin Riley and the signing of Dallas Keuchel have given the Braves a nice spark as they sit in first place alone. The Phillies need to make a trade to keep up.

Meanwhile the Twins can score at will, Justin Verlander dominates and the Red Sox won in the stupidest way possible: A Walk Off Walk.
