Earning Full WOBs:
Matt Adams hit a 3 run homer and a grand slam to lead the Nationals in a 15-5 pounding of the Diamondbacks.
Trevor Bauer threw a complete game 4 hit shutout, striking out 8 Tigers while walking none to earn the 8-0 decision for Cleveland.
Teoscar Hernández homered twice in the Blue Jays 12-0 blanking of Houston.
Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed 2 unearned runs over 7 innings, striking out 8 Cubs and walking none to set up the Dodgers 3-2 victory.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Ketel Marte homered, doubled, singled and walked, scoring 3 runs but the Diamondbacks were trashed by the Nationals, 15-5.
Shelby Miller stopped the bleeding with 3 innings of shutout relief, allowing 2 hits and 1 walk. But it was too little and too late as the Rangers were blown out by Cincinnati 11-3.
Jose Quintana kept the Cubs in the game during a Ryu start with 5 solid frames allowing 2 runs. He did not factor in the decision as the Dodgers won, 3-2.
Mike Trout reached base 3 times, including a homer, scoring 2 and driving in 2, but the Angels comeback fell a run short against Tampa Bay, 6-5.
