Let’s see owned baseball on July 4, 2019
Earning Full WOBs:
Luis Castillo took a no hitter into the 7th and finished with 7 2/3 scoreless one hit innings, striking out 9 Brewers for the 1-0 final.
Lance Lynn worked out of jam after jam, holding the Angels to 2 runs over 7 innings to earn the 9-3 decision for the Rangers.
Marcus Semien reached base 3 times, including 2 homers, driving in 5 runs as the red hot A’s won again, 7-2, over Minnesota,
Dansby Swanson hit a double and two homers, driving in 5, to help the Braves double up the Phillies, 12-6.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Starlin Castro collected 3 hits, including a double, in the Marlins 5-2 loss to Washington.
Yonny Chirinos threw 7 solid innings, striking out 5 Yankees and giving up 3 runs. The wild 8-4 game was a bullpen affair lost by the Rays.
Danny Jansen homered twice and added another hit, driving in 5, but the Blue Jays bullpen dropped the 8-7 game to the Red Sox.
Brandon Woodruff allowed an early run and shut the Reds out for the rest of his 6 innings of work. That run was one too many as the Brewers were blanked, 1-0.
