Let’s see owned baseball on July 14, 2019
Earning Full WOBs:
José Altuve went 3 for 5 with a grand slam and 3 runs scored to help the Astros pound the Rangers, 12-4.
A. J. Pollock hit a 3 run homer in the first innings, added 2 more hits, including scoring a run in the 12 inning game winning rally to help the Dodgers survive in Boston, 7-4.
Mike Soroka held the Padres scoreless over 7 innings, collected 9 strikeouts en route to a 4-1 Atlanta victory.
Ryan Yarbrough came into the game in the third inning and took the combined perfect game into the 9th. He would surrender 2 hits and a run over 6 1/3 innings and earn the 4-1 decision for Tampa Bay over the Orioles.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Xander Bogaerts reached base 4 times including a homer, in the Red Sox 12 inning 7-4 loss to the Dodgers.
Reynaldo López allowed 1 unearned run over 6 innings, striking out 7 Oakland batters. The White Sox would commit a critical error in the 9th which led to the 3-2 walk off defeat.
Cal Quantrill blanked the Braves in his 6 innings of work, allowing 3 hits and 1 walk. He would not fare in the decision as the Padres fell, 4-1.
Christian Yelich homered and singled but the Brewers dropped the 8-3 game to San Francisco.
