Let’s see owned baseball on August 2, 2019
Earning Full WOBs:
Javier Báez went 3 for 5 with a homer and 3 RBI and a stolen base to give the Cubs a 6-2 victory over rival Milwaukee.
Nelson Cruz reached base 4 times, including a home run, driving in 5 as the Twins took the 11-9 slug fest with Kansas City.
Eric Lauer allowed just 3 hits, 2 runs and no walks over 6 innings to earn the 5-2 decision for the Padres over the Dodgers.
Lance Lynn struck out 10 Tigers in 7 innings, giving up 1 run as the Rangers hung on for the 5-4 final.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Hunter Dozier homered twice but the Royals fell short to the Twins, 11-9.
Dillon Peters entered the game in the first inning and gave the Angels 7 2/3 innings of relief, allowing 3 runs along the way. The damage had already been done as Cleveland won, 7-3.
Roman Quinn reached base 4 times, homered, stole two bases and even pitched 2 innings out of the bullpen. Sadly, he was credited with the loss as a pitcher as the Phillies fell to the White Sox 4-3 in 15 innings.
Alex Young struck out 9 Nationals over 6 innings, allowing just 3 hits and 2 runs. He would be stuck with the hard luck 3-0 decision for Arizona.

The Twins had an epic bullpen meltdown that could haunt them if the season ends with just a few games separating them. Meanwhile Clayton Kershaw moves closer to the title of “greatest Dodger ever” and the Cardinals take a risk by doing nothing.
