Earning Full WOBs:
Shane Bieber threw a complete game victory, striking out 8 Angels while only allowing 2 runs to earn the 6-2 decision for Cleveland.
Shin-Soo Choo reached base 5 times, scoring 3 and driving in another to help the Rangers top Detroit, 9-4.
Sonny Gray threw 7 shutout innings, holding Atlanta to 4 hits. The Reds bullpen would blow the lead but the bats would come to the rescue in extra innings for the 6-4 final.
Max Muncy went 4 for 5 with a homer and a walk off 2 run double in the bottom of the 9th to give the Dodgers a wild 11-10 victory over San Diego.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Randal Grichuk went 4 for 5 with 2 doubles but Toronto fell to Baltimore, 6-5.
