I don’t normally have a person getting a 1/2 WOB as the featured picture of Who Owned Baseball. I think you can understand why I made an exception today as I gave out the most brutal 1/2 WOB EVER.

 

Mark Leiter Jr. threw 7 innings of one hit shutout ball as the Phillies blanked Miami, 8-0.

Mike Fiers allowed 1 run over 7 innings as the Astros beat the Nationals, 6-1.

Rhys Hoskins doubled, homered and walked, driving in 5, as the Phillies clobbered the Marlins, 8-0.

Eric Hosmer reached base 4 times and launched a 2 out, 9th inning come from behind walk off homer to give the Royals a 6-4 win over Colorado.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

 

Rich Hill threw a no hitter. HE THREW A NO HITTER. He pitched 9 innings, allowing no hits, no runs, no walks. He only allowed a base runner via an error in the 9th. That’s it. It was a masterpiece. The problem is the Dodgers didn’t score a run. So he took the no hitter into the 10th and let up a walk off homer. He lost a game where he threw a no hitter through 9. This is the most brutal 1/2 WOB of all time in his 1-0 loss to the Pirates.

Corey Kluber pitched into the 8th, striking out 12 Red Sox and allowing 2 runs over 7 2/3 innings. But he was on the wrong end of the Indians 6-1 defeat.

Joey Votto homered and singled but the Reds could not get past the Cubs, 9-3.

Kevin Kiermaier reached base 4 times, homering twice and driving in 3 but the Rays fell short to Toronto, 7-6.
