MVP of Yesterday (August 19, 2014): Hisashi Iwakuma

There were several fine candidates for MVP of Yesterday. Stephen Strasburg, Carl Crawford, Aaron Harang, the Cubs grounds crew that basically got them the win

But I’m going with Hisashi Iwakuma of the Mariners, who went 8 innings of 4-hit ball, a 0.5 WAR and 11 Ks (and no walks!).
