The Tribe keep rolling along, generously helped by rookie Tyler Naquin. His walk-off sacrifice fly on Thursday lifted the Indians over the White Sox for a series win. He topped that Friday with a walk-off, inside-the-park home run to beat the Blue Jays.
The Red Sox’s offense leads the majors with 5.51 runs scored per game, far ahead of MLB’s second-ranked team (Rockies, at 5.28 R/G) and the second-best in the AL (Indians, at 5.07 R/G). Mookie Betts leads the majors in runs (98) and total bases (291).
San Francisco snapped a four-game losing streak by taking the first two against the Mets, then fell to New York on Saturday. Heading into Sunday’s action, the Giants’ lead over the Dodgers had shrunk to just half a game. The two teams face off in a three-game set this week.
