    Red Sox at least have struggled back to .500
    Jackie Bradley saved the game on an amazing catch last night.
    If we get on track now we could be ok.
    5 back on Tampa 3 behind NY.

    The Braves are fantastic at the moment. 7 straight wins and no. 1 in the NL East. Up next: second placed Phillies. Should be an interesting weekend.

    After 8 straight wins, the Braves lost last night, but put on one hell of a performance with a 15-1 win over the Phillies today to win the series. Great father's day entertainment! :cool:

    I just have to give a shout out to Christian Yelich This man is on fire!

    He has been the best hitter in the National League. He won the National League MVP in his first year with the Brew Crew. Yelich already is on his way to consecutive NL MVP’s, as he already has 30 home runs before the All-Star Break, To put it in perspective, he only hit 6 more homers all of last season than his current total–and we’re just starting July.

    Go Brewers![​IMG]

    The result from yesterday’s MLB All-Star Game:

    The In-helmet Mics was a brilliant idea.



    Here's some highlights from the Home Run Derby the night before:

    Yesterday, Ronald Acuña Jr. became just the third player in baseball history to hit 40 home runs in a single season prior to his 22nd birthday. Acuña also has a shot at becoming just the fifth player in baseball history to hit 40 homers and steal 40 bases in a season. He has 37 stolen bases.

    The Braves are one more win, or Nationals loss, from a second straight division title.

    Good times!

    It's a hell of a feat, I remember when Bryce Harper did this a few years back at the age of 22 and he was one of the few that had done it by that point.


    Edit: Did a bit of digging and found the youngest guys to do this (prior to Acuna). Harper was the 8th guy to do it at the age of 22, he ended up hitting 42 that year (2015):

    But as you pointed out, Acuna is the 3rd to do it BEFORE turning 22. Only 3 guys ever, that's amazing.


    Harmon Killebrew hit 40+ HRs EIGHT times in his career. The first time he hit 40+, he was 23. Just missed out on the club listed above.

    So this happened....

    The Atlanta Braves clinched their second straight NL East title as Ronald Acuña Jr. hit his 41st homer in a 6-0 win over San Francisco on Friday night that eliminated the Giants from postseason contention.

    Nice little comeback by the Braves in the 9th inning last night.

    The Braves now lead the series 2:1.
