1. Boston Red Sox (39-26; 1st AL East)
Adrian Gonzalez continues to lead the planet in runs batted in with 60.
2. Milwaukee Brewers (38-28; 1st NL Central)
Since Zack Greinke’s return, the Brewers have the best record in baseball; they find themselves all alone atop the division for the first time since early June of 2009.
3. Philadelphia Phillies (40-26; 1st NL East)
Cliff Lee leads the majors in strikeouts (107) while Roy Halladay is second (106).
4. St. Louis Cardinals (38-29; 2nd NL Central)
A weekend sweep at Miller Park has knocked the Cards out of 1st place in the division.
5. New York Yankees (36-27; 2nd AL East)
Curtis Granderson (20) and Mark Teixeira (19) have the most homers among any duo in Bigs.
6. Texas Rangers (36-31; 1st AL West)
Alexi Ogando is still the AL Cy Young favorite with a 7 wins, no losses, a sparkling 2.10 ERA and an other worldly 0.90 WHIP.
7. Atlanta Braves (38-28; 2nd NL East)
The Braves have rattled off a NL best 6 consecutive wins to come within 2 games of division leading Philadelphia.
8. San Francisco Giants (37-29; 1st NL West)
With Pablo Sandoval set to return, the Giants (8-4 in June) are looking like they’ve forgot all about Mr. Posey.
9. Detroit Tigers (35-30; 1st AL Central)
Consistent play and an abysmal fall by Cleveland (1-9 in their last 10 games) has the Tigers tied for 1st place.
10. Seattle Mariners (34-32; 2nd AL West)
Brandon League is 18 for 21 in save opportunities with a 1.04 WHIP.
