Dodgers are Unstoppable
It would be impossible for anyone to write something that hasn’t been written about the Dodgers already. They are simply playing in a league of their own. Currently, they enjoy a 12 game winning streak, beating the Royals 13-3. Will anyone challenge them in the playoffs? Or are they headed to another World Series?

Jacob deGrom is Not a Good Person
deGrom continued to show his health is at full strength, when on Saturday he pitched 6 innings of shutout ball agains the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies proved to be his toughest challenge this season, as they are enjoying the third best record since the All Star break. No challenge for him however, as he made the hitters look like they’ve never seen a breaking ball in their lives before. But then again, maybe they have never seen pitches like this.
Just disgusting. pic.twitter.com/b5cK3gVEbH

Best Moments From Yesterday
Nelson Cruz Makes Nationals History
Nelson Cruz has played on several MLB teams. He has enjoyed a successful career, and while this year may not have been as offensively fruitful as years’ past, he still continues to do what he can (especially with that Nats lineup). On Saturday, he became the first National in MLB history to reach 2000 hits.

The Astros Got Even Stronger with McCullers’ Return
The Astros and Dodgers are on a collision course for a 2017 World Series Rematch. Those chances only increased when the Astros enjoyed Lance McCullers Jr.‘ return from the injured list, when he made his first start in nearly 10 months. He did not disappoint. He went 6 innings, held the Athletics scoreless, and struck out 5 in the process.
