With their 16-6 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday, the Texas Rangers advance to 37-20 on the season and remain the leaders in the AL West. The big boys at the top of the lineup were on fire. Marcus Semien went 4-for-6, Corey Seager went 3-for-5, and Nathaniel Lowe went 3-for-6. Semien and Lowe homered, along with Leody Taveras and Mitch Garver. Every starter recorded a hit, except for Josh Jung who did reach on a walk. They really are the power Rangers.

— New York Yankees (@Yankees) June 4, 2023
This weekend’s marquee matchup is the New York Yankees vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers took game one on Friday night thanks to a multi-homer game from Mookie Betts. Aaron Judge was the superhero on Saturday night, however, as the Yankees defeated the Dodgers 6-3. Judge hit a solo home run in the sixth inning and made a fantastic, fence-buckling grab in right field in the eighth. The Yankees also got some help from Jake Bauers who had two home runs in the game.

Former big leaguer Doug Glanville now works for ESPN as an MLB analyst. He was talking with the Dodgers’ newest rookie pitcher Bobby Miller. He asked Miller about that former Cubs player Doug Glanville, and he hit him with who???
Congrats to Joey Votto!
He's not done playing yet but Joey Votto accomplished his goal. 😅
