MLB Standings Update

The AL West standings look as good as they have since the early part of April, with the Rangers on five-game and three-series win streaks and the Angels and A's fumbling a bit. The Mariners have ridden their quality pitching and terrible offense to a 7-3 record in their last ten and are holding their ground.

Texas has made their way to the ninth best ERA in baseball and fifth best in the AL at 3.50. They have scored the fourth most runs in the AL and sixth most in baseball with 283 (4.7 per game).
