Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the American League’s mid-season team MVPs.
Lonnie Chisenhall had a historic night with nine RBIs and three home runs in a five-hit game, as the Indians pounded the Rangers by a score of 17-7 Monday night.
Zach McAllister should break 200 if he stays healthy this year, which will be a boon to the back end of the Tribe’s rotation.
Elvis Andrus delivered a two-run single for the tying and go-ahead runs, and the Rangers rallied for a 5-3 victory over the Indians on Sunday.
Everybody is pitching in for the surging Texas Rangers. C.J. Wilson and two relievers combined for the Rangers’ sixth shutout in their last 20 games, and Texas beat the Indians 2-0 on Sunday for its first four-game sweep in Cleveland in nearly 33 years.
