6. Kansas City Royals (72-57) (LW 7) The Royals kept their winning ways going by taking advantage of a favorable road trip. KC finished their nine games against the Twins, Rockies, and Rangers 6-3 and maintain a two-game edge over the Tigers in the division.

7. Milwaukee Brewers (72-58) (LW 3) With his 43rd double on Sunday, Jonathan Lucroy is now four clear of an injured Paul Goldschmidt, and eight ahead of Adrian Gonzalez and Freddie Freeman, for the N.L. lead. If that holds, he will become the first catchers to lead his league in that category.

8. St. Louis Cardinals (70-59) (LW 8) – The Cardinals took care of business by sweeping Cincinnati over three games, but they followed that up by dropping two of three in Philadelphia. They haven’t won a series at Citizens Bank Park since 2006.

9. Seattle Mariners (71-58) (LW 9) The Mariners completed their first ever three-game series sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday. Despite playing behind the two best teams in baseball, the M’s are just six games out of first place.

10. Detroit Tigers (70-59) (LW 10)It was not a good week for Tigers pitching. The Detroit staff gave up 49 runs in seven games, including a 20-spot to the Twins on Friday, who then followed that up with 12 more in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Saturday. Still, the Tigers managed to go 4-3 in those games.
