MLB Power Rankings Week 25

Garrett Richards

1. Los Angeles Angels (93-56) (Last Week 1) –All they do now is win. The Angels just wrapped up a 10-game winning streak, during which they outscored opponents 86-34. It was the team’s longest winning streak since 2002.

2. Baltimore Orioles (89-60) (LW 2) – The Orioles will be without Chris Davis for the rest of the year due to his amphetamines suspension, though it shouldn’t matter much for the regular season, as Baltimore is on the verge of clinching the A.L. East title. They’ll just have to hope they don’t miss the power that has produced 26 home runs and 72 RBIs when he is also forced to sit out the first few games of the postseason.

3. Los Angeles Dodgers (85-64) (LW 3) In picking up a win on Sunday after his seventh straight outing of at least eight inning, Clayton Kershaw became the first 19-game winner in the majors. He is now one win away from his second 20-win season.

4. Washington Nationals (85-63) (LW 4) Jayson Werth, Ian Desmond, Adam LaRoche, and Anthony Rendon all have at least 80 RBIs, making the Nationals the only team in baseball with four such players. The Tigers are the only other team to have just three.

5. San Francisco Giants (82-67) (LW 5) – The Giants had a 10-game home winning streak snapped in a big way with a 17-0 loss to Dodgers on Saturday. The streak was the team’s longest since 2003.
