With another week in the 2012 Major League Baseball season becoming history, the final stretch run to October is starting more and more to take shape.
In other news, the Los Angeles Angels continue to disappoint. After sweeping Boston, the Angels lost two-of-three against the Detroit Tigers. With just 34 games remaining, L.A. is four games (five in the loss column) behind Oakland.
Speaking of Oakland, the A's incredible story continued with a series win against the red-hot Tampa Bay Rays, on the road no less.
In the National League, it's the San Francisco Giants who have surged into first in the tight NL West with a three-game sweep of their free-wheeling rivals in Chavez Ravine.
