A’s lead the way
(AP) — The All-Star symbolizes the mid-way mark of the baseball season. In fact the teams are well beyond the half-way mark of the season as each team has played more than 81 games, the actual mid-way point of the 162 game season.
That said, the top team at the break is Oakland as the Athletics sport a record of 59-36. They lead the American League West by 1 ½ games over the Angels.
The top team in the National League is Los Angeles as the Dodgers are 54-43, a game in front of the Giants in the National League West.
The other divisional leaders in the NL are Washington in the East and Milwaukee in the Central.
In the AL the Orioles top the East and the Tigers the Central.
