Adolis García swatted his 16th longball on the season, knocked in a run and scored on another occasion, but his best efforts couldn’t help Texas avoid defeat by the count of 7-6 to the Whitesox. García is now tied with Shohei Othani for the league lead in runs batted in with 58.
Although Raisel Iglesias gave up a run via two hits in the ninth inning of the Braves 4-2 win against the Phillies, he still managed to register his team-leading 10th save on the campaign. The right from the Isle of Youth watched his ERA jump to 4.34 on the season.
Yennier Canó notched his league leading 17th hold of the season after tossing an inning of one-hit no run in Baltimore’s 8-6 win. The righty from Ciego de Avila, Cuba watched his fall to 0.96. Canó and his 0.80 are making a good case for in All-Star berth for the flamethrower this July in Seattle.
El Bombi is now tied for the @MLB RBI lead.
