Adolis García went yard for the 22nd time on the campaign and knocked in the only two runs on the day for Texas in their 4-2 loss to the Red Sox. The outfielder now leads all of MLB with 71 and will also be part of the homerun contest in the All-Star Game festivities.
J.D. Martínez continues to be a vital part of the Dodgers offense in yesterday’s contest the Cuban- American slugger deposited his 20th ball of the season in the stands, drove in two runs and scored on two other occasions to lead LA to a 6-4 win over the Pirates. The recently elected All-Star has also driven in 55 runs on the year.
Although he only collected a hit in five at-bats, Nick Castellanos swatted a key solo-shot in the sixth inning to give the Phillies some breathing room in their 8-4 win over Tampa. The native of Miami watched his average fall to .310 on the season.
