“El Bombi” drives in two, but Texas falls to Boston.

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.
