Another week in the books! Can anyone stop the Mariners? Can anyone score on Tampa’s pitching? Mike Trout literally put the Angels on his back as they went 6-1. Krush Davis keeps hitting dingers. Houston swept their week. Indians staff is in 2018 form. Dodgers got swept by the Cards. Rockies and Royals went winless. Padres’ young team beating veteran ball clubs. An unpredictable a season so far.
