The Wolf moved past 500 winners for the season and the Pirates topped it off with an upset win over the Cubs. Around the Majors, the NL West is challenging the AL East for the best division as three teams have 40+ wins. The Marlins have jumped into second place in the NL East but the Nationals still lead by 11 games. The AL Central is the tightest division race with just 4 games separating first and last. The Indians are back in the lead after three straight wins. The Yankees have lost 5 games in a row and have let their lead slip in the AL East. While the Reds have the worst losing streak at 8 games. On Sunday, the Red Sox and Astros just finished under the total game score, despite a 3 run first inning, so the Wolf was unlucky in that bet. He’ll preview the two teams again on Monday.
