With his second jack of the game and 14th of the season, Daniel Murphy just tied his career high in homers - in June. Since leaving the Mets, the Nats slugger has a 1.229 OPS against his former team.

I love watching Brian Dozier play. Now up to 10 straight games with an extra-base hit. Last AL player to do that: Not Mike Trout or Miguel Cabrera. Not even A-Rod. It's Johnny Damon in 2009.

Another dominant outing for Danny Salazar, as the Indians are three outs away from their 12th win in a row. Salazar tossed seven scoreless frames to lower his ERA to 2.22 as opponents are hitting just .185 against him. I'd go with Chris Sale as the AL All-Star starter, but Salazar should be a lock to make the team.

Max Scherzer, who's dominating the Mets tonight (6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K) has increased his strikeout total every year since 2011: 174, 231, 240, 252, 276. He's now at 147 on the season and is threatening to become just the second pitcher since 2002 to have a 300-K campaign.
