MLB Watch: A-Rod is Heating Up

words_Nick Engvall

With the second half of the Major League Baseball season under way, it’s the time of year that superstars step up for their team. In the American League, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees has stepped up, batting .375 over the last week compared to his season average of .275, A-Rod is also dealing with a minor thumb injury.

In the National League, the San Francisco Giants are the hottest team. They’ve run off a string of wins since the All Star Game, wining 5 out of 6 games, and moving into second place in the National League West behind pitching, and rookie of the year candidate Buster Posey. Posey is near the top of the league in the month of July in Batting Average, Home Runs, Runs Batted In, and slugging percentage.

Check out some of the photos from around the league below and find Eastbay Baseball on Facebook.
