Aug 11 MLB Standings Review

Well, we saw how the Oakland Athletics came out swinging on Sunday against the Astros, but the real slugfest was Monday night in Anaheim, as the Angels put some life back into their season with a rousing 10-9 victory that featured a pair of Mike Trout clouts, including the game-winner in the bottom of the eighth. Trout now has seven homers, putting any and all fears to rest about his willingness to play in the COVID-19 era.

The Padres also used the long-ball to knock off NL West rival Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium Monday night. It was all-or-nothing catcher Austin Hedges who went deep in the 2-1 victory, giving the Padres 30 homers on the season to lead the Major Leagues.
