The Yankees somehow won a lost game. I'm hoping they have recaptured the early season magic just in time.

Aaron Judge has hit his 60th home run of the season.

Two more and he will be the real single season home run king.
While I agree with you, many donít. Whatís indisputable is that heíll be the AL home run king.

It also means that the top three single-season home run leaders in the AL have all worn pinstripes (Judge, Ruth and Maris). I hope Judge's hair isn't falling out in his quest for 62.

The Astros clinched their division, they made it to the playoffs!  :clap:
The Braves are in the playoffs too, so a rematch of last season's Fall Classic is possible, but I wouldn't count on it happening. Currently, they're running neck-and-neck with the Mets, and of course, I want Atlanta to win the NL East.

He seems to be thriving. He just went into the lead for AL batting average as well, which means heíd win the Triple Crown if it stays.

I also still recognize Roger Maris' 61 as the North American Major league record for a 162 game season.

In what year did Mantle hit 59? His highest single season total is 54 in 1961. Ruth hit 59 in 1921 for third place.

For some reason I thought he had a year like that. Oh well.

Watch the video. Watch closelyóthe combination of the score box and the bright light on the outfield wall make the beginning a little hard to see.

Albert Pujols has just his 700th home run.

It was at Dodger Stadium, and with the division and home field advantage pretty well wrapped up for the Dodgers, the fans were able to appropriately appreciate the moment and not care that they were losing.

I'd love for my team to have the division and HFA wrapped up and not care that they were losing, but being a White Sox fan that isn't possible at least with our worthless owner.

The Cleveland Guardians have clinched the AL Central Division title.

No one was expecting this at the beginning of the year, as this is the youngest roster in Major League Baseball.

Albert Pujols has just his 700th home run.
And with that, he's only the third to reach that mark the legitimate way. Barry Bonds may have 762, but he cheated his ass off just to get there.

Congratulations to Albert, even though I can't stand the Cardinals. This was definitely the feel-good moment of the season. Still hoping Aaron Judge hits 62 before the year is through.

The Mariners are going to the playoffs for the first time since 2001. They eliminated my Orioles from playoff contention tonight, though as a consolation prize the Orioles won their 81st game tonight, officially ending the teamís streak of losing seasons, and tying the 2004 Tigers for the biggest increase in wins for a team that lost 110+ games the previous season. (The 03-04 Tigers went from 43-119 to 72-90, an improvement of 29 wins, and the Orioles sit at 81 wins after going 52-110 last year.)

Mariners making the playoffs with a walk-off in the 9th inning is just peak storytelling.

In other words, every Seattle team I've seen play so far this year (Sounders, Mariners, Reign, Seawolves, Storm) has made the playoffs...except the Sounders.

The Dodgers are the first NL team to win 110 games since the 1909 Pirates.

Pujols now has 703 HRs for his career (good for fourth on the all-time list, or third if we ignore Bonds), and Judge will have to hit 62 on the road, since he had none in the Yankees' last home series of the season.
