The MVP race was crowded with guys having superstar seasons, but it feels like the race is down to one: Mookie Betts. He's now hitting an insane .345/.435/.642 and slugged his 32nd home run tonight. It's one of the great seasons in Red Sox history, alongside Yaz in '67 and Ted Williams in '41, '42 and '46.

Bryce Harper has finally hit the century mark. Harper collected his 100th RBI with a sacrifice fly against Miami Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara. It's the first time in his seven-year career that he's reached triple digits in ribbies. Harper's previous best RBI total came during his 2015 MVP season, when he drove in 99 runs in 153 games. Oddly enough, heading into Monday's game against Miami, Harper had driven in...99 runs in 153 games.

Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks left Monday's game with a tight left hamstring. He was removed in the fourth inning, replaced by Brett Gardner. The previous inning, Hicks appeared to come up limping as he crossed first base, beating out a double play attempt. His injury comes as the Yankees are already monitoring Didi Gregorius' wrist injury, received on Hicks' game-winning, playoff-clinching hit last Saturday.

Brewers announcers said Ryan Braun told them he woke up this morning with a good feeling in his gut about this series against the Cardinals and he just crushed a second-inning home run into the upper deck in left field off Jack Flaherty to give the Brewers the 1-0 lead.

Cole Hamels is trending the wrong way in regards to the long ball. Over his first 7 starts as a Cub he didn't give up a single home run. Now he's given up at least one in his last 4 outings, including a first inning blast tonight to Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli.

The main lights just went out inside Tropicana Field. (The scoreboards did stay on) There's a ferocious thunderstorm going on outside. Some serious thunder can be heard.

Didi Gregorius is feeling much better today than he even was yesterday. So, based on how he's feeling now, does that mean he thinks he'll be back before the end of the regular season? "Yes. Before the end of the season."

With Didi Gregorius out, the Yankees have one left-handed bat (switch hitter Aaron Hicks') in the lineup today at Tampa Bay:

Looks like the Yankees will be bullpenning the bullpeners tonight at Tampa Bay. Right-handed reliever Jonathan Holder (1-3, 2.97 ERA) will be opening things against the Rays.
