The Orioles, Yankees, and Red Sox are neck and neck atop the AL East.
MLB Mid-Season Report
The pennant race couldn't be any tighter in the AL East. The Baltimore Orioles have given up their lead to the Red Sox, and are neck and neck with the red-hot Yankees in a race to overtake them. The NL East is tight as well with all five teams still vying for the title. When the races get this close there's usually one determining factor that decides it all... Who's going to go on a hot streak. It's all about the second half surge as we journey on past the All-Star game. It's the teams that can reel off seven or eight straight wins who will take the crown, and the teams that lose seven or eight straight who will be on the outside looking in.
