With a little more than a month to go in the regular season, the Los Angeles Angels, Chicago Cubs and Tampa Bay Rays are dominating the MLB standings. Both the Cubbies and the Rays have an excellent home game record, winning 45 of 62 home games. The Rays have not lost a series since the All-Star break, though Oakland threatens to end that streak tonight, as the series is tied 1-1. The Cubs are on a hot streak, winning three straight games heading into the final game of their series versus the Atlanta Braves.
The Angels, on the other hand, are doing just fine on the road, winning 38 of 59 games (the best away record in the league). Though the Angels lost the series closer versus Seattle at home, they are on the road again tonight to play the Indians on Friday. Considering their away record is dominant – and Cleveland is struggling for a win - you can bet the series is going to be cake for the Angels.
The Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers are not far behind in the standings, so watch out for these future series where anything can happen:
