On The Board
Chicago Cubs / White Sox
The two representatives of Chicago are the first to reach 15 wins this season and are leaders of the Central Division of both leagues. In 1917, these two teams were also the first to get that amount of wins in each league, ending the season with the White Sox as World Series champions.
The last time the Cubs won 15 of their first 20 games (16-4), they were crowned champs, in the 1907 Fall Classic.
Extra: Robinson Cano (Seattle Mariners) launched his tenth grand slam and passed the thousand RBI in his career. He is ranked second among second baseman with the most home runs with the bases loaded and is the fifth fastest at that position to reach that number of RBI (1,707 games).
