Here we go….Starting tonight, there is a season 7 games for Interleague in the next two days, and are several more game lists on the docket for the next 15 days (46 Games in all)..

Highlighted by tonight’s LA Series, the Battle of Ohio, the 2013 World Series, and MLB Trade Deadline dance partners BOS @ STL.

Yes, there also duds on the itinerary, as I am sure there are not too many people pining for a Astros @ Phillies series, or a Padres @ Twins, or even the Royals in the desert to take on the D’Backs,

The one other set of games to pique one’s interest is the Braves stumbling into Safeco Field on a 6 game losing streak – and having the daunting task to face Felix Hernandez this evening. 

Good luck fella’s, a high strikeout team, facing the best AL Pitcher, (which is a rarity), and in one of the worst hitting ballparks with Seattle. This could be an ugly night.

The fans could not need air conditioning with the amount of wind generated by bats missing balls.

Los Angeles vs Los Angeles of Orange County/Disneyland.Santa Ana, or whatever they are calling themselves is a pivotal stretch of contests. 

The Halos are currently trailing the A’s by one game in the AL West, while the Dodger Blue has a 1.5 Games lead on San Francisco.

The Angels took game of the series 5 – 0 last night.  In by doing, gave the ‘Junior Circuit’ a 118 – 95 (.554) advantage for the year  over the Senior Circuit – and stretched the lifetime lead to 2308  to 2083 (.526).

Here at the Reports we have a column on the home page, and also a dedicated page labeled Interleague 2014

Some teams will need their Interleague to qualify for the postseason this year, and the American League has been beating up on the NL for 10 years consecutive. 

The AL also leads the season wins series 13 – 4, and are pretty much a look to nail down another campaign this season, leading by 23 wins heading into tonight.

The NL took an early 26 – 17 lead in May, but all of us here pointed out it was a lot of high talented National League Teams speedbagging on some of the teams struggling in the American League early on.

Since that time frame, the AL has rambled off a record of 101 –  69, for a win percentage of (.594) .

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at http://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
