Chris Davis finished off the first half of the season in grand style on Sunday as he went 2-for-4 with his 37th homer and four RBI in the Orioles 7-4 win over the Blue Jays. Davis tied Reggie Jackson's record for most homers at the All-Star break in AL history, a record Jackson set in 1969. Davis also doubled and scored two runs on Sunday. Its doubtful that his owners even noticed, but Davis has struggled in July as he had a .171 batting average entering Sunday's game. He leads the American League in homers and is second in RBI and runs. Davis is on pace to post ridiculous offensive numbers this season and 60 or more home runs is certainly realistic for him.
Madison Bumgarner earned his 10th victory on Thursday night as he gave up just two runs over seven innings in a 4-2 win over the Padres. Bumgarner held the Padres to four hits while striking out six. He retired 20 out of the final 21 batters he faced and he has gone at least seven innings in each of his last six starts. Bumgarner will take a 3.02 ERA into the All-Star break. Bumgarner has been the exact opposite of Matt Cain during the first half as Cain has disappointed fantasy owners and Bumgarner has been really good. The Giants just wrapped up a disastrous home stand and have three games left in San Diego before the break. As they look to rebound in the second half, Bumgarner will have to continue to pitch the way he has so far this season.
