Brandon Crawford went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and four RBI on Sunday in the Giants' lopsided win over the Phillies. Crawford's remarkable renaissance campaign continued on Sunday afternoon as he blasted his 16th round-tripper of the season off righty Zach Eflin in the third inning and came just inches from his second homer of the contest, settling for a two-run double off the very top of the center-field wall against righty reliever David Hale in the eighth inning. The 34-year-old veteran shortstop owns a solid .249/.336/.537 triple-slash line with 39 runs scored, 16 homers, 48 RBI and five steals across 235 plate appearances.

Shohei Ohtani clobbered his major league-leading 23rd home run of the season on Sunday in the Angels' loss to the Tigers in extra-innings. Ohtani connected on an 84 mph splitter from righty Casey Mize, launching a majestic 414-foot two-run homer to center field in the fifth inning. The electrifying 26-year-old two-way sensation has gone deep in three consecutive games and eight times over 17 games since June 1. We've simply run out of superlatives to accurately describe what we've witnessed so far this season. He's emerged as the clear front-runner for the American League's MVP Award, slashing .272/.357/.649 with 48 runs scored, 23 homers, 54 RBI and 10 stolen bases across 272 plate appearances. Unreal.
