And Down the Stretch Comes the dust storm! … Jays and O’s holding onto win and place, but losing ground …. Tigers holding at 3rd, but also losing pace on a wet spot …. as Astros burst through a hole on the rail to pull nose-to-nose with the Ausmus jockey horse …. M’s and Yanks find the same rail seam to also close the gap on the two big leaders at the 5 and 6 spots …. as the champion Royals slip further out of serious chances at the 7 hole.
