2021 MLB Weekly Recap, Power Rankings (August 30)


The final full week of August was headlined by late-week controversy involving players versus fans versus front office. Also, there’s a new No. 1 in the power rankings after the Rays’ seven-game winning streak.

 

More issues for the Mets: Players begin giving thumbs down to fans. Team President Sandy Alderson backed the fans.

 

 

 

The Yankees won 13 consecutive games, their longest winning streak since 1961.

 

 

Rays star rookie Wander Franco has reached base safely in 29 consecutive games. It is the longest streak in AL history for a player under 21 years old, behind only Mickey Mantle.

 

 

 

The Brewers doubled the Modern Era record for games with 16+ strikeouts and no walks in a season.

 

 

Total bomb: Twins slugger Miguel Sano hit the longest home run of the season at 495 feet.
