Statistical Leaders;

The Kansas City Sharks' Earl Coulson's bid to win the Triple Crown in the American League is under going some stiff competition at the moment. Coulson has dropped into a tie with Mickey Godwin of Baltimore in the homerun derby with 13. Seattle's Jim Naymick has hit.344 over his last ten games and taking the lead .370 to .358 over Coulson. Coulson still leads in runs batted in with 38 but Jim Naymick and Don Marquez now have 33 and trail by five.

Bobby Sheldon won his eighth straight decision this season and is a league best 8-0. His 2.29 ERA trails teammate Steve Black's 1.62 by a considerable margin and Sheldon took over the strikeout lead with 90 after Fred Meinert (Baltimore) only struck out five in his outing to reach 84. Sheldon has 81 and Black 74.

Kansas City split its first two games with Baltimore to go 30-20 (600) and lead hard charging Seattle (28-22 .560) by two games.

Washington stopped it thirteen game skid with a 10-1 shellacking of Minnesota.

Detroit's four game slide now tops the league as the longest. Chicago's three wins in a row is the longest winning streak in the league.

Seattle has clawed its way up from the celler in the early part of the season to second place two games out of first place. The team's success have been based highly on its offensive production.
