The Atlanta Braves beat the Tampa Bay Race, which ran for 13 consecutive wins in the opening, and rose to No. 1 in the power rankings.
MLB.com placed Atlanta at number one in the power rankings released on the 18th (Korean time).
Atlanta faced the Cincinnati Reds and Kansas City Royals last week and went 6-0 without losing once.
The media pointed out the reason for Atlanta’s promotion, saying, “Sean Murphy, Matt Olsen, and Ronald Acuna Jr. are recording OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of more than 1.000.”
Tampa Bay, who took first place in the power rankings last week with an opening winning streak, fell one notch to the second place.먹튀검증
