News: Cruz had a massive game Sunday against the Rays, going 4-for-5 with two homers and driving in all seven of the Orioles' runs in the team's 11-inning victory. Impact: Cruz leads the league with 39 home runs, with his two-run shot in the top of the 11th proving to be the difference maker in the contest. Though Cruz's batting average has been on a steady decline from its peak mark of .319 in early June, his ability to stay healthy this season has allowed him to churn out the best power numbers of his career in his age-34 campaign. With Chris Davis noticing close to a 300-point downgrade in his OPS this season, the February signing of Cruz has looked like an especially shrewd move by the Orioles.(RotoWire, )
