Commentary: Offense continues to stabilize in the AL-East, with the latter three teams holding ground. New York stays at second behind the balanced Detroit offense, but it now ties with the upcoming Cleveland team. Boston’s offense lags, however, the only real change, falling to sixth in the American League.
