For the first time since early May, there is a new team at the top of the TSN.ca MLB Power Rankings.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been battling the St .Louis Cardinals for the top spot in the National League Central and after winning four of five against the Cardinals (as well as the Cardinals losing catcher Yadier Molina to a knee injury), the Pirates finally captured the prime ranking position.

There are some teams riding impressive stretches right now. The Detroit Tigers have won 13 of 14, but still sit second, just behind the Pirates.

The Atlanta Braves are on an 11-game winning streak and jumped from 13 to seven and the Kansas City Royals moved from 18 to 13 after winning 12 of their last 13 games.

Heading the other way, the New York Yankees are 6-10 since the All-Star break and even the return of Alex Rodriguez couldn't save them from sliding to a season-low 15 from 11. 

The Toronto Blue Jays continue to languish in the lower third, though up one spot from 22 to 21, overtaking the sinking Philadelphia Phillies in the process.
