RISING Jose Abreu, DH/1B: After finally ending his home run drought Saturday, Abreu hit another Sunday giving him home runs in back to back games for the fourth time this season and first time since early June. He has a hit in 22 of the last 23 games and is batting .427 over that stretch with 12 RBIs and 11 multi-hit games. Starting pitching: Scott Carroll and Hector Noesi might have ended the starting staff's run of consecutive quality starts at eight, but the current run from the rotation continues to be impressive.
