GIG-2020 Round 10

Gents, my apologies for not having tallied the scores for Round 8 yet.  I went on vacation, got started with a few things, and plum forgot.  However, the wife and I recently moved to a new home, and I haven't setup the desktop (where the database is), so I can't yet tally those scores.  I'll do it as soon as I can.  Also, the GIG questions this round will be confined to only having the web reports to create questions from. Sorry if it's a little vanilla, but I'll do my best.

Shout out to Rod with some cool, creative questions for Round 9.  I'll be stealing some of his ideas - as well as Brent's from a few rounds ago. And as always, I'd love for anyone else to jump in and do some questions for a round.  Maybe next season?

Let's get to Round 10, which is the normal 13 games.  Round 11 will be 17 games, and the final GIG before we do questions for the first round of the postseason. 

1) Let's just get my self-promotion out of the way early... The Miners and Blues are deadlocked (finally!) with 30 games left in the season.  And let's go ahead and include the Kraken in this question, because they have the same W/L record (81-51).  Which team will have the best record (between the 3 teams) at the end of Round 10? (2 points, ties count)

2) The ACLs have topped 100 wins (101).  Yes, after just 132 games, they have 101 wins.  Unbelievable season. Their run differential is a whopping 429.  Their magic number is 2.  Three of the 5 current starting pitchers are in the Top FOUR in ERA.  And all 5 starters are in the Top TEN in wins.  They have a 29-game lead over the Rougarou, who have every incentive in the world to achieve that first Wild Card spot so they can avoid the ACLs in the first round. 
Question: The over/under on the number of games back the Rougarou will be is 31.5.  Pick the over, or the under. 2 points.

3) Home Run watch!  Pete Alonso already has 50, and Trout is right behind him with 48. Both had full real life seasons, so no need to worry if they'll be benched, I assume.
Question: Which player will lead the league in HRs at the end of round 10?
Alonso = 2 points
Trout = 4 points
The field (3rd place currently is Sano at 43) = 10 points, but -2 if you're wrong.

4) Pretty good battle going on in the Hits department between Jeff McNeil (187) and Ketel Marte (182). They've been going back and forth at the top all year long.
Question: Which player will lead the league at the end of Round 10?
McNeil = 2 points
Marte = 4 points
The field (3rd place is LaMaheiu at 173) = 10 points, but -2 if you're wrong.

5) In the interest of looking forward to possible World Series matchups, you might be surprised to know the ACLs do NOT hold the best record in inter-league play.  That belongs to the Miners (30-10), followed by the ACLs (29-10), and the Kraken (28-10). All other teams are at least 6 games behind, but I'll let you take "the field" again if you truly wish to live on that ledge.
Question: Which team will have the most inter-league wins (not winning percentage) at the end of Round 10? I strongly encourage you to look at the schedules of all 3 teams since - remember - I don't have access to the database right now.  This may end up being the biggest no-brainer depending on what the schedule is.  LOL
Miners = 2 points
ACLS = 3 points
Kraken = 4 points
The field = 10 points, but -2 if you're wrong.

Good luck!
