Major league baseball is nearing its midway point, and eight different Trojans made an impact in the first half led by Oakland A's starting pitcher Tommy Milone (pictured).  The southpaw has been on fire for the American League's best team going 6-0 in his last 10 starts.

The 27-year-old is in his third full major league season in Oakland after being traded to the A's in 2012 by the Washington Nationals, the team that drafted him in 2008.  He is headed towards his third double-digit win campaign in the Bay earning the label of "Mr. Reliable" in the Oakland rotation.
