How are the Tampa Bay Rays near first place?

How are the Cleveland Indians five games under .500?

I cannot recall a worse hitting team. How many near perfect or no hit games have they shown fans in the past week? It’s embarrassing and very frustrating or boring to watch. They simply cannot hit major league pitching.
