American League Domination Continues in Interleague Play

Going into the day today the NL was down to the AL by 10 games in interleague play.  As I write this, the leagues are 5-5 but the AL leads all four games in progress.

I'm a big fan of the NL, having grown up with it as a Cub fan.  I think the DH takes a lot of strategy out of the game.  Logic dictates that the NL should have a distinct advantage in interleague play because AL pitchers who normally don't bat are forced to during road games.  And yet the AL always seeems to dominate.

I suppose as a Cub fan I should be happy to see Cub rivals largely losing.  And yet as a fan of NL baseball in all the revelry of a great Cubs season I find mself yet again somewhat disheartened at the overall performance of the NL.

What exactly is going on here?
