, so two playoff spots remain.The NL West winner (either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Colorado Rockies) will take one, while the St. Louis Cardinals or the NL West runner-up will grab the other.Here's a look at the latest NL standings and playoff picture, with a deeper look at the best-case scenarios for the six teams still alive.All tiebreakerand standings information was obtained via MLB.com. Baseball-Reference is the source for all season-series figures. National League Wild-Card StandingsMilwaukee Brewers: 92-67Los Angeles Dodgers: 88-71St. Louis Cardinals: 87-72 National League EastStandingsAtlanta Braves: 89-69Washington Nationals: 81-78Philadelphia Phillies: 78-80New York Mets: 74-84Miami Marlins: 62-96National League CentralStandingsChicago Cubs: 92-66Milwaukee Brewers: 92-67St. Louis Cardinals: 87-72Pittsburgh Pirates: 80-77Cincinnati Reds: 66-93 National League WestStandingsColorado Rockies: 88-70Los Angeles Dodgers: 88-71Arizona Diamondbacks: 81-78San Francisco Giants: 73-86San Diego Padres: 64-95Best Case-ScenariosChicago Cubs (92-66): No. 1 SeedThe Chicago Cubs have the simplest path to the No. 1 seed: If they win out, they get it. The Cubs have one fewer loss than the next-best team (the Milwaukee Brewers) and control their own destiny.Other scenarios exist, however, including going 2-2 (which would bump the Braves out of the No. 1 seed conversation) and simultaneously finishing ahead of Milwaukee in the standings Brewers would need to go no better than 1-2 in that scenario.Chicago hosts the Pittsburgh Pirates once and St. Louis three times before the playoffs begin. The highlight of that four-game stretch is a potential pitcher's duel between the Cubs' Cole Hamels and the St. Louis Cardinals' Miles Mikolas on Saturday.Milwaukee Brewers (92-67): No. 1 SeedIf the Brewers finish with a better record than the Cubs, then they will be the No. 1 seed and have home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs. Milwaukee has the season-series tiebreaker over the Braves, so one more win guarantees the Brewers placement over them in the NL bracket if they win the division.Of note, if the Cubs and Brewers tie for the division crown, Chicago would host a one-game playoff at Wrigley Field Monday to determine the champion (and more-than-likely No. 1 seed). The Cubs would get that reward by virtue of their11-8season-series edge over Milwaukee.Milwaukee has the easiest road left out of any NL team, as it faces the 64-94 Detroit Tigers at home to close the year. The Brewers, who have won four straight دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, are 48-30 in Miller Park this year, while Detroit is 26-51 away from Comerica Park.Atlanta Braves (89-69): No. 1 SeedThe Atlanta Braves can still finish with the No. 1 seed, but it won't be easy.The simplest scenario is if the Braves win out and the Cubs and Brewers lose out, giving Atlanta a 93-69 record alone atop the NL.A more complicated scenario involves the Cubs winning the NL Central and simultaneously finishing with the NL's best record alongside the Braves (at 92-70 or 93-69). In that case, Atlanta gets the edge thanks to the second tiebreaker (intra-division record).The teams split their season series, so the first tiebreaker would not work here. Atlanta already has that edge (48-24 vs. the Cubs' 38-34).Atlanta has a road tilt with the New York Mets before three more away games vs. the Philadelphia Phillies. The Braves' toughest test may be Friday when Phils ace and Cy Young candidate Aaron Nola takes the hill. Colorado Rockies (88-70): No. 1 SeedThe Colorado Rockies, who have won six straight, now control their own destiny for the NL West crown. If they win out, the Brewers and Cubs lose out and Atlanta loses at least one game, then the Rockies would be the No. 1 seed only if Chicago beats Milwaukee in the one-game NL Central division playoff.The Rockies have a 5-2 season-series edge over Atlanta in a tiebreaker scenario.Colorado has the tiebreaker over Chicago (the two tied the season series at three, but the Rockies would have the better intradivision record in this case). But Milwaukee beat the Rockies five times in seven tries, so the Brew Crew would stay ahead of them.The Rockies finish their season with a home game against the Phillies and a three-game set versus the Washington Nationals. They avoid Nola دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, but it's unclear whether they would face Nats ace Max Scherzer on the other side. Scherzer could hypothetically pitch Sunday against the Rockies on regular rest, but no starter has been announced. Los Angeles Dodgers (88-71): No. 2 SeedWith their loss to old friend Zach Greinke and the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers mathematically fell out of the No. 1 seed running. They can still get the No. 2 seed if they (a) win the National League West and (b) finish with the same (or better) record than the Atlanta Braves.L.A. beat Atlanta 5-2 in the season series, giving the Dodgers the tiebreaker there.The Dodgers don't have an easy road, however, as they travel to San Francisco and face the rival Giants to close the season. L.A. will have ace Clayton Kershaw on the bump Saturday, but the Giants have No. 1 starter Madison Bumgarner going Friday. St. Louis Cardinals (87-72): Second Wild CardThe St. Louis Cardinals, who are in the midst of a 3-7 slide, do not control their own destiny as they sit one game behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for the final wild-card spot.If the Redbirds pass the Dodgers (or Rockies) in the standings, they will head to Chicago or Milwaukee for the NL Wild Card Game.If the Cards tie either L.A. or Colorado, they will host a one-game playoff against the NL West runner-up, with the winner heading to the NL Wild Card Game as the road team versus the NL Central's second-place finisher. St. Louis would have the home edge thanks to season-series wins vs. both NL West teams.St. Louis finishes its season with a three-game road series against the Cubs.

, Miles Mikolas and Jack Flaherty will go against Kyle Hendricks, Cole Hamels and Mike Montgomery, respectively. TORONTO — The Tampa Bay Rays and the Toronto Blue Jays are going to see a lot of each other in September, starting Monday night at the Rogers Centre.If it seems like the Rays and the Jays were playing at the Rogers Centre only a short time ago, it is because they were.It was only three weeks ago when the Rays won two games from the Blue Jays in a three-game series Aug. 10-12.Article continues below ...Through a scheduling quirk, they will be back at it again starting Monday with a three-game series as Toronto’s Marcus Stroman (4-8, 5.27 ERA) will come off the disabled list (right middle finger blister) to start for the first time since Aug. 17. The Rays had not named their starter for Monday night.And if Toronto fans have not seen enough of the Rays, the teams will be playing again in a four-game series Sept. 20-23. Then the teams will return to St. Petersburg, Fla., for a three-game series Sept. 28-30 at Tropicana Field that will complete the season.Not that everything is the same with the teams. The Blue Jays, for instance, made two trades on Friday.

, who has been injured for most of the season, to the Cleveland Indians and outfielder Curtis Granderson to the Milwaukee Brewers. Those teams have postseason aspirations and the Blue Jays are rebuilding, or transitioning.Both teams are coming off victories.The Blue Jays (62-74) enter the series against the Rays after a 6-1 victory Sunday over the Miami Marlins to complete a 2-4 road trip that included being swept in a three-game series by the Baltimore Orioles.The Rays (73-63) defeated the Indians 6-4 on Sunday in the rubber match of a three-game series at Progressive Field. They have won 11 of their past 13 games to go a season-best 10 games above .500.Stroman allowed five runs in four innings at Yankee Stadium before going on the DL with a blister problem that has been hampering him for quite some time.His previous start, on Aug. 12, was the only one he has made against the Rays this season. He allowed one run and five hits in five innings in a no-decision, a game the Blue Jays won 2-1.In 12 career starts against the Rays, Stroman is 5-4 with a 4.20 ERA.In a rubber match with the Miami Marlins on Sunday, Sean Reid-Foley struck out 10 in a seven-inning outing for his first win in his third major league start. He is the first Blue Jays starter to pitch seven innings since Aug. 22.Starting pitching has been a weak spot for the Blue Jays lately and has been a disappointment most of the season.“Our starting pitching has been getting hit around pretty good the past 10 days or so and gets us behind the eight ball,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after a loss on Saturday. “Hopefully, we can get that ironed out. We need to get that taken care of.”Smoak, who entered the game Sunday in the bottom of the ninth as a defensive replacement, has hit home runs in each of the past four games that he has had a plate appearance.

, who started at first base Sunday, recently cot completed a seven-game home run streak.The Rays made a move before their game Sunday, recalling infielder-outfielder Andrew Velazquez from Triple-A Durham. Right-hander Jose Mujica (undisclosed injury) was recalled from Durham and was moved to the 60-day DL.With regular center fielder Kevin Kiermaier sitting out Sunday after leaving the game Saturday in the seventh inning with back spasms, Velazquez entered the game Sunday in the eighth inning as a defensive replacement in center field.Kiermaier said he was available off the bench Sunday and hopes to return to the lineup on Monday.Rays outfielder Mallex Smith (viral infection) is expected to be activated from the DL when eligible on Monday.Tampa Bay first baseman-outfielder Jake Bauers was 0-for-3 with a walk Sunday and is 4-for-58 since Aug. 10.“This isn’t the worst thing for him,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “He’s 22. He’s going to be fine. I know he’s scuffling. To be able to get to the offseason, we want to see him get there on a high note.“But at the same time, if he’s able to do that, he’s going to look back and say, ‘Hey, I had maybe the roughest patch of my career and I was able to kind of weather the storm.’“I think that means something, especially to some young guys. I don’t think it would be smart for us to run from him. He’s part of our future.”
