MLB Wild Card Standings – Sept. 19
The wild card run in both leagues is nearly as close as possible. Let’s take a look at the American League and the National League, respectively.
In the American League, the Red Sox and Blue Jays have a narrow lead over the Yankees. New York is losing at a rapid pace, falling in its two games to the Cleveland Indians on Saturday and Sunday. The Blue Jays took home two wins over the Minnesota Twins, giving them an advantage over New York.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox hold a two-game lead over the Blue Jays for the No. 1 wild-card spot, which determines home-field advantage in wild-card play.
In the National League, the Dodgers dominate the No. 1 wild-card spot, with a 16.5-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals. They will host the wild card game.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals have a 3.5 game lead over the San Diego Padres (who they are ironically playing this weekend against) and the Cincinnati Reds. Closing in on the Atlanta Braves in the NL East (1 game behind), the Phillies are just a few games back in the Wild Card, while the Mets’ chances are fading as they face a six deficit. games.
