No one has clinched a spot and no one was eliminated. But there is a tie for the NL Wild Card now. Some teams have moved to the critical list. Cleaned up the entry a bit and made Detroit's lifespan shorter.
White Sox, Twins (AL Central) - 13 (White Sox sweep while Twins lose)
Rays (AL East) - 14 (Rays lose and Red Sox win, Rays have magic number of 8 to make the playoffs)
Wild card leaders
Red Sox - 8 (Red Sox win and Twins lose)
Brewers, Phillies - 13 (Brewers swept by Phillies to force tie. If the Phillies and Mets tie for the NL East and both would make the playoffs, the Mets would win the division and the Phillies would be the wild card.)
Detroit will be eliminated with a loss to Texas or a win by Minnesota. Cleveland will be eliminated will be eliminated with a loss to Minnesota.
There's No Place Like Home
The Angels will clinch home field advantage throughout the postseason with a combination of wins and losses by Tampa Bay that adds up to 12. Tampa Bay would get home field against the Angels in case they finish with the same record. The team with the best record in the AL will get the option of picking which Division Series schedule to follow, one of which will start on October 1 and the other on October 2.
