Two extra sets of checkered jerseys were passed out last night as the Dodgers caught the Reds for the NL Wild card spot at 57-55, while the Red Sox caught up to the White Sox by simpling watching Chicago lose at home to the Angels. The Red/White Sox are 65-45.
Minnesota had a chance to take over the wild card lead, but lost in Detroit, 9-3. The Twins could take over the spot if they can beat the Tigers in Detroit (4:05 pm PT Brad Radke vs. Nate Robertson) and if the Red Sox lose in Kansas City (5:10 pm PT John Lester vs. Luke Hudson) and the White Sox lose at home to the Yankees (5:05 pm PT Chien-Ming Wang vs. Freddy Garcia).
In the NL, the Dodgers and Reds, as well as the Diamondbacks could all be tied for the wild card at the end of the day.
The Reds host the Cardinals (4:10 pm PT Jason Marquis vs. Eric Milton), the Diamondbacks host the Giants (6:40 pm PT Jamey Wright vs. Juan Cruz), and the Dodgers host the Rockies (7:10 pm PT Greg Maddux vs. Byung-Hyun Kim). The Diamondbacks are a game behind the Reds and Dodgers.
