Despite winning at Kansas City tonight by a score of 11-8, the Seattle Mariners became the seventh team overall to be eliminated from playoff contention. The elimination was complete after the Angels beat the Rangers 2-1 in Texas and then Oakland defeated Chicago at home 4-2.
Seattle's maximum win total would be 85. Oakland has 84 and the Angels have 80. Since those two teams play each other seven times, one of them will finish with at least 86 wins.
