For the fourth straight day, the Padres, Reds, and Diamondbacks all have the chance to end up with the same record. If San Diego loses at home to Washington, while Cincinnati defeats Atlanta at home and Arizona beats Houston in Phoenix, then all three teams will have 56-53 records.
Despite losing seven straight, the Cardinals still lead the Reds in the Central by 3 1/2 games.
In the AL, the Yankees have pulled ahead of the Red Sox by a game. If the Yankees were to lose at Baltimore while Boston wins at Tampa Bay, then the Yankees lead would go back down to .002.
If the Red Sox lose and the White Sox win at Toronto, the White Sox would move ahead in the wild card race by a half game.
And in hitting streak action, the Phillies and Chase Utley will be in Flushing to take on the Mets. Utley's streak is at 35 games. Orlando Hernandez will be starting for the Mets. Utley is 1 for 2 against him in his career.
