The Phillies currently have the game well in hand, leading 5-1 in the 6th, so I'm going to just assume that the very unlikely event of the Astros scoring four runs won't occur. With this in mind, here are the possible outcomes of today's game:

Dodgers win: Dodgers move 1.5 games ahead of the Padres. The Phillies remain two back.

Padres win: The Dodgers fall .5 games behind the Padres. The Phillies close to one back.

I'm watching the Phillies-Astros game right now, and they just pointed out the Houston Rally Monkey. Was an easily exciteable primate such a good idea that the Astros had to copy it?

The Dodgers magic number over the Phillies is 13.

Update: 5-3 Astros. Maybe miracles can happen.
Update: Apparently not. Phillies win 6-4.
