Nationals clinch wild-card berth with double-header sweep

MLB: Game Two-Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Nationals clinched a wild-card berth after sweeping a double-header and the Cubs continuing to lose games. The Cardinals played more innings than the Nationals in one game in their 19-inning walk-off loss to the Diamondbacks. That meant the Cardinals cannot celebrate a division win in Phoenix, their celebration, if any will have to take place at home.

Any possible postseason clinching?

The Twins can clinch the AL Central with a win and an Indians’ loss. The Brewers can clinch a postseason berth with a win or losses from both the Cubs and Mets.

Tiebreaker and home-field advantage status

The Dodgers clinched home-field advantage throughout the National League postseason.

The Braves will also have home-field advantage against the winner of the NL Central division.

The Astros and Yankees have both clinched home-field advantage in their respective Divisional Series.
