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.
