The hunt to play baseball in October is heating up.
A handful of MLB division races could come down to the wire, and each wild-card spot is still up for grabs.
Here’s where the playoff race stands in both leagues through Wednesday afternoon.
The New York Mets (95-56) and Atlanta Braves (93-56) are in a slugfest for the NL East, with New York a game ahead of Atlanta. Both teams have clinched playoff berths, but neither has secured the division. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Phillies (80-67) are third in the NL wild-card picture.
The St. Louis Cardinals (87-62) have been one of the hottest teams since the All-Star break and subsequently powered themselves to the top of the NL Central. On the other hand, the Milwaukee Brewers (79-70) are eight games out of first in the division and two games out of the wild card.
