Baseball's playoff scenarios with two days left in the regular season:
AL EAST
The New York Yankees, who beat Boston 10-2 on Monday night, took a one-game lead over the Orioles, who lost 5-3 at Tampa Bay. Both teams have clinched a postseason berth. If they tie for the division title, they would play a tiebreaker Thursday in Baltimore. The loser would play in the wild-card game Friday, needing a win to advance.
AL CENTRAL
Detroit beat Kansas City 6-3 to win the division crown for the second straight season. The White Sox, despite an 11-0 victory over Cleveland, were eliminated from postseason contention when the Tigers won.
AL WEST
Texas, which has clinched a playoff berth, held a two-game lead over the Athletics going into their game in Oakland late Monday night. The A's held a two-game lead over the Angels for the second wild card. Los Angeles played at Seattle.
NL EAST
Washington, despite a 2-0 loss to Philadelphia, clinched the division title - its first since moving from Montreal in 2005 - thanks to Atlanta's 2-1 loss at Pittsburgh. The Braves have already wrapped up a playoff berth and will host the NL wild-card game Friday.
NL CENTRAL
St. Louis, the defending World Series champion, beat Cincinnati 4-2 to clinch at least a tie for the second wild card. A loss by the Dodgers, who hosted San Francisco in a late game, or another Cardinals win would lock up a playoff berth for St. Louis.
Cincinnati has already clinched the division title and is tied with Washington for the best record in the National League. The Reds must finish with a better mark than the Nationals to earn home-field advantage throughout the postseason because Washington won the season series.
NL WEST
San Francisco has already clinched the division and Los Angeles, which was playing the Giants late Monday night, needed a win to stay alive in the wild-card race.
