Pennant Watch: Saturday, September 30

New York Pulls Ahead
The Yankees won, while the Tigers and Twins (tied for the AL Central lead) both lost, giving New York a two-game lead for home field with two games to play. Home field looks safe for the bronx bombers.

Cardinals Regain Life
Given an opening with Houston's loss in Atlanta, the Cardinals took advantage, beating up on the Brewers to earn a 10-5 win. St. Louis should be a lock for the playoffs now, as the only way Houston can make up the 1.5 game deficit is by winning their last two, and hoping St. Louis drops their last two.

The Wild Wild West
Los Angeles rallied in the 9th to beat San Francisco, which, coupled with San Diego's loss to Arizona, puts the Dodgers in a tie for first in the west with the Padres. Philly won to stay 2 back of the wild card, keeping their slim playoff hopes alive.

Game of the Day
Houston at Atlanta and Philadelphia at Florida. Both of these teams need a win and lots of help or else their playoff push will end today.
