Los Angeles Teams

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Do the Dodgers have a bullpen problem heading into the postseason? Through July, the pen had a 2.83 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Since then, it owns a 4.90 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. Kenley Jansen and Brandon Morrow seem like the only reliable relievers of late, but haven't pitched much as the Dodgers have lost 20 of their past 25 games.

Rangers back in the hunt?

The Twins' chances for the second wild-card spot went down slightly after being swept by the Yankees. Combined with a loss by the Angels, the door is now open for the Rangers, who saw their chances nearly double. The Royals aren't out of it just yet either.

The Dodgers had a chance to clinch the NL West on Wednesday, but instead suffered a third straight loss to the lowly Phillies, who will go for the series sweep on Thursday. The Dodgers are 5-20 over their past 25 games and their magic number remains at two. The Red Sox did clinch at least a wild-card spot with their win and the Angels' loss. Other magic numbers: Red Sox: 8 (to win AL East) Cubs: 8 (to win NL Central) Yankees: 3 (to clinch wild card) Diamondbacks: 4 (to clinch wild card)
