Manny Machado just went deep for his 37th bomb of the season. That's two more than the career-high he set last year. The homer snaps an 0-for-17 skid for Machado, and gives Baltimore a 3-0 lead over New York in the third.

Christian Vazquez might actually be frontrunner to be Red Sox's No. 2 catcher in Division Series. John Farrell says Sox focused on stopping Indians' running game.

Terry Collins said Noah Syndergaard, who will start the wild-card game, may not face the Phillies on Sunday. He may just have a bullpen session instead. Yoenis Cespedes and Asdrubal Cabrera will be off Sunday.

The Cardinals came back from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Pirates 4-3 Saturday to keep their postseason hopes alive. Matt Holliday, whose season was supposed to be over, had a clutch pinch-hit RBI single and Jedd Gyorko hit the go-ahead home run, his 30th of the season, in the eighth. The Cardinals could finish the day tied with the Giants for the second wild card.

Accuweather says the rain should hold off for today's Orioles/Yankees game. That's a win for both teams. Unfortunately, the win won't count in the standings, where the O's need a W (plus an L by either Toronto or Detroit) to clinch a wild card berth.

The Mets did it; they're in the playoffs. Amazing. Only one spot left, for the Giants or Cardinals.

Uncork the champagne. The reigning National League champs are returning to the postseason. And this berth may be more of an accomplishment than a year ago, even though it comes via a wild card rather than division crown. Decimated by injuries, the Mets nonetheless clinched a wild-card berth Saturday with a 5-3 win against the Phillies. The Mets (87-74) will host the Giants or Cardinals on Wednesday. It marks the second time in franchise history the Mets will appear in the postseason in consecutive years. They earned consecutive wild-card berths in 1999 and 2000.

Mets are three outs away from clinching a playoff berth, after overcoming a tidal wave of injuries to their rotation.

For those who missed it yesterday, Big Papi sign outside Gate D at Fenway Park.

Before today's game in St. Louis, Matt Holliday told reporters from MLB.com and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he would prefer Friday night's home run be his final at-bat of the season. It wasn't. Mike Matheny asked him to hit with runners at the corners and one out Saturday and... Holliday came up with another big hit. His single to right off Juan Nicasio scored Brandon Moss and moved Randal Grichuk to third. Grichuk scored on Matt Carpenter's sacrifice fly to tie it 3-3. A loss could eliminate the Cardinals from postseason play.
