Can Mariners make wild card? They are 2 back with 3 games left. Only the 1962 Giants, 1999 Mets and 2007 Rockies reached the postseason when 2 back with 3 or fewer games remaining.

Hunt for October: Where things stand

The Mariners trail the Blue Jays and Orioles by two games in the wild-card race (the Mariners hold the tiebreaker over the Orioles but split the season series with the Blue Jays; the tiebreaker would come down to better intradivision record, which is still undetermined). What's at stake this weekend

AL wild-card picture getting clearer

The Orioles took two of three from the Blue Jays to draw even in the AL wild-card race, which -- barring a collapse -- looks like it'll be a showdown between Baltimore and Toronto. Standings


Zunino's HR spurs Seattle past A's 3-2

Mike Zunino delivered the go-ahead home run in the seventh inning and Seattle held on for a 3-2 victory over the Athletics on Thursday night, keeping the M's on the edge of the AL wild-card hunt.

The odds may not be great but it's not over yet. The Mariners beat Oakland 3-2 to stay two games behind Baltimore and Toronto in the wild card race with three games to play. Jays and O's also playing tough opponents (Red Sox and Yankees) while Seattle playing Oakland.

Jim Caple ESPN Senior Writer 

Mariners tied 1-1 with Oakland in sixth inning of pretty much a must-win game. After Baltimore beat Toronto, Seattle is currently down 2 1/2 games in wild card race and a loss tonight would mean they would have to go 3-0 and hope Blue Jays or O's go 0-3 rest of way to tie. Oh, and Tigers would have to lose some as well.
