Giants somehow still in the mix

San Francisco has won one series in the entire month of September and hasn't won a series at home since Aug. 26-28. But if the wild-card game was today, the Giants would still be in it. To lock things up, they have to get a few more wins this week. Baseball's final week madness

Cardinals' wild-card chances take a hit

A 15-2 rout at the hands of the Reds was the last thing the Cards needed on Monday. Now they are a full game behind the Giants for the second wild card. The Mets also lost, but that didn't seem so important during an emotional night in Miami.

Giants suffer Sunday's biggest loss

The bullpen let the Giants down in their 4-3 loss to the Padres, but the offense shouldn't be let off the hook, either. The Giants have hit just .220/.287/.326 in September and rank last in the majors in several key categories. Schoenfield: Daily wild-card watch (Insider)
