What's ahead for NL wild-card teams?

Every game matters for the Mets, Giants and Cardinals, who are all still tightly packed together in the standings. On paper, the Mets might have it easiest by ending their season against the struggling Phillies.

Stats & Info

Time running out on Cardinals?

Although St. Louis won on Tuesday, so did New York and San Francisco, meaning the Cards' playoff chances look bleaker as the end of the season approaches.

Giants want more of this Matt Moore

After lasting an inning and striking out nobody in his last start, Matt Moore had 11 strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win. The last Giants pitcher to record double-digit strikeouts in a start directly following one with no K's was Gaylord Perry in Sept. 1970, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

Buster Posey is a hit in San Francisco

On Tuesday night, Posey became the first Giants player to reach 1,000 hits, all in a San Francisco uniform, since Rich Aurilia in 2003, ESPN Stats & Info notes.

Stats & Info

Buster Posey reaches No. 1,000 in style

Posey homered for the 1,000 hit of his career on Tuesday, but he didn't get all of it. In fact, the 370-foot blast was his shortest homer in over two years, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

Pitcher to watch: Jeff Samardzija

It's easy to criticize pitchers like Samardzija, but the reality is that his durability has been key to the Giants this season. The right-hander has been on a roll lately and will look to keep it going on Wednesday. Schoenfield: Daily wild-card watch (Insider)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Giants starter Matt Moore's dominance was attributable to a new pitch for him, his cutter. Moore had 4 strikeouts with it, his most with the pitch in any game. All four strikeouts were swinging. Moore has thrown 129 cutters since his first start with the Giants. He threw 85 in his career prior to that. Giants pitchers have seven games with 4+ K with their cutter. No other team has more than 3.

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
