Who is the next closer on a wild-card contender to have a catastrophic blow-up? On Friday, it was the Astros' Ken Giles, who gave up six runs in the ninth. Today, it was the Tigers' Francisco Rodriguez, who gave up five in the ninth. With the Blue Jays shutting out the Yankees again, it's now looking like the Tigers, Orioles, Mariners and Astros battling for one spot.

Knuckleballer RA Dickey taking the mound as Mariners and Jays are tied 1-1 in the 12th. He pitched good game in his last start last week. Will always remember catching Dickey one day when he was with Seattle.
