You could say there are some close divisional races in the National League:

.551 54-44 San Francisco
.550 55-45 Los Angeles

.545 54-45 Milwaukee
.545 54-45 St. Louis

.552 53-43 Washington
.551 54-44 Atlanta

Pittsburgh (52-46) and Cincinnati (51-47) are within 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 games of the NL Central lead, meaning that eight teams can call themselves top contenders for the five playoff spots in the NL.

Dodgers don’t believe HBPs were intentional, but they’re still fed up


Dee Gordon wins Heart and Hustle Award


  1. And one of Dreifort’s steals was of home. IIRC, the opponents were so busy complaining about something to the umpire they didn’t realize the ball was still in play. Dreifort trotted in.

  2. Wow, Kemp in right field and Ethier in center… that’s gotta really piss off Kemp.
