Seems the Los Angeles Dodgers have not clinched a playoff berth simply but.
Whereas Main League Baseball had mentioned on Sunday that the Dodgers (96-43) secured a post-season spot with their 11-2 victory over the San Diego Padres, the league introduced it made an inner error on Monday.
The Dodgers’ magic quantity stays one heading into their sport in opposition to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, even supposing the staff bought caps with the playoff emblem on Sunday evening and celebrated with a toast.
The Dodgers are 20 video games forward of the Padres for first within the Nationwide League West, so the staff’s tenth consecutive playoff spot is a mere formality.
However MLB mentioned Monday there’s a state of affairs by which the Padres might overtake the Dodgers for first within the NL West and that L.A. might then end in a three-way tie with the Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals within the wild-card standings. In that state of affairs, the Brewers would win the NL Central and the Cardinals would remove the Dodgers by advantage of tiebreaker.
The Dodgers must go 0-23 the remainder of the way in which to overlook the playoffs.
