Playoff percentages: Every game matters for Twins, Angels
Through the remainder of the regular season, we'll take a look at how the night's action impacts the playoff races, highlighting which teams' postseason odds went up or down significantly.
With about two weeks left in the regular season, already feverish postseason races are heating up even more as teams vie for their chance at a World Series title.
With the New York Yankees holding a pretty firm grip on the top wild-card spot in the American League, one of the more intriguing races is between the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels for second spot.
After the Angels made up some ground after a win - and Twins loss - on Saturday night, L.A. lost its footing following Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Texas Rangers and a 13-7 Twins victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Every game matters now for these two clubs, as it's beginning to look like a two-horse race for the final playoff spot in the AL.
|Twins||W 13-7 vs. Blue Jays||73.0%||+13.6%|
|Angels||L 4-2 vs. Rangers||20.7%||-11.2%|
|Brewers||W 10-3 vs. Marlins||17.5%||+5.5%|
