Coming down the stretch, we had 4 series to determine playoff spots. Here's what happened:
NEW ORLEANS at AUSTIN
New Orleans took 2 out of 3 from Austin, taking a 2 game lead in the process. But their work is not done yet. They'll need a combination of 2 wins over Houston and losses by Austin over San Juan to take the last wild card spot. If they end up tied, Austin would go to its first ever postseason.
ST. LOUIS at MILWAUKEE
St. Louis took 2 out of 3 to all but wrap up the division and keep Milwaukee out of the playoffs for the first time. The only thing that can save Milwaukee now is a sweep of Buffalo coupled with a Syracuse sweep of St. Louis.
LOUISVILLE at NEW YORK
Louisville needed only one win going into the series to mathematically clinch their 7th straight AL East title and got it in the first game of the series. They ended up taking two out of 3 to end the relevant portion of New York's season.
OKLAHOMA CITY at MONTERREY
The hometown Sultans took 2 out of 3 to grab a tenuous lead in the race for the #5 spot. OKC holds the tiebreaker, so there's no cushion for Monterrey. During their 3 game set, Helena lost 3 straight to assure both teams of a wild card spot.
