Asdrubal Cabrera

A big change in the American League wild card standings, as the combination of the Detroit Tigers winning their doubleheader with the Minnesota Twins and the Baltimore Orioles losing to the Boston Red Sox again, puts the Tigers in the second wild card playoff spot, pushing the Orioles to third. In the National League, the New York Mets dramatic win over the Philadelphia Phillies thanks to a Asdrubal Cabrera home run, and the San Francisco Giants beating the San Diego Padres, places both of them in the wild card playoff spots, leaving the St. Louis Cardinals behind for now.

Detroit Tigers 9  Minnesota Twins 2: The Tigers opened the 9th inning with a 3-run homer by Victor Martinez, and smoothed into another win to open the doubleheader.

Detroit Tigers 4  Minnesota Twins 2: Excellent pitching from Justin Verlander, striking out 11 in six innings, led the way for the Tigers to complete their sweep, and take over the wild card playoff spot from the Orioles.

Boston Red Sox 5  Baltimore Orioles 3: The Red Sox complete a sweep of the Orioles with four consecutive games of five runs. David Price looked solid, and Hanley Ramirez carried on his terrific September with home run number 29 of the season. The Orioles fall into third place on the wild card standings.

Kansas City Royals 2  Cleveland Indians 5: The Indians move closer to the AL Central title thanks to a 3-run homer by Carlos Santana in the 6th, his 34th of the season.

Philadelphia Phillies 8  New York Mets 9: The 11th inning, walk-off home run by Asdrubal Cabrera lifts the Mets into first place along with the Giants in the wild card standings. The game reached extra innings thanks to Jose Reyes hitting a two-run homer in the 9th.
