A look at the days ahead for the Wild Card contenders

The Blue Jays head into Baltimore today to take on the division leading Orioles , which will be a key series for Toronto if it wants to stay in the Wild Card race. Sitting at 77-71 on the season and four games back of the Royals for the second Wild Card, it's looking like the Blue Jays will have to win at the very least 12 of their last 14 games to have a chance to get their first playoff berth in 21 years.

Chris Rongey Rongey: White Soxa future looking bright

Having already been officially eliminated from the playoff race, the Sox will finish the season under .500 and no better than fourth place in the AL Central. Not exactly the result we were all hoping for when the team was just 2½ games out of first place in early June.

Athletics Week in Review: Signs of Life

May hunkers down, helps Twins beat White Sox

May hunkers down, helps Twins beat White Sox CHICAGO -- Minnesota Twins rookie right-hander Trevor May could've crumbled in a tight situation Sunday afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field . Instead, he used a mound visit by pitching coach Rick Anderson to reset his pitch selection and escape a fourth-inning jam with three straight strikeouts in the Twins' 6-4 win against the Chicago White Sox.

Who will determine the AL Central champ?

Could lefty Chris Sale of the out-of-contention White Sox have a major impact on the Detroit-Kansas City race? The standings on this Friday in September show the Kansas City Royals with a half-game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central, a lead sliced to that miniscule margin because of the Royals' loss to woeful Boston Thursday night.

MLB Notebook: Sale in rare AL company

In 1914, Red Sox southpaw Dutch Leonard engaged the American League to the tune of a 0.96 ERA , allowed batters to reach via a hit at a rate of 5.57 per nine innings pitched and fanned 20.9 percent of all batters he faced.
