Mauer needs to collect a bag of hits in the next two days and hope Cabrera and Trout have O-fers... not looking good.

Adam Greenberg got his first official at bat tonight for the Marlins, glad he got a shot to have an official ab maybe he'll get his first hit before the season is over.

Yeah Cabrera seems to be in a zone, I doubt he loses the triple crown

Looks like Red Sox decided to play tonight, up 2-1 over Yankess in the 6th.

O's beat Rays 1-0, just need Boston to hang on and there will be a tie in the East after tonight.

Boston added another run and are up 3-1 in the 9th.

Trout is 0/1 so far tonight and at .324 vs Cabrera at .331.

Joe finished the night at .320.   Batting race is probably over.

Yeah, I'd say that Mauer's chances of winning the batting title are pretty much non-existent right now. 

I hope they go all out to win tomorrow's game because ending the season by getting swept by a team like Toronto would really suck.

Also Twins lost and Indians won tonight so Twins are guaranteed sole

possesion of last place at end of the season.

St Louis and Dodgers still fighting over the last NL wild card spot. If Cards win tonight or Dodgers lose the Cards are in.

Ellsbery with a great catch saves the game and on to 12th inning they go.
