We missed Monday’s big games, but the Yankees and Phillies both won to extend their division leads over the Rays and Braves, respectively. The Rays are now 1.5 games back of the Yankees and the Braves trail the Phillies by 4 games. The Rays (and Yankees should they lose the division lead) have a lock on the AL Wild Card. The Braves are up 2 games in the NL Wild Card. Padres trail the NL East leading Giants by half a game. The Rockies are 1.5 games back in the NL East and 3 back in the Wild Card. (The Rockies start a three game series at Arizona on Tuesday. Check your local listings for those games).
