A look at what's happening around the majors today:
Toronto (at Boston, facing 22-game winner Rick Porcello) and Baltimore (at Yankee Stadium) are tied for the two wild-card spots in the American League going into the final weekend of the regular season. Detroit (at Atlanta) is 1 ½ games behind, Seattle is two back.
The Mets hold a one-game lead in the NL wild-card scramble as rookie Robert Gsellman starts at Philadelphia. San Francisco (with Madison Bumgarner pitching at home vs. the Dodgers) is one game back, St. Louis (home vs. Pittsburgh) is two behind.
