      You didn't quote MLB. You posted it as your own. That's shoddy reporting and I really can't look at your posts the same any longer. You do not post reliable information.
      Sometimes I feel like my sell by date expired yesterday.

        *sniggering* And you only reply to me when I make a screwup.

          The Los Angeles Dodgers are the first team to hit the century wins mark after beating the San Francisco Giants, 7-2.

          The Dodgers are 100-44 and are 17 wins away from breaking the MLB record set by the 1906 Chicago Cubs and 2001 Seattle Mariners when those two clubs had 116,

                  The New York Mets clinched a playoff berth after beating the Milwaukee Brewers, 7-2.

                  The Atlanta Braves are still on their tails for the National League East Division after their 5-2 victory over the Washington Nationals.

                  The Mets still lead the Braves by a game as Atlanta has two games in hand.

                  After MIL loss, the updated magic numbers for a playoff berth for the other top six teams in the NL via playoffmagic and omnicalculator:
                  STL 7
                  ATL 2
                  SDP 13
                  PHI 14

                    The Atlanta Braves are almost there. Their magic number for a playoff berth is down to one after a 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals.

                    Now, the Braves need their rival New York Mets to beat the Milwaukee Brewers to clinch tonight.

                      What a night for the New York Yankees!

                      Giancarlo Stanton's walk-off grand salami propels the Bronx Bombers to a 9-8 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates despite trailing 8-4 heading into the ninth.

                      Combine that with the Baltimore Orioles' 3-2 defeat to the Detroit Tigers, their magic number for a playoff spot is down to three.

                            Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Dodgers are 12 wins away from tying the MLB record for most regular season wins after a 3-2 walkoff over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

                            The Dodgers need to win all 12 to tie the 1906 Chicago Cubs and 2001 Seattle Mariners for the most regular season wins in a single season. Both the Cubs and Mariners had 116.

                            The record for most overall (regular season and postseason) wins for a MLB champion is still in play for the Dodgers where the highest is 127. The record is 125 set by the 1998 New York Yankees.

                            However, the Dodgers will take on the St. Louis Cardinals next whose magic number for the NL Central title is down to five.

                                The Cleveland Guardians can smell the postseason.

                                The Guardians won their 17th game in the last 20 after doubling up the Texas Rangers, 4-2.

                                Now, the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox, 7-2.

                                CLE's magic number for the AL Central title is down to one.

                                A win over TEX or a CWS loss to DET gives the Guardians the AL Central title.
