While five postseason tickets have already been punched on the American League side of things Early Wynn Jersey , there's still a lot to be sorted out in the National League.The Atlanta Braves are the only team that has clinched a spot so far, securing the NL West title over the fading Philadelphia Phillies this past weekend.That leaves two division titles and two wild-card spots yet to be decided, and there are five teams battling for those four playoff berths.Here's a look at where things stand among relevant NL teams:Division LeadersNL East:Atlanta Braves (89-68); clinched divisionNL Central:Chicago Cubs (91-66); 0.5-game lead in divisionNL West:Los Angeles Dodgers (88-70); 0.5-game lead in division Wild-Card Standings1.Milwaukee Brewers (91-67)2.Colorado Rockies (87-70)3.St. Louis Cardinals (87-71)OverviewDustin Bradford/Getty ImagesAccording to FanGraphs, the current playoff odds for the five teams still trying to clinch are: Cubs (100.0 percent), Brewers (100.0 percent), Dodgers (94.6 percent), Rockies (66.7 percent) andCardinals (38.8 percent).All five teams are within a half-game of a postseason spot, and that leaves the possibility open for some potential tiebreaker situations beyond Game 162:Jeff Passan JeffPassanCubs 91-66Brewers 91-67Braves 89-68Dodgers 88-70Rockies 87-70Cards 87-71Cool: Real possibility of Game 163s Monday in Chicago and LA for NL Central/West titles.Cooler: Three-way tie where Cards host NLW Game 163 loser for second WC.Coolest: Six-way tie with 91 wins.Here's a look at the remaining schedule for those five teams:CHC:vs. PIT (2), vs. STL (3)MIL:at STL (1), vs. DET (3)STL: vs. MIL (1), at CHC (3)LAD:at ARI (1), at SF (3)COL:vs. PHI (2), vs. WAS (3)In the NLCentral Avisail Garcia Jersey , the Cubs and Cardinals have both lost two in a row, while the Brewers have won three straight to pull within a half-game of the Cubs.The Rockies are the hottest team of the bunch with a five-game winning streak to their credit, but the Dodgers have the best record in their last 10 games at 7-3.With so many different potential matchups for the Wild Card Game, let's take a run through how each team has performed this season against the other four contenders:CHC:11-8 vs. MIL, 7-9 vs. STL, 4-3 vs. LAD, 3-3 vs. COLMIL:8-11 vs. CHC, 9-8 vs. STL, 3-4 vs. LAD, 5-2 vs. COLSTL:9-7 vs. CHC, 8-9 vs. MIL, 4-3 vs. LAD, 5-2 vs. COLLAD: 3-4 vs. CHC , 4-3 vs. MIL, 3-4 vs. STL, 12-7 vs. COLCOL: 3-3 vs. CHC, 2-5 vs. MIL. 2-5 vs. STL, 7-12 vs. LADThe Brewers would appear to have the easiest road ahead with three games left against the 93-loss Detroit Tigers.The Dodgers will face a highly-motivated spoiler in the rival San Francisco Giants at ATT Park, and despite a disappointing season overall, the Giants actually lead the season series 9-7 thus far.While the Washington Nationals have been playing well of late with a 13-10 record in September, the Rockies took three of four from them earlier this year.And it just doesn't get any better than Cubs vs. Cardinals at Wrigley Field to close out the season with both teams fighting for a spot. All stats courtesy ofBaseball Reference, and accurate through Sept. 25. Oakland Athletics right-hander Trevor Cahill is as flummoxed as anyone by his extreme home/road splits this season.The veteran right-hander has a sparkling 0.87 ERA in eight starts at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum in 2018 but owns a 6.62 mark in seven road outings this season.“I think it’s just baseball,” Cahill said.Article continues below ...Athletics manager Bob Melvin doesn’t have an answer, either. “I haven’t seen any difference as far as his stuff goes,” Melvin said.Whatever the reason for the glaring discrepancy, the A’s will be counting on Cahill (5-2 Bobby Jenks Jersey , 3.12 ERA) to buck the trend Thursday night when they open a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis.Cahill is 1-1 with a 4.30 ERA in six career appearances, including four starts, against Minnesota. He has not faced the Twins this year, though.Oakland fell one game back of the Houston Astros in the American League West race Wednesday with a 4-2 loss against the Texas Rangers. The Athletics had won two straight and four of their last five before Wednesday’s setback and have compiled a 13-5 record in August. .“We’ve been playing great and bringing the same attitude every day,” Melvin said of his team, which entered Wednesday’s game with a .264 collective batting average and a 2.64 ERA in the first 17 games this month.That level of play, as well as the A’s attitude, have propelled them into the AL playoff picture. Though they’re right behind front-running Houston in the West, they will hold a comfortable 4 1/2-game lead over Seattle for the second AL wild card when they take the field against the Twins, whose postseason dreams were dashed weeks ago.Minnesota is using these last few weeks to evaluate its young talent, including Thursday starter Kohl Stewart.Stewart posted a 4.76 ERA with Double-A Chatanooga to start the season and earned his first big league call-up after going 0-3 with a 3.98 mark in seven appearances (five starts) for Triple-A Rochester.He allowed three runs over 4 1/3 innings Aug. 12 in his major league debut at Detroit and allowed three more runs his next time out, but lasted just 2 2/3 innings in the latter game, a 7-5 loss to the Tigers on Saturday in Minneapolis. The 23-year-old only Stewart (0-1 , 7.71) allowed three hits in that outing but walked four while throwing just 31 of his 65 pitches for strikes.“You just can’t fall behind guys like that, can’t walk guys,” said Stewart. “I’ve got to give my team a better chance to win. It was not acceptable. I just wasn’t getting ahead, wasn’t executing pitches. I was one pitch away there in the third, and tried to do too much and got myself in trouble.”Despite those struggles, manager Paul Molitor opted to leave Stewart in the rotation for another go-round after sitting down with him for a postgame chat.“It’s a learning experience. I just talked to him about, it’s not so much executing (or) what you’re throwing, it’s, ‘What are you feeling?'” Molitor said. “You’ve got to really be able to seize the moment in terms of controlling your emotions, and do what you do. And it just seemed like it got a little fast.”
