Rays' James Shields strikes out 15 Orioles, but loses, 1-0. Orioles still alive, force Yankees to win.

Shields' Game Score for that effort was 94, which places him in tenth place for the year. Shields also holds the # 12 spot with a GS of 92 on July 31st against the A's, a three hit nine inning shutout, no walks and eleven strikeouts.

Whooda thunk it? An amped up Grant Balfour got Hamilton on a great play by Pennington, then struck out Beltre and Nelson...and tomorrow at 12:35 pm Pacific time, the A's will be playing the Rangers for the division title.

Miguel Cabrera has the RBI title locked up (leads 138-129), would need something really unusual to lose the batting title (leads .331 to .325) and if Josh Hamilton doesn't hit a pair of homers tomorrow against the A's, Cabrera is the first Triple Crown winner since Yaz in '67.

San Francisco has just eliminated the Dodgers, 4-3 in an extremely tight game.

Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals, who despite their loss today, have backed into the post season courtesy of the Giants.

All the post season participants are now known, what remains tomorrow is to find out which AL teams will be the division champs and which two will be in that one game playoff.

The most bizarre thing about the Dodger loss, Vin Scully wrapped up the broadcast and said goodnight everybody, without ever mentioning that the loss eliminated the Dodgers from contention for the wild card.

Yeah, Scully doesn't do his homework, he won't last long in this business.

One potential problem facing the A's today. Their bullpen has been a strength down the stretch, but:
Grant Balfour has pitched 4 consecutive games and thrown 47 pitches
Ryan Cook has pitched 4 consecutive games and thrown 63 pitches
Sean Doolittle has pitched 3 consecutive games and thrown 33 pitches
*Bullpen Usage - Daily Baseball Data

If needed their effectiveness might be decreased.
