Rays beat Twins, clinch playoff berth

by thoughtfulconservative

From Yahoo Sports

Tampa Bay, 66-96 a year ago, joined the 1991 Atlanta Braves as the only teams to advance to the postseason a year after having the worst record in the majors. It’s the second AL team—and 11th overall—to go from last place to the playoffs in successive years.

There are now three teams with playoff spots, the Cubs who clinched the NL Central today, the Angels and the Devil Rays. Boston will probably get another, as they and the Devil Rays fight for the AL East. The White Sox have the upper hand in the AL Central and the Dodgers in the NL West. The Phillies and Mets look to tangle for the NL East and wildcard.

The Brewers, D-Backs and Twins are still in contention but time is running out.

The rest of the teams not yet technically eliminated need a miracle.
