MLB Postseason Matchups Set

Zoonar/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — It took all 162 games, but the Major League postseason was decided on Sunday as the top 10 teams found out where and when their next games will be. Both the American League and National League Central division titles were also won on Sunday while the final AL Wild Card spot was decided.

David Price tossed seven and one-third innings of shutout baseball, giving up four hits and striking out eight, to give the Detroit Tigers the AL Central crown for the fourth straight year. Ian Kinsler drove in a pair of runs in the 3-0 victory while Joe Nathan picked up his 35th save of the season. The Tigers will travel to AL East Champion Baltimore to begin best-of-five divisional series against the Orioles on Thursday.

The Tigers’ victory means that Kansas City’s first postseason appearance in 29 years will come in the Wild Card round. The Royals will host the Oakland Athletics, who eliminated the Seattle Mariners with a 4-0 win over the Texas Rangers Sunday, in a one-game “play-in” on Tuesday night. The winner of that contest will then travel to Los Angeles to battle the Angels in the divisional round, beginning Thursday.

In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 after they were already crowned Central division champs. Pittsburgh’s 4-1 loss relegated the Pirates to the Wild Card round where they will host the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday. Whoever advances will then visit the Washington Nationals, winner of the NL East, in the divisional series on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals begin their defense of the NL Pennant on Friday when they travel to NL West champion Los Angeles to battle with the Dodgers.

Nationals’ Jordan Zimmerman Tosses No-Hitter

Nationals’ Jordan Zimmerman Tosses No-Hitter

Rob Carr/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Jordan Zimmerman tossed a no-hitter in the Nationals 1-0 win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Zimmerman became the fifth pitcher in MLB history to pitch a no-hitter on the last day of the regular season.

This is the second year in a row the unique feat has happened after Henderson Alverez of the Marlins threw nine hitless innings against the Detroit Tigers.

The final out occurred in dramatic fashion as Christian Yelich smashed a ball to deep left center.  Nationals left fielder Steven Souza tracked the ball perfectly through the air, dove for the ball and raised his hands in triumph as he came up with the game-ending catch. 

The Nationals will host the winner of the Pirates/Giants wild card playoff game, which will take place on Wednesday.

Nationals, Angels Clinch Home-Field Advantage

Nationals, Angels Clinch Home-Field Advantage

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — With just two days remaining in the regular season, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Washington Nationals each clinched home-field advantage through the playoffs in their respective leagues on Friday.

For the Nationals (94-66), their double header split with the Miami Marlins earned them the top seed in the National League. Washington got a complete game from Doug Fister in Game One, winning it 4-0 to wrap up home-field until the World Series. Fister allowed just three hits while striking out nine in the win. Miami (77-83) went on to win the nightcap 15-7 in a meaningless game for the Nationals.

The Angels (98-62) could clinch the top seed in the American League with a win over Seattle, but the Mariners hit three home runs and picked up a 4-3 victory. Los Angeles did get home-field advantage however due to Baltimore’s 4-2 loss in Toronto. Leading 4-0 after five innings, the Mariners (85-75) held off a late charge from LA to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Seattle sits two games back of Oakland for the second wild card spot.

This is the second time in three seasons that Washington has the top record in the NL while the Angels clinched the top spot in the AL for the first time since 2008. The American League has home-field advantage in the World Series thanks to a 5-3 win in the All-Star Game.

Nationals Walk-Off Again, Earn 10th-Straight Win

Nationals Walk-Off Again, Earn 10th-Straight Win

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) –The Washington Nationals won for the fifth time in six games on a walk-off, this time on a throwing error, as they beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 Thursday.

The Nationals have now won 10 straight.

Denard Span scored the winning run when Anthony Rendon hit a ground ball to third baseman Jordan Pacheco. Pacheco proceeded to throw the ball past the first baseman and into the camera well. That allowed Span, who started the play on second base, to be rewarded home.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez pitched seven innings of scoreless ball allowing four hits and three walks while striking out six, and Rafael Soriano (4-1) pitched a perfect ninth for the win.
 

Washington (73-53) become the first team since the 1986 Astros to win five games via the walk-off in a six-game span.

Nationals Win Third Straight Via Walk-Off

Nationals Win Third Straight Via Walk-Off

Gary Bogdon/MLB Photos via Getty Images(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — For the third consecutive game, the Washington Nationals earned a walk-off victory, this time beating Arizona on an Adam LaRoche solo home run in the 11th. The previous two walk-offs came against Pittsburgh, helping to sweep the Pirates.

“I got every bit of it, I did,” said the 34-year-old LaRoche, who hit his first career walk-off homer. “Just a crazy few days. I don’t know how we’ve gotten these walk-off situations the last few days, but we have and have been able to grind back.”

The Diamondbacks (53-72) led 3-2 going to the bottom of the eighth, thanks to a Didi Gregorious homer. Washington (70-53) followed with a pair of runs in their at-bat, taking a 4-3 lead into the ninth. Tyler Clippard came on to save the game for the Nationals but gave up a game-tying shot to David Peralta.

Both teams had chances to score in extras, none better than Arizona’s attempt in the top of the 11th. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases with nobody out, but Craig Stammen somehow worked out of it, not allowing a single run. With two outs in the bottom of the inning, LaRoche launched a pitch off Will Harris for the win.
