The pennant races in the Western Divisions of both leagues are coming down to the final weekend.
In the National League, my hometown Dodgers lead SF by 3. If the Dodgers win one game this weekend at Chavez Ravine, the West is theirs.
The Dodgers are guaranteed at least an NL Wild Card berth if the Rockies beat the Astros in one game this weekend in their series at Minute Maid Park. The Dodgers are far enough ahead of both the Cubs and the Padres to where niether of them would get the Wild Card ahead of the Dodgers (both could still get in ahead of either the Giants or Astros).
In the AL, whoever wins 2 of 3 between the Angels and Athletics at Oakland this weekend wins the AL West.
Makes for one of the better final weekends in baseball in quite some time.
