Some pennant races could tighten up today. But don't count on it. All times Eastern.
5 p.m., FSN Wisconsin, ROOT Sports Pittsburgh: Brewers at Pirates. Yes, that's right -- 5 p.m. The teams are making up a postponed game from April 12 by playing a straight doubleheader. Single admission. What we used to call a "twi-nighter". How very 1960s.
7 p.m., MLB Network, SNY, CSN Philadelphia: Mets at Phillies. The elimination number for the Mets, who once thought they might contend this year, is 16. Some MLBN viewers will see Red Sox/Rangers at 8 p.m. ET.
7 p.m., FSN Detroit, SUN Sports: Tigers at Rays. Here's why we need the second wild card: because the Rays have a better record than the Tigers, and the Tigers are 4.5 games in the lead for a playoff spot, but the Rays are 7.5 games behind a playoff spot.
8 p.m., NESN, FSN Southwest: Red Sox at Rangers. Both of these teams are likely headed to the postseason.
