With eight days to go, we still have meaningful games. All times Eastern.
7 p.m., MLB Network, YES Network, SUN Sports: Rays at Yankees. The Rays are two games behind the Red Sox for the AL wild card. With four against the Yankees this week, it doesn't get any easier. Some MLBN viewers will see Orioles/Red Sox.
8 p.m., FSN Midwest, SNY: Mets at Cardinals. The Cardinals do not have any games remaining against teams with winning records. They still have 2-1/2 games to go to catch the Braves. But their road is easier than Atlanta's.
