Still so much baseball left

The Astros still have a teeny bit of breathing room. They can afford to lose one more game, as long as the Angels lose tomorrow, too. The Halos, on the other hand, need the Astros to lose both weekend games in order to clinch the wild-card spot.

Taylor: Angels keep Rangers' hopes of clinching on ice

On the cusp of clinching the AL West, the Rangers blew a four-run lead in the ninth inning against an Angels team that couldn't afford to lose if it's going to stay in the AL wild-card race.


Rangers so close to victory, then lose

At one point in the 8th inning, the Rangers had a win probability (according to Fangraphs) of 99 percent. A crazy Angels 5-run rally in the 9th and a foiled Elvis Andrus steal attempt for the final out, and the Rangers were 11-10 losers. Stats on wild comeback

Giavotella plays the hero again

Johnny Giavotella put the Angels up for good with his 9th-inning single that capped a wild 5-run rally. It was his 3rd go-ahead hit in the 9th inning or later this season, more than any other Angels hitter this year.

Angels' historic comeback

The last time a team came back by 4 runs down in the 9th inning on the road was June 25, 2012, when the Cardinals beat the Marlins. Since that day, teams had lost 1,761 consecutive games when trailing by 4 runs in the 9th inning on the road.
