final team in the MLB playoff field after beating the San Francisco Giants 10-6 on Saturday.The American League playoff picture is 100-percent official http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , as all five teams are in and know their respective seedings. However,none of the National League seedings are confirmed with just one game to go.We do know that the Atlanta Braves are the NL East champions and will either be the No. 2 or No. 3 seed.Otherwise, it's chaos.You can check out both playoff pictures below as teams get ready for Game No. 162 on Sunday. American League Playoff Picture (Official)1. Boston Red Sox (107-54, AL East champion)2. Houston Astros (103-58, AL West champion)3. Cleveland Indians (90-71, AL Central champion)4. New York Yankees (100-61, AL first Wild Card)5. Oakland Athletics (97-64, AL second Wild Card)The Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians will play each other in the American League Division Series. The New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics face off in the Wild Card Game on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET, with the winner taking on the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. National League (Through Saturday)1. Chicago Cubs (94-67, NL Central champion)2. Colorado Rockies (90-71, NL West champion)3. Atlanta Braves (90-71, NL East champion)4. Milwaukee Brewers (94-67, NL first Wild Card)5. Los Angeles Dodgers (90-71 Andre Dawson Jersey , NL second Wild Card)Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee BrewersThe Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers are tied for the NL Central lead with one game to go. The Cubs host the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, with Chicago southpaw Mike Montgomery facing Redbirds ace Jack Flaherty. The Milwaukee Brewers host the Detroit Tigers: Lefty Gio Gonzalez goes for the Brew Crew, while right-hander Spencer Turnbull goes for Detroit.Here's what we do know heading into Sunday: The NL Central division winner will get the No. 1 seed, and the runner-up will host the NL Wild Card Game on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.However, we may not know the identities of the first- and second-place teams until Monday: If the Cubs and Brewers have the same Sunday result (whether it's two wins or two losses is irrelevant), they'll take part in a one-game playoff at Wrigley Field, per David Adler of MLB.com. The Cubs would get that hosting honor by virtue of winning the season series 11-8 over Milwaukee.Of course, the tiebreaker can be avoided if the Cubs and Brewers have different results Sunday. Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta BravesThe Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers are tied for the NL West lead with one game to go. The Rockies host the Washington Nationals on Sunday, with left-hander Tyler Anderson taking the mound for the Rockies and right-hander Erick Fedde going for the Nats.The Rockies catch a massive break by avoiding Cy Young candidate and MLB strikeout king Max Scherzer, who could have gone Sunday on regular rest but will call it a season.The Dodgers send out right-hander Walker Buehler against the host San Francisco Giants and left-hander Andrew Suarez.The NL West race is a bit more confusing than the NL Central one. We do know that the eventual division winner will face the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS, but the seeding is to be determined (see below). The loser will travel to face the NL Central runner-up in the NL Wild Card Game on Tuesday.There will be a one-game tiebreaker on Monday if both NL West teams win (or lose tomorrow). The Dodgers will host that matchup thanks to their 12-7 season-series win.If there is no tie (that would mean a Rockies win and Dodgers loss Sunday or vice versa), then the winning side will be the NL West champion and the No. 2 seed.The only way Atlanta can get the No. 2 seed is if they beat the Philadelphia Phillies (right-hander Kevin Gausman goes for the Braves against Phils left-hander Ranger Suarez) and the Rockies and Dodgers both lose. That would leave the Braves as the uncontested No. 2 seed alone at 91-71.The Braves lost theseason-series tiebreakerto the Rockies and Dodgers Ron Santo Jersey , so they'd be lower in the NL bracket if there is a tie. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Dee Gordon doesn’t have many home runs this season. Two to be exact. So when Seattle’s light-hitting utility player muscled up in the 12th inning, he celebrated by kissing both biceps as he stood in the dugout after crossing home plate.It was a good-natured gesture toward a few of Gordon’s teammates who were ribbing him as he rounded the bases. It was also an expression of relief for the Mariners, who lost the first two games of this series after sweeping first-place Houston on the road.Gordon homered off Yusmeiro Petit to break a scoreless tie, and the Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 2-0 on Wednesday to avoid a three-game sweep.“I got lucky,” Gordon said. “It’s evening out. I’ve been lining out so much the last month.”Jean Segura had four hits to help the Mariners close within 2½ games of the A’s for the second AL wild-card spot.“We needed to get this ballgame today,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “It’s not going to get any easier, but we’re starting to play with our confidence again and have some swag to our team.”Seattle’s Mike Leake pitched eight innings of two-hit ball with six strikeouts and one walk. Oakland’s Brett Anderson went 7 2/3 innings without allowing a run in his longest outing since June 16, 2015.Nick Martini had three hits for the A’s and Matt Olson added two. Oakland entered the day one game behind first-place Houston.“In games like that, typically what happens, it’s one pitch,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “That was the case today. Even though today was tough, we have to look at it as a positive. We took the series.”Both teams squandered numerous scoring opportunities before Seattle scraped together two runs on one hit.After Petit (5-3) got leadoff man Denard Span to ground out http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , Mike Zunino walked. Gordon hit the next pitch over the right-field wall. Then he flexed and kissed his biceps.“I was messing with Cam (Maybin) and (Denard Span) because they’ve been calling me skinny so I had to let them know I’ve got some guns,” Gordon said. “And it was a big situation … in a playoff race. Just having fun.”Gordon’s only other home run was a solo shot against Cleveland on April 1 in Seattle’s third game of the season.James Pazos (3-1) retired one batter for the victory. Edwin Diaz pitched the 12th for his major league-leading 47th save in 50 opportunities.The Mariners had two on with one out in the in the ninth and 11th but failed to score. The A’s stranded Olson at second in the 10th, and then had two on in the 11th before Pazos got Khris Davis to strike out swinging.Olson singled leading off the 12th before Diaz struck out Stephen Piscotty, Marcus Semien and pinch-hitter Chad Pinder.CLOSING IN ON A RECORDDiaz converted all six save opportunities on the Mariners’ road trip and is one shy of the franchise record of 48 set by Fernando Rodney in 2014. Rodney is with the A’s in a setup role.THIS AND THATSegura leads the majors with 18 three-hit games. … A’s third baseman Matt Chapman doubled in the sixth to extend his hitting streak to a career-best 13 games. Chapman has also reached safely in 29 straight, the longest active streak in the AL.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: James Paxton was placed on the disabled list with a forearm bruise, one day after the left-hander was struck by a line drive. Felix Hernandez, who allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings in his first career relief appearance, is likely to take Paxton’s turn in the rotation. RHP Christian Bergman was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.UP NEXTMariners: LHP Wade LeBlanc (7-2, 3.80 ERA) pitches against the Dodgers on Friday in Seattle to begin a six-game homestand. LeBlanc is 1-7 in 11 career appearances against Los Angeles.Athletics: RHP Edwin Jackson (4-2, 2.48) faces the Houston Astros on Friday. Jackson’s ERA is the fourth-lowest in the American League since he joined Oakland on June 25.
