White Sox finally out in the 8th, 10-6 going to the 9th. All three Central spots still up for grabs.

NY backs into the 5 spot with a TOR loss, so 4 of the AL spots are set now as is one series (TB/TOR):

1) TB
5) NY
6) HOU
8) TOR

MIN will win the Central but need to win today to get the 2 seed over OAK.
Rays drawing NYY for a short series would have been so ridiculous as their reward for best record in the league. The short series is still ridiculous for the #1 seed, though.

Twins into extra innings, they can still finish 2nd (with a win), 3rd (with a loss and a White Sox loss) or 4th (with a loss and White Sox comeback win).

Luis Robert singles, Mazara up as the tying run, Cubs change pitchers again.

Jose Abreu goes 0-for-3 including a 9th inning strikeout, and Sergio Romo's choke job is about to drop the Twins from the #2 seed to #3 (although they're probably better off facing the Astros than the White Sox)... excellent day for Tribe fans.

My pleasure!

Baseball karma dept:

People may recall summer 2019 when Ronald Acuña Jr. was going nuts, homering to lead off three straight games, Miami pitcher Jose Ureña took it upon himself to plunk him in the elbow with the first pitch of the next game. Acuña Jr. had to leave the game, and he later got his own revenge by homering off Ureña, but today, in a totally meaningless game for MIA, DJ LeMahieu rocketed a line drive back at Ureña who instinctively put up his pitching hand to protect himself (probably correctly, since it was headed for his head) and he has a fractured forearm, his season is over.
