Around the Pennant Chase: Clinching Edition

Yup yup.

News and Notes:

The Phillies' game against the Mets was postponed, so Philadelphia's six game losing streak remains intact.

Meanwhile, the Braves beat the Nationals 7-4.  Coupled with the Cardinals loss, Atlanta now has a three game lead in the Wild Card race.  They can't clinch today, yet, as St. Louis' elimination number is at three, but it's looking inevitable that the Braves will lock this up.  '

The Diamondbacks beat the Giants 3-1 to clinch the NL West.  With that, the three division winners are finalized:  The Phillies, Brewers, and Diamondbacks will take the three top spots in the NL Playoffs.  Matchups will depend on whether the Cardinals can miraculously pull off a comeback.
