It's crunch time, folks. We've reached the stretch run. With a month left until the 162nd game is played, we are officially in the pennant race.
Currently, there are three divisions (NL West, AL West and AL East) in which the first and second-place teams are separated by three games or fewer. But as we all know, anything can happen in baseball—and that holds even more truth during the month of September.
In recent years, the world has watched the New York Mets lose a division title after having a seven-game lead with 16 games to go (2007).
That same year, we also saw the Colorado Rockies spin off an 11-game win streak that helped propel them into the playoffs, after being in fourth place in the NL West on September 16.
So, who's ready to make that miracle push into the playoffs this year? Let's take a look, shall we.
