MLB Standings: Cardinals in playoffs after clinching Wild Card on Tuesday

The Wild Card race is finally over in the National League. After a loss by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night, the St. Louis Cardinals clinched their spot in the postseason with an 87-74 record, two games better than LA's 85-76 record with one game remaining.

With every postseason spot clinched, October's picture is nearly complete in the National League. The Washington Nationals (97-64), Cincinnati Reds (97-64), San Francisco Giants (94-67) and Atlanta Braves (93-68) will join the Cards in the race for the 2012 World Series title. The only issue yet to be determined is seeding. Washington and Cincinnati enter the final day tied for the best record in the league.

Things aren't quite as settled in the American League, and the big game to watch will be the season finale between the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers for the AL West title. Both teams sit at 93-68 going into the final game of the year.
