N.L. Wild Card Standings: Cardinals hold on to 2-game lead over Dodgers

The St. Louis Cardinals' magic number is now down to two following Sunday's win over the Washington Nationals. The Los Angeles Dodgers were able to gain a game on the Cards after sweeping the Colorado Rockies over the weekend, but St. Louis still controls its own destiny.

If the Cardinals can combine a win in their final series of the season with any Dodgers loss, they'll clinch the second wildcard spot in the National League. If the Cards win twice, they're in no matter what. St. Louis will host the Cincinnati Reds, who have already clinched the NL Central division title, while the Dodgers host the San Francisco Giants, who are champions of the NL West.

St. Louis sends Jaime Garcia to the mound on Monday to face Cincinnati's Bronson Arroyo, while Los Angeles has Aaron Harang going up against San Francisco's Matt Cain.
