The Dodgers and Giants and the A's and Angels begin their last head-to-head series this year. In what boils down to the last two races left, the home team in both is one game behind the away team in the four-game series. At least for the loser of the A's-Angels series, they still know that they are going to the playoffs (possibly to face off again with the winner of the series). The loser of the Dodgers-Giants series will probably stay home in the postseason. The Giants may have more pressure on them given that they do still have another playoff contender (Houston in the last series) to face; LA can breeze through with San Diego and Milwaukee. Oakland has one extra series with the M's which would have seemed a disadvantage a few weeks ago. Now, I'm not sure.
