They need a lot to go their way

Yesterday, I wrote a piece detailing how the Angels could still make the postseason. Well, we needed two outcomes to go the Halos’ way on Thursday. They didn’t.

The Angels needed the Blue Jays to lose and they needed the Astros to lose. Both those teams won. Now, in order for LA to sneak into the postseason, it’s very simple.

Houston has to go 0-3 to close out the season and the Angels need to go 3-0. That’s it. The Mariners could still technically force a three-way tie at 29-31, but the Angels would win that three-team tiebreaker.

But it looks like the clock is close to striking midnight on this Cinderella run the Angels have gone on over the last few weeks.
