Detroit has an unusual season-ending Interleague series, and it won't be an easy one. While the standings show that the Atlanta Braves are in last place in the NL East, they are not the same team that created the bulk of that poor record.
The Braves will be hosting the Tigers this weekend for what will be the final series ever held at Turner Field, and Atlanta has now won 10 of its last 11 games.
There remains the possibility of a three- or four-team tie at the end of the weekend, including the extra Detroit game on Monday.
That would set up a series of playoff games next week just to get into the actual MLB postseason. It could well be a wild weekend before we even get into that Wild Card game. Hang on to your seats, baseball fans.
