The Dodgers were the first to secure their division, doing so on September 10th against the Baltimore Orioles. It took them only 146 games to secure their seventh straight division title.

Next up were the Yankees. The Bronx Bombers clinched their first division title since 2012 against the Angel on September 19th.

Following them was the Braves, and then the Astros, who clinched the NL East and AL West respectively. The Cardinals, who currently lead the NL Central by 3 games, have secured a playoff birth as well.

On Tuesday, the Nationals were able to clinch a Wild Card spot with their doubleheader sweep of the Phillies and the Cubs’ loss to the Pirates. The Twins went on to win the AL Central, and the red-hot Brewers are rolling into October
