2012 MLB Standings: Dodgers, Angels Both Pushing For Wild Card

The Angels and Dodgers both currently reside on the outside of the playoffs, but remain in contention for Wild Card spots.

The Dodgers enter play on Wednesday just 1½ games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the last playoff spot in the National League. Both teams have struggled down the stretch, as L.A. has went 3-7 over its last 10 games, but only lost one game in the standings to St. Louis in that span. The Dodgers have nine games left with division leaders, as they play three each against the Nationals, Reds and Giants. The Cardinals also face the Nationals and Giants, but have five more to play with the Houston Astros.

The Angels have a little more ground to make up. They are currently three games behind the Baltimore Orioles for the final Wild Card spot in the American League. The Angels have played well, winning four of their last five, but Baltimore has won three straight. The Angels do have six games left against the Mariners, who they have had success against.
