MLB Standings: Dodgers Lose Ground After Tuesday's Loss

The Los Angeles Dodgers saw a four-game winning streak snapped when they lost to the San Diego Padres in extra innings on Tuesday night, and it cost them in their quest for the 2012 MLB playoffs.

Los Angeles now sits 1.5 games back of the St. Louis Cardinals for the final Wild Card berth. It is hoping to pass the Cardinals and earn a shot at a one-game playoff before the Divison Series.

The division race is more of an uphill battle for the Dodgers, as they now sit 4.5 games behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West. Los Angeles has lost two games in the standings over the last 10.

With 27 games left to play in the season, time is running out to make a move. The Dodgers will hope to get back some ground in the race as they face the Padres again on Wednesday night.
