CENTRAL CASTING: Three teams from the NL Central are headed to the postseason. In addition to Pittsburgh and first-place St. Louis, the Cincinnati Reds clinched no worse than a wild card when they beat the New York Mets 3-2 in 10 innings and Washington lost to the Cardinals 4-3. Unlike the Pirates, the Reds did not celebrate. They're still hoping for a second straight division crown. St. Louis owns a two-game lead over Cincinnati and Pittsburgh with five to play.
