The race for Major League Baseball’s central division is the closest in baseball, heading into the final month of the season. The Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals, and Cincinnati Reds are separated by only 3 and a half games. The Cardinals play the Reds and Pirates each 3 more times in the last 25 games of the season. The Reds and the Pirates play each other 6 more times in the next 4 weeks. This race will definitely be something to watch for baseball fans. The funny thing is, more than likely all 3 teams will make the playoffs due to new playoff format. Keep a close eye on this race in the month of September.
