Breaking Down A Possible Three Way NL Wild Card Tie

By Chandler Guadagnin

With the NL Wild Card Game scheduled for October 5, the San Francisco Giants are currently in a three way tie, with the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets, for two Wild Card spots.

To resolve this issue, the Mets and Cardinals would play on October 3 to determine the first Wild Card team. The loser of the Mets-Cardinals game would head to San Francisco to play the Giants on October 4 to determine the second Wild Card slot.

The winner of the Mets-Cardinals game would host the winner of the October 4 game in the NL Wild Card game.

A tie for the Wild Card game has never occurred since its inception in 2012.
