With one regular season game remaining, the playoff picture cleared up a bit on Saturday as the Mets won to clinch home field advantage in Wednesday's NL Wild Card game. They'll host either the Cardinals, who won Saturday to stay afloat in the race, or the Giants, who beat the Dodgers. The Cubs dropped their game at Cincinnati.
