Coin FlipRiding on the shoulders of C.C. Sabathia, the Milwaukee Brewers won their third straight game beating the Pirates 4-2 last night. Throw in the Mets extra innings 9-6 loss to the Cubs, and the two teams are now tied for the NL Wild Card.

Could there be shades of last year's Padres/Rockies NL Wild Card race?

The rest of the schedule is as follows for the two teams:

Chicago Cubs at NY Mets (Harden vs Martinez)
Pittsburgh at Milwaukee (Duke vs Gallardo)

Florida at NY Mets (Volstad vs Pelfrey)
Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee (Dempster vs Suppan)

Florida at NY Mets (Nolasco vs Niese)
Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee (Lilly vs Sheets)

Florida at NY Mets (Olsen vs Santana)
Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee (Marquis vs Sabathia)

The schedule seems to favor the Mets, but suddenly, there is the real possibility of a one-game playoff.

With an added coin-flip last Friday by MLB, it was determined that if a regular season tie-breaker game were needed to determine the NL Wild Card, it would be played at Shea Stadium.
