Who Will Win The NL Central?
Michael asked:In the central division the cards are in first place and the pirates are in second place...if the pirates beat the cards do they win 1 game or a half game?
Rick answered:Michael, thank you for your question.
As of today, the Cardinals are up by 4 games up on the Pirates.
If the Cardinals win todays game, they will be 5 games up, thus gaining one full game.
With a Cardinal win, Pirate's loss, the Pirates drop a game, and will be 5 games behind.
Both teams have 5 games left to play in the regular season. A Cardinal win today would clinch the Central, as there will only be 4 games left in the regular season.
Pirates have to win out to win it.
The formula for figuring games ahead, or behind is:
Games Behind= (Team A's wins - Team B's wins) + (Team B's losses - Team A's losses) divided by 2
