The Houston Astros remain heavy favorites, but the Seattle Mariners, Oakland Athletics, and Los Angeles Angels all had some belief they could make a run at the second Wild-Card spot. While the Angels may have become an afterthought after several injuries, the Mariners and A's have locked themselves into a battle to feature in the AL Wild-Card game.
