AT­LANTA >> Detroit was elim­i­nated from play­off con­tention when Julio Te­heran matched a ca­reer high with 12 strike­outs and Fred­die Free­man hit a first-in­ning sac­ri­fice fly that led At­lanta to a 1-0 vic­tory in the last game at Turner Field.

While the Braves fo­cused on send­ing their home of 20 years out in style be­fore mov­ing to a new sub­ur­ban sta­dium in 2017, the Tigers hoped to ex­tend this sea­son with a vic­tory. GIANTS 7, DODGERS 1 >> If it is an even-num­bered year, San Fran­cisco finds its way into the play­offs

San Fran­cisco made it on the fi­nal day of the reg­u­lar sea­son, se­cur­ing the sec­ond NL wild card with a win over Los An­ge­les to com­plete a three-game sweep of their ri­val. CUBS 7, REDS 4 >> Matt Szczur dou­bled home two runs with two outs in the ninth in­ning, and Miguel Mon­tero fol­lowed with a homer as Chicago fin­ished one of its most suc­cess­ful sea­sons with a flour­ish. IN­DI­ANS 3, ROY­ALS 2 >> Fran­cisco Lin­dor hit a go-ahead sac­ri­fice fly in the eighth in­ning, Josh Tom­lin daz­zled in his fi­nal tuneup for the post­sea­son and Cleve­land beat Kansas City. NA­TION­ALS 10, MAR­LINS 7 >> Max Scherzer earned his 20th vic­tory and drove in a ca­reer-high four runs to help Wash­ing­ton beat Mi­ami.

It was his sec­ond 20-win sea­son, and he be­came the sec­ond pitcher to win 20 games for the Na­tion­als since they moved to Wash­ing­ton. TWINS 6, WHITE SOX 3 >> By­ron Bux­ton hit the game’s first pitch for an inside-thep­ark home run and Minnesota beat Chris Sale in man­ager Robin Ven­tura’s fi­nal game with Chicago.
