at Philadelphia 4, Washington 3: Jimmy Rollins made a sliding stop with the bases loaded to start a game-ending double play, and the Phillies clinched their second consecutive NL East title and earned back-to-back postseason appearances for the first time since 1980-81.
at New York 2, Florida 0: Johan Santana, pitching on three days' rest, delivered a three-hitter, pulling the Mets, who have won only three of their last eight games, into a tie with Milwaukee for the NL wild card.
Chicago 7, at Milwaukee 3: Ben Sheets (13-9) tried to put aside nagging elbow soreness in his first start since Sept. 17, but he gave up four runs in only 2 1/3 innings. Milwaukee's lineup couldn't manage much of anything against Ted Lilly (17-9), who held the Brewers hitless until Ryan Braun led off the seventh with a double.
Atlanta 11, at Houston 5: Josh Anderson hit two home runs and Jeff Francoeur drove in three runs with a pair of doubles for the Braves.
