So!

Padres - Won yesterday and today.
Atlanta - Lost yesterday and today.


Before the series, we were three games back from San Fransisco, and two games back from Atlanta. After both San Fransisco, and Atlanta losing, the Padres are now tied with Atlanta and one game back from San Fransisco.
Record

W L
Padres 90 71
Giants 91 70
Braves 90 70



#1) Giants and Atlanta loose tomorrow;

Giants (91 wins)
Braves (90 wins)

The Padres would have 91 wins tied with the Giants with both clinched a playoff berth.

This scenario there would be no "playoff" game and the Division leader would go to the best head-head record.


#2) Giants loose tomorrow and Atlanta wins tomorrow;

Giants (91 wins)
Braves (91 wins)

Padres would be tied with Braves and Giants. If both Giants and Padres eliminate Braves through wild-card tie-breaking procedure - then both would be playoff berth. And there would be no head too head.

If either the Giants or Padres do not eliminate Braves, and they secure the Wild-Card, there would be a one game playoff for the Division.


#3) Giants wins tomorrow and Atlanta looses tomorrow;

Giants (92 wins)
Braves (90 wins)

Than the Padres would be tied with Braves. And the wild-card would be determined by the tie-breaking procedure. IE. best head too head.

#4) Giants and Atlanta wins tomorrow;

Giants (92 wins)
Braves (91 wins)

Padres would be eliminated.




Question: If there is a three way tie, would Atlanta advance? Anyone know the tie-breaking procedure and result of a three-way tie?

If there is a three way tie, we play the Giants for the NL west crown, then the loser of that game plays Atl for the wild card.

If the Padres and Braves win, there would be a three-way tie between the Padres, Braves and Giants. San Francisco and San Diego would have a one-game playoff for the NL West crown on Monday, and the loser would play the Braves in Atlanta for the wild card on Tuesday.

Resolution of ties in division races


(http://www.baseball-reference.com/about/division_ties.shtml)

Scenario #5: If three Clubs in a League are tied with identical winning percentages at the end of the championship season and two of those tied Clubs are from the same Division and are also tied for first place in that Division and the third tied Club has the highest winning percentage among the second-place Clubs in the remaining two Divisions, the Division Champion shall first be determined by a one-game playoff on Monday, September 29. Any playoff games played to determine a Division champion shall not count in determining which Clubs are deemed tied for a Wild Card designation. Clubs that were originally tied with a Club or Clubs for a Wild Card designation shall still be considered tied.

Example of Scenario #5: The Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals and Florida Marlins all have identical winning percentages at the end of the championship season. The Astros and Cardinals are tied for first place in the NL Central and the Marlins have the highest winning percentage among the second-place Clubs from the NL East and NL West. The Astros and Cardinals would play a one-game playoff on Monday, September 29. The winner shall be declared the Division Champion. Despite the loss, the losing Club would still be considered tied with the Marlins for the lead in the NL Wild Card. Those two Clubs would play a one-game playoff on Tuesday, September 30. The winner of that game shall be declared the Wild Card.

Yahoo is showing these as the likely pitching match-ups:

Philadelphia 97-64 (Road: 45-35) 1:35pm ET
Atlanta 90-71 (Home: 55-25) WPHL, FSS
PHI: C. Hamels (12-11, 3.09)
ATL: T. Hudson (16-9, 2.76)

San Diego 90-71 (Road: 45-35) 4:05pm ET
San Francisco 91-70 (Home: 48-32) Ch4, CSBA
SD: M. Latos (14-9, 2.92)
SF: J. Sánchez (12-9, 3.15)

They are all pretty good. Latos has slumped lately, tho.
