The Summer Score – Updated for September 18, 2021

Jeff Chiu – AP

We are at that time of the year where a win here or a loss there could be the difference between playing deep into the fall or not… and making a big Summer Score for some teams a source of frustration of what could have been.

Every team in position for a playoff spot in September gets 4 points for each day. Each team that is within 1 game of a playoff spot will get 1 point.

The Rays, White Sox, Astros, Yankees and Red Sox all added to the Summer Score from the AL. The Blue Jays get a point for being 1 game out.

The Braves, Brewers, Giants, Dodgers and Cardinals added from the NL. The Reds get a point for being 1 game out.
