Battle for Southern California

After the Dodgers salvaged a win in the last game of the Freeway Series against the Angels -- nevermind where their from -- it's kind of interesting to look at where the three SoCal teams (the aformentioned two plus the San Diego Padres) sit in the standings.
The long and the short of it, is they are all doing very well -- and because of the wildcard system, we could see all three in the playoffs if they keep winning. Despite the Dodgers' recent slide, all three have winning records.
The Angels are in first-place in the American League West by 1.5 games -- and the way Oakland looks leaves the Halos with a real good shot of seeing post-season action.
The two NL West teams -- the Padres and Dodgers -- are a little less comfortable. The reason? Arizona. The revamped Diamondbacks have one of the best records in baseball and look like a real challenger for the full season. Still, both San Diego and Los Angeles have shown flashes of brilliance and if they can sustain that, watch out D-backs!
