Thrills await during 20-game sprint to the wire

With 20 games to go, there is plenty of excitement ahead of us on many fronts:

* Savannah and Springfield are tied for first in the South. The winner will take the division; the loser might not even make the playoffs, as they are three games behind the wild-card leaders.

* Iowa and Michigan right now are leaders in the wild-card clubhouse and headed for their first postseasons in their brief franchise histories.

* The North Division has begun to separate, with the South Grand Prairie Warriors opening up a two-game lead and the Applegate Paperclips tumbling below the .500 mark. Margaritaville is in a classic ‘tweener position; the Volcanoes are just 2 behind the division lead; they hold down a wild-card berth at the moment, but could get knocked out entirely with Bismark (1GB) hot on their heels.

Check out how the ‘wild-card’ standings look right now;  the top three teams with the best records apart from the division champions make the playoffs:

DIVISION LEADERS W L Pct. GB
CHATFIELD 94 46 .671
S.GRAND PRAIRIE 76 64 .543
* SAV/SPR 71 69 .507
WILD-CARD RACE W L Pct. GB
IOWA 77 63 .550
MICHIGAN 75 65 .536

* SAV/SPR 71 49 .507 3
