The Padres had lost 10 straight games before beating the Dodgers 4-2 on Monday night.

All season long, people have doubted whether the Padres would be able to hold onto their lead in the division, and with the Padres taking two-of-three from in the most recent match-up, the Giants now have some work to do if they hope to be playing in October.

MLB: Five Players Who Will Decide What Team Is the AL Central Champion

After shellacking the Chicago White Sox 12-6 on Tuesday night, the Minnesota Twins have moved into first place in the AL Central by one game.
