It was a long shot, but tonight Escobar had a very weak start for the Angels (going only 1.2 innings) and they lost to Texas 5-2. Oakland won big, 12-3 over Seattle, so the Angels have been eliminated. Had the Angels won, they would have had to win five straight games to force a tie-breaker game.
More importantly, the Dodgers beat Colorado 11-3 with an OK start by Maddux, and the Phillies lost to the Nationals, so the Dodgers are in sole posession of the wild card by 1 game. San Diego won and remains 2 games up on the Dodgers in the NL west.
