Cubs lose, drop into tie with Milwaukee. Cubs Nation frets.
Red Sox lose, thanks to GAGné; Yankees just 2.5 back. Red Sox Nation freaks.
Mets lose (again), Phillies close to within 1.5. Mets don't have a nation, but their little borough is getting all twitchy as well.
Royals win! Royals win! And somewhere deep in a desolate forest, a tree falls.
