MLB playoffs: Who will stave off elimination Tuesday? [Poll]

October 4, 2011 |  8:00 am


It's going to be a fun day of Major League Baseball postseason play Tuesday, with all four series in action and three of the four featuring elimination games.

In the American League, the Detroit Tigers have a 2-1 series lead over the New York York Yankees, and the Texas Rangers have the same advantage over the Tampa Bay Rays. In the National League, the Milwaukee Brewers are up, 2-0, over the Arizona Diamondbacks. So there's a possibility that the St. Louis Cardinals-Philadelphia Phillies series, tied 1-1, might be the only one still undecided by Wednesday.

Which teams do you think will stave off elimination? Vote in the poll (you can pick more than one team) and leave a comment letting us know why you voted the way you did.
