A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:
MLB • Only three teams in major-league history reached the postseason despite losing as many as 28 of their last 50 regular-season games: the 1976 Royals, who lost the ALCS to the Yankees, and the Cardinals and Tigers this season. The Cardinals had the worst record in the NL Central from July 23 to the end of the season (28-37); the Tigers had the worst in the AL Central from Aug. 2 to the end of the season (24-32).
