It's safe to say that Nationals right-hander Drew Storen has been a dominant pitcher ever since manager Matt Williams gave him the closer's job on Sept. 7. It was a role that had belonged to Rafael Soriano for most of the season.

Danny Hultzen, who missed the season after shoulder surgery, threw well Tuesday in his third instructional league outing of the past few weeks. The left-hander will be shut down until next spring, Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said, addressing a variety of offseason topics.

When the stakes and pressure rise, athletes frequently remind themselves that they're playing the same carefree game they did as youths. For Giants catcher Buster Posey and a couple of his Pittsburgh Pirates opponents, Wednesday night's National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park (5 p.m. PT on ESPN) truly will recall bygone days.

Lloyd McClendon would love to be heading to work at the ballpark on Wednesday instead of flying home to Indiana to begin his offseason, but the Mariners manager knows how far his club came this year and is already brainstorming ways to get better in 2015.

A's pitcher Jon Lester got out of a first-and-third, two-out jam in the first inning of the American League Wild Card Game when he caught Kansas City's Billy Butler in a rundown off of first base and the A's threw out Eric Hosmer at the plate.

Old information is better than no information at all, particularly in a must-win situation such as the National League Wild Card Game. Each team will seek any edge it can find. To that end, Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Chris Stewart told his teammates everything he knew about a former teammate: Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco's starter in Wednesday's showdown at PNC Park.

With manager Bruce Bochy calling outfielder Michael Morse "doubtful" for Wednesday's National League Wild Card Game, the main question regarding the Giants' roster for the do-or-die contest now seems to be just how many pitchers the team will carry -- and who exactly they will be.

With Russell Martin convinced that his balky left hamstring won't keep him out of action and with a left-hander going for the Giants in Madison Bumgarner, the Pirates' starting lineup could write itself for Wednesday night's National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park (8 ET on ESPN).

John Holdzkom is the ultimate definition of an "X factor." The 6-foot-7 right-hander is unfamiliar to opponents and his downhill stuff -- cutter, splitter and palmball -- could be a valuable weapon for the Pirates.

Despite missing the regular-season finale with right hip irritation, Dee Gordon has been cleared for Friday's NL Division Series opener against the Cardinals at Dodger Stadium (3:30 p.m. PT on FS1). He was a full participant in the Dodgers' workout Tuesday and insists the ailment is behind him.

With the Bucs' Andrew McCutchen (the reigning National League MVP) squaring off against Buster Posey (the 2012 NL MVP) of the Giants on Wednesday in the NL Wild Card Game, it will mark the first time two previous NL MVPs squared off in the playoffs since 1992.

The Pirates are unmistakably in familiar territory. They hosted and won the National League Wild Card Game last year against the Reds. While they have a lot of pieces from their 2013 club back with the memorable victory in their memory bank, the Bucs' lineup will look different than it did a year ago.

Jered Weaver has been at his best lately, in the buildup to his long-awaited postseason return. The fastball has been a couple ticks higher, the slider has had a little bit more bite, the command has been sharper, his results have been better.

If the Pirates beat the Giants in the National League Wild Card Game, they will face the Nationals in the NL Division Series. So it isn't an easy path to the World Series for a franchise that hasn't made it that far since -- well, since that 1979 Pirates team kept doing its wonderful thing. But there is something about the 2014 Pirates.

"Another day, another guy." That could be the subhead to another headline Pirates season. It is definitely how the Bucs see themselves, individuals blended into a team. In support of that image, no one player is deemed more vital than another. That might play around the apocryphal campfire, but don't you believe it. Andrew McCutchen is still the engine under this hood.

Jason Grilli, a free agent at season's end, is at best the fourth-most-prominent member of the Angels' bullpen, and everyone in front of him in the pecking order -- closer Huston Street, setup man Joe Smith and seventh-inning guy Kevin Jepsen -- is expected back next season. At this point, though, a chance to be on a winner is more important than a bullpen role for the 37-year-old right-hander.

A postseason start still eludes 14-year veteran Adam Dunn, who was not in the A's starting lineup in Tuesday's American League Wild Card Game, despite the Royals throwing a right-hander in James Shields.

The turning point of the Royals' 2014 season came just after the club had come out of the All-Star break and registered four straight losses. So Raul Ibanez, who was part of the Royals' losing history during his Kansas City stay of 2001-03, figured a players-only meeting was in order.

For both the Giants and Pirates, the 2014 regular season was full of ups and downs, highs and lows. All led to the NL Wild Card Game on Wednesday in Pittsburgh, and both teams couldn't be happier.

The constellations and the pitching schedule aligned perfectly, allowing Giants ace left-hander Madison Bumgarner -- with his 11-4 record and 2.22 ERA in 18 road starts this season -- to start Wednesday's National League Wild Card Game (5 p.m. PT, ESPN) against the Pirates at PNC Park. But the truth is, any big game anywhere is Bumgarner time.

If the Giants are to prolong their bid to win another World Series in another even-numbered year, they'll have to survive with a lineup for Wednesday's NL Wild Card Game that includes Gregor Blanco and Travis Ishikawa, whom have been regarded as platoon players for most of their careers.
