COMEBACKS

Time has all but run out on Cincinnati's chances of catching the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central. Through Friday, the Reds were 10 games back with 21 to play. Since division play began in 1969, only eight teams have finished first after trailing by 10 or more games _ and none with so few games remaining. Here are the teams, with their largest deficit and games remaining at that point:
