Yost talked about how his team battled back from deficits of 4-0 and 5-2 in that game, then added: "Plus, it is early, but the teams in your division are losing right now so that's good, too. It keeps your cushion."On the other hand, the team that leads on Memorial Day doesn't necessarily go to the Series. In 1982, Baltimore (the team that almost overhauled the Brewers at season's end) was at a Cubs-like 21-22, and in 1957 the still-in-Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers as well as the Reds were ahead of the Braves.
