This is the flaw of the wild-card game. Pirates weren't eliminated until the final day, burned their ace. Giants were eliminated a few days prior, saved their ace. The Giants will win this game in large part because they were chasing a better team. One year this is going to happen where an 85-win team eliminates a 100-win team because of this.

But it does at least add to the need to try to win the division and keep that race interesting.
