Rangers to host three-way tie-breaker

Major League Baseball has announced the tie-breaking procedures for the Wild Card race. The formula is complicated but here are the three basic scenarios involving the Rangers, Rays and the Indians

If there is a three-way tie between the Rangers, Rays and Indians then….

The Indians and Rays will play on Monday in Cleveland… the winner is in the Wild Card game on Wednesday. The loser plays the Rangers in Texas on Tuesday. The winner of that game also advances to the Wild Card game on Wednesday.

If the Rangers and the Indians tie for the second best record…the Rangers have to go to Cleveland for a playoff game on Monday. The winner goes to Tampa Bay for the Wild Card game on Wednesday.

If the Rays and the Rangers tie for the second best record, the Rays come here on Monday for the tie-breaker game. The winner goes to Cleveland for the Wild Card game on Wednesday.

The Rangers won their season series against the Rays but lost their season series against the Indians.
