Indians Beat Twins to Clinch American League Wild-Card SpotDex McLuskey
The Cleveland Indians clinched one of the American League’s two wild-card places with a 5-1 win over the Minnesota Twins in their final regular-season game.
The Tampa Bay Rays assured themselves of at least a tie for the other AL wild-card berth with a 7-6 win against the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Rays (91-71) will take the second spot if the Texas Rangers fail to beat the Los Angeles Angels in their final game of the Major League Baseball season today.
A win for Texas would leave them tied with the Rays, setting up a playoff at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, tomorrow to determine which team plays the Indians (92-70) two days later in Cleveland.
