The Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers will play a one-game tiebreaker on Monday to see which team will head to another sudden-death game in the American League wild-card playoff.
The Rays and Rangers both won on Sunday and ended up even at the end of the 162-game regular season. The two teams will meet on Monday night in Texas, with the winner earning the second wild-card spot and playing at the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.
Cleveland won its 10th straight to clinch its first playoff place since 2007. Ubaldo Jimenez struck out 13 as the Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1 to win the top wild-card slot.
The Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6 and the Rangers beat the LA Angels 6-2. Both teams finished the season 91-71 and will now face a 163rd regular season game for the right to play in the wild-card playoff. The Rangers beat the Rays in the playoff division series in 2010 and 2011.
Yu Darvish struck out eight in the Rangers victory, to finish the regular regular season with a majors-leading 277 strikeouts, the most since Randy Johnson had 290 for Arizona in 2004.
The Cincinnati Reds will play at the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night in the National League wild-card playoff.
In the best-of-five division series, the Los Angeles Dodgers will face the Atlanta Braves and the NL wild-card winner will play the St. Louis Cardinals.
