Rays give ball to Price with season on the line

Posted: Updated:

The Major League Baseball season consists of 162 games. This year, for Tampa Bay and Texas, there is going to be a 163rd.

Tonight in Arlington, Texas, the Rays and Rangers are meeting in a one-game play-in game. The winner advances to the American League wild card game Wednesday night against the Indians in Cleveland.

The Rays and Rangers forced the extra game by both winning yesterday. At the same time the Indians won their game against the Twins, giving them the top wild card seed. Had they lost there would have been a three-way tie for the two wild card berths and a different formula would have been used to decide the two wild card competitors.

As it is, all eyes in baseball will fall on Texas as the Rangers send rookie left-hander Martin Perez against David Price.

The Rangers earned the home field advantage by taking four of the seven games they played this season.
