CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians have announced that tickets are now available for a Monday tiebreaker game, if necessary.
There are still 3 teams, Indians included, that have a chance to take the two available Wild Card spots. Depending on what happens, a tiebreaker game is a possibility.
There are two scenarios that could make Monday's game a reality:
If Tampa Bay wins one of the final remaining Postseason spots outright, and the Indians and Rangers end up tied for the final spot: The Indians would play host to a Tiebreaker game on Monday.
If Cleveland, Tampa Bay and Texas all end up tied for the final two AL Postseason spots: Cleveland will play host to an American League tiebreaker game against Tampa Bay on Monday.
The loser will play at Texas on Tuesday in a second tiebreaker game, with the games' winners playing on Wednesday in the American League Wild Card Game.
Fans who buy tickets will get a refund if the game is not played.
