Since Cleveland has the best head-to-head record against the other two teams (7-5), the Tribe earned the right to choose to play at Progressive Field on Monday.
Tampa Bay is 7-6 against the Tribe and Rangers, so the Rays chose to visit Cleveland on Monday. The Rangers (5-8 against the other two teams) will host the loser of the Tribe-Rays game on Tuesday.
After one team has lost on consecutive days, the remaining two teams would play on Wednesday in the official AL Wild Card game.
If two of the three teams finish the season in a tie, the team that won the season series would host a one-game playoff on Monday.
