Game times announced for potential AL East tiebreaker and Wild Card game

Major League Baseball has announced times for a potential American League East tiebreaker game on Thursday and the AL Wild Card play-in game on Friday.

A potential one-game tiebreaker between the Orioles and New York Yankees would take place at 7:10 p.m. on Thursday night. Of course, the Orioles must defeat the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday and the Yankees must lose to Boston for this game to be necessary.

The Orioles would hold the tiebreaker over New York for home-field advantage due to their superior record against AL East opponents this season.

The AL Wild Card Game will start at 8:37 p.m. on Friday night. Should the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays in the regular-season finale, they are guaranteed to at least host the wild card play-in game. They would then play the Texas Rangers, who fell in Oakland Wednesday.

If Baltimore falls to the Rays on Wednesday, they would go on the road to play the Rangers in Arlington.

The potential AL East tiebreaker game and the AL Wild Card game are both scheduled to be televised on TBS.

Here’s MLB full listing of postseason schedule:
