I spent most of my Monday evening watching the Rays and Rangers play game 163 of their schedules for the chance to face the Indians in the American League wild card game.


It definitely was an exciting game. Anytime two teams are tied after a 162 game season, you know fans had the opportunity to watch quite a race.
