Rays, Rangers to face off in wild-card tiebreaker

The Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers are pushing this regular season to game No. 163.

On a Sunday punctuated by Miami’s Henderson Alvarez pitching a no-hitter, Tampa Bay and Texas both had victories and wound up level, forcing a tiebreaker for the second AL wild-card spot.

The Rays will play at Texas on Monday night, with the winner visiting Cleveland on Wednesday night in another all-or-nothing matchup.

Rangers rookie Martin Perez starts against reigning AL Cy Young winner David Price. Texas gets a boost, too - All-Star slugger Nelson Cruz will be active after his 50-game penalty from Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis drug scandal.
