The American League wild card chase has come down to a one day frenzy with three teams vying for two playoff spots.

The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday.

The Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6 thanks in large part to a six-run first-inning rally that chased starter Todd Redmond from the game. The Blue Jays rallied back but the Rays were able to hang on, guaranteeing themselves at least one more game this season.

The Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1, never surrendering an early lead spurred on by a first-inning two-run home run by Nick Swisher.

Cleveland entered with the easiest path to the post-season, with a one-game advantage in the wild card standings. With their victory over the Twins at Target Field, they secured the top wild card spot and home field advantage for Wednesday's wild card playoff game.
