Rays Can Ensure Return To Playoffs Tonight With Help
The Rays can make the postseason for a third consecutive season for the first time in franchise history as early as tonight. In order to guarantee playing beyond October 3, Tampa Bay needs a win tonight over the Blue Jays, a loss by the Oakland A’s to the Seattle Mariners, and either a Red Sox loss at home to the New York Mets or a New York Yankees loss at home to the Texas Rangers.
