MLB AL DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS: Texas takes on Tampa Bay


The 2011 MLB playoffs begin today and tonight with the American League teams starting first.

The Divisional matchup has the Texas Rangers playing the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Rays did the unbelievable, trailing Boston by nine games and captured the final playoff on the final day.

Tampa Bay also rallied from a seven-run deficit to beat the New York Yankees in game 162, on pinch-hitter Dan Johnson’s solo homer with two outs in the ninth inning.

Then Tampa Bay won in the 12th inning on Evan Longoria’s homer to clinch the AL wild card spot, as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3.

The Boston Red Sox held a nine-game lead in the wild-card race on September 3, but went on a 7-19 slump to lose the playoff spot to the Rays.

Thus, the Red Sox became the first team to miss the postseason after leading by as many as nine games for a playoff spot entering the month of September, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

The Bosox went the entire month of September without winning consecutive games.
