According to ESPN, if there’s a three-team tie for both wild-card spots, each team will be given a letter designation. Team A would host Team B on Monday and the winner is one wild-card team with the loser going to play Team C to determine the second wild-card team. If there’s a three-team tie for the second wild-card spot, the letter designations come into play again but the winner of Team A and Team B would play Team C.
There could be a four-team tie for two wild card spots, which means the Red Sox and Yankees lose their games Sunday and the Blue Jays and Mariners win. Team A would face Team B and Team C would play Team D with the winners going on to play in the AL wild-card game.
