The ranking changes after you sleep. Three teams are waging war between one game. The battle for the American League wild card in Major League Baseball is approaching. The Toronto Blue Jays, of which ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin belongs, and the Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers of the American League West Division are engaged in a fierce battle.안전놀이터
It is difficult to look ahead even an inch. Recently, Texas gained momentum by winning four consecutive games against Toronto on the road. But like a lie, they lost 4 times in a row. Toronto rebounded. They won all three consecutive games against the Boston Red Sox of the same American League Eastern Division and rose to second place in the American League Wild Card. Seattle infiltrated between them and ranked tied for third place, shoulder to shoulder with Texas.
Wildcard 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places get tickets to the fall festival. 1st place is virtually certain. Currently, the Tampa Bay Rays are in first place. They are a whopping 9.5 games ahead of second-place Toronto. Tampa Bay aims to win the American League East Division. They are trailing the Baltimore Orioles by 2.5 games. In any case, there is a strong possibility that the number one wild card will be either Tampa Bay or Baltimore.
Three teams compete for 2nd and 3rd place. The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, ranked 4th and 5th, are 6 games and 7.5 games behind Seattle and Texas, tied for 3rd place. In fact, Toronto, Seattle, and Texas are fighting for two tickets. All three teams have 12 games remaining. It is expected that there will be a fierce battle until the end.
If we have to be honest, Toronto has a bit of an advantage. Currently, they are posting the best record with 83 wins and 67 losses. You can win a wild card just by maintaining your current ride. The remaining game schedule is also better. Six games will be played against Tampa Bay and six games against the Yankees. Of course, competing against teams from the same district is not easy. However, Tampa Bay has already confirmed its advancement to the postseason, and the Yankees are lacking in strength this season.
Seattle and Texas face each other seven times in a life-or-death situation. They will play a 3-game series at home in Texas from the 23rd to the 25th, and a 4-game series at home in Seattle from the 29th to the 2nd of next month. There is a high possibility that the team that will advance to the fall festival will be determined in the seven rounds of competition. It is very fortunate that Toronto has a schedule that makes it difficult to beat Seattle and Texas at the same time. If they steadily accumulate wins, it is highly likely that at least one of Seattle and Texas will fall below.
