When the Rangers lose to the Guardians, both the Orioles and Rays secure spots in the playoffs.

The Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays secured spots in the playoffs on Sunday in the ninth inning of their game, as the Cleveland Guardians defeated the Texas Rangers.

The defeat of Texas guaranteed that both Baltimore and Tampa Bay would secure at least one wild card spot in the American League.

Baltimore has made it to the playoffs after a gap of three years, since 2016. Tampa Bay, on the other hand, has secured a spot in the postseason for the fifth consecutive year.
