Today is the last off-day of the regular season. After today, we won't be seeing of those annoying half-games in the standings, at least from the main contenders. After today, the Indians, Rays, and Rangers all have six games left. After today, all three teams could be within one game of each other.
Today's AL Games of Interest:
- Baltimore (-4.5) 4, Tampa Bay (+0.5) 2 - 7th Inning
- Houston at Texas (-1.5), 8:10 PM (Jordan Lyles vs Derek Holland)
- Detroit (+5.0) at Minnesota, 8:10 PM (Justin Verlander vs Mike Pelfrey)*
Well, why not?
Also on TV tonight is MLB Productions' Mission October series, and their subject this week is the Indians. The show airs at 7:30 on Fox Sports 1 (see here for the channel listings on your provider). Here's a sneak preview:
