MLB Standings: A's face Rangers for AL West title, Giants have clinched

The Oakland A's are tied with the Texas Rangers as the two teams face off for the division title on Tuesday afternoon. Both teams still have a shot at the best record in the American League and home field advantage throughout the playoffs, as they are one game behind the New York Yankees and tied with the Baltimore Orioles.

The loser of the A's and Rangers season finale will play in a one-game playoff on Friday against either Baltimore or New York for the chance to advance to the division series. The Orioles face the Rays and the Yankees play the Red Sox on Tuesday. If New York wins, they clinch the AL East and home field advantage.

The Giants have no scenarios in their last game, as they clinched the division long ago and are locked in to the third seed in the National League playoffs. San Francisco is still waiting to see who they will face in the postseason, as the Reds and Nationals come into the last day tied for the best record.
