The Rays and A's will play today in the AL wild card game with the winner advancing to the division round to face the Astros with that series opening Friday in Houston. Awaiting for them will be a trio of aces in Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole and Zack Greinke, likely in that order. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, "this is a rotation that's second to none." Houston will take a 107-and-55 record into the postseason.
