Rangers, Astros round out 2015 MLB postseason field

Sunday October 4th, 2015

The 2015 MLB postseason field is set.

On Saturday, the Rangers defeated the Angels to win the American League West division title and knock Los Angeles out of the playoffs. Texas handed the last American League wild-card spot to the Houston Astros with the victory.

Because the Astros fell 5–3 to the Diamondbacks, they finished a game behind the New York Yankees in the final standings and will travel to the Bronx on Tuesday for the wild-card game.

Masahiro Tanaka will get the nod for New York against Dallas Keuchel. First pitch is at 8 p.m. ET.

The National League Wild Card Game will be contested between the Pirates and Cubs on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.

The American League Division Series begins Thursday, and the NLDS starts on Friday.
