MLB.com broke the playoff scenes. The Yankees and Red Sox have received at least one guarantee that they will play each other in a potential tiebreaker. If both teams win on Sunday, they will win the first two wild card spots. The Yankees will host the Red Sox wild-card game. A loss for these two groups can make things messy.
A win for the Blue Jays with a Yankees or Red Sox rate to get a chance at the wild-card spot would create a tiebreaker game on Monday. The Mariners have to win and lose by the Yankees or the Red Sox to be a potential tiebreaker game.

According to ESPN, if there are three ties for wild-card spots, each team will be given a letter. Team A will welcome Team B on Monday and the winner will be a wild-card team with the loser to determine the second wild-card team to play Team C. If there is a three-team tie for the second wild-card spot, the letter names are valid again but the winner of Team A and Team B will play Team C.
There could be a four-team tie for the two wild card spots, meaning the Red Sox and Yankees lost their games on Sunday and the Blue J and Mariners won. Team A will face Team B and CC will play Team D to play AL wild card games with the winners.
The Giants and Dodgers could have Game 163 on their schedule. Both teams have made it to the playoffs but both are still fighting for the Western Division of the National League. The Dodgers entered a game behind the Giants on Sunday. San Francisco could have a win but if they lose and Los Angeles wins, the two teams will play Game 163 on Monday and the losers will play the NL Wild Card game.
