Thursday tiebreaker would be at 4:07 p.m.



A one-game playoff between the Rays and the Red Sox for the wild-card spot would start at 4:07 p.m.  Thursday at Tropicana Field, MLB announced today.

Whichever team wins the wild-card will open AL Division Series play on Friday at 5:07 at either Texas or Detroit. The Yankees will play the late game, which starts at 8:37.

A potential Rays-Red Sox game would start at 4:07 regardless of whether there is also a one-game playoff for the NL spot with the Cardinals and Braves; that game, if necessary, would start at 8:07 Thursday.
