The American League wild-card standings show two teams tied at the top and another one a game back that could wedge itself into a three-day three-game scramble to reach a division series.

The Texas Rangers though are looking only at what they can control. That’s winning ballgames which they did again Friday night by scoring two runs in the seventh inning to knock off the Los Angeles Angels 5-3.

Tampa Bay and Cleveland are tied for the wild-card spots after the Rays lost at Toronto and the Indians won at Minnesota. The Rangers sit only a game back with two games remaining in the regular season.

Don’t look now but Wild-card-ageddon is two Rangers wins and one loss each by the Rays and Indians from happening.

“Hopefully it puts some pressure on them” shortstop Elvis Andrus said. “They can’t lose a game because everyone can tie it up. We just want the opportunity. We want that shot to get there and take it.”

Here’s how a three-way tiebreaker would work:

Tampa Bay would play at Cleveland on Monday. The winner would take a wild-card spot and the loser would play at Rangers Ballpark on Tuesday.

The winner of that game would be the second wild-card team with the head-to-head season series determining home-field advantage for a game Wednesday. In that case the Rangers would host Tampa Bay and play at Cleveland.

The winner of the game Wednesday would advance to play in the ALDS likely at Boston.

That’s Wild-card-ageddon.

The Rangers though have to win Saturday and Sunday to give themselves a chance. Do that and just about anything can happen including winning a wild-card spot outright if things go their way in Toronto and Minneapolis or forcing a Monday tiebreaker with one other team for the second wild card.

“We still have a chance” manager Ron Washington said. “The only thing you can really do is stay focused on what you have to do. What you have to do is go out there and catch the ball when it’s hit to you make pitches when you have to and put runs on the board when you have to.”

Alex Rios and A.J. Pierzysnki drove in two runs apiece Friday including one each in the seventh inning as the Rangers broke a 3-3 tie and four relievers didn’t allow a base runner in relief of Alexi Ogando over the final 3 2/3 innings.
