Monday is an important day in the baseball world because it features four playoff games. There are two matchups in particular that have caught the eyes of many, and they both reside in the American League.
The Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays will be playing Game 3 of their series at Tropicana Field, while the New York Yankees head west to Target Field to do the same against the Minnesota Twins. The Rays and Twins both find themselves in similar spots, and not just because each squad is finally getting a home playoff game.
Tampa Bay does have a postseason victory under its belt already, but both teams are hoping to avoid a sweep at the hands of their opponent on Monday.
