The only coin flip regarding the AL Wild Card involved the Twins and the White Sox. Chicago made the right call and would host a playoff at U.S. Cellular Field.
Both of those teams, of course, are still in hot pursuit of the AL Central title and had to flip against the Tigers. Detroit won the flip against the Twins — a source of some comfort since the Tigers just lost three consecutive games in the Metrodome to tighten up the race — but lost to the White Sox.
Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
