For Division Series tickets, there’s a limit of six tickets per order, per game.
The A’s actually lost to the Angels last night, so the gap between Detroit and Oakland for the American League’s second-best record is down to a game. Oakland’s magic number is also down to seven now because the Rangers keep losing. At this rate, the A’s might be able to clinch before the Tigers do. Add in Oakland’s remaining schedule — two more at home against the Angels, four against the Twins, three in Anaheim and three in Seattle — and it’s hard to tell which way the second seed is going to go.
This year’s Division Series return to a 2-2-1 format for home-and-road games. The schedule was released last week:
- Game 1: Friday, Oct. 4 (TBS or MLB Network)
- Game 2: Saturday, Oct. 5 (TBS)
- Game 3: Monday, Oct. 7 (TBS or MLB Network)
- Game 4: Tuesday, Oct. 8 (TBS)
- Game 5: Thursday, Oct. 10 (TBS)
If the Tigers get one of the top two seeds, they’ll host Games 1, 2 and 5. If they have the worst record of the three division winners, they’ll host Games 3 and 4.
