If the regular season ends and two teams have the same record and are tied for the Wild Card, they go to a one game playoff, where the winner advances into the post season and the loser is eliminated from the playoffs.

What if there's a tie with mlb wild card teams?

What is the MLB tie-breaking procedure when two wild card teams finish the regular season with the same win-loss record and winning percentage?

MLB conducts a coin toss prior to the conclusion of the season. All teams who have the possibility of being the wild card (or the possibility of a tie for division winner) are included and all possible scenarios are covered. The team winning the coin toss hosts a one-game playoff to see which team advances as the wild card, or which team wins the division, if that is the case. If two teams are tied for thhe division lead, and also tied with a team from another division for the wild card, the two teams tied for the division lead will have their tie-breaker game played first. The winner of that game is the division champ, and the loser of that game plays a one game tie-breaker against the team from the other division to determine the wild card.

What is the MLB tie-breaking procedure when two teams from the same division finish the regular season with the same win-loss record and winning percentage?

If teams from the same division finish the regular season in a tie, they play a one game playoff to determine the division championship. The exception is if the other team would make the postseason as a wild card. In that case the team with the better head to head record wins the division and the other team takes the wild card.


How are the MLB playoffs pairings decided?

In each League, the division winner with the highest win percentage will play the wild card team, and the two remaining teams will play each other. The exception is when the division winner with the highest win percentage is in the same division as the wild card team, in which case the division winner with the second highest win percentage will play the wild card team, and the two remaining teams will play each other. If more that one team has the highest win percentage, a tie-breaker system will be used to determine which team shall play the wild card team.
