We’re back, baby. After a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday, the Texas Rangers snagged a postseason spot for the first time in seven years.

The team grabbed the second Wild Card spot in the American League playoffs and will take on the AL East runner-up, the Tampa Bay Rays.

The best-of-three-game series will be played at 2:08 p.m. today, tomorrow, and Thursday (if necessary) at Tropicana Field. The winner will take on the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, Oct. 7.

The two teams faced off twice earlier this season, with the Rays winning a series (2-1) in Florida in June and the Rangers sweeping a three-game series in Arlington in July.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on the family affair — Rangers first baseman Nathaniel Lowe’s younger brother Josh is a Rays right fielder.

Watch the games on ABC. It’s on, TBAYtoday.
