The Oakland Athletics are going into Yankee Stadium Wednesday night and hope to ruin the potential drama of a postseason series between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.The A's and the Yankees will go at it Wednesday night in the American League Wild Card Game Noah Syndergaard Jersey , and the winner will play the Yankees in an American League Division Series.The Red Sox will host the first two games of the series, and they will also host a fifth game if the series goes that far. The Cleveland Indians and the Houston Astros, the American League's last two participants in the World Series, will meet in the other ALDS. The Astros have the home-field advantage in that series.Postseason ScheduleAmerican League Wild-Card GamesWednesday, October 3, A's at Yankees, 8 p.m. ET, TBSDivision SeriesALDSFriday, October 5, Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 1, TBSFriday, October 5, Indians at Astros, Game 1, TBSSaturday, October 6 Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 2, TBSSaturday, October 6 , Indians at Astros, Game 2, TBSMonday, October 8, Red Sox at Yankees/A's, Game 3, TBSMonday, October 8, Astros at Indians, Game 3, TBSTuesday, October 9, Red Sox at Yankees/A's, Game 4*, TBSTuesday, October 9, Astros at Indians, Game 4*, TBSThursday, October 11 Michael Conforto Jersey , Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 5*, TBSThursday, October 11, Indians at Astros, Game 5*, TBS*If necessaryAll postseason games can be live-streamed on MLB.TV.The Yankees will send Luis Severino to the mound in an effort to shut down the home-run hitting attack of the A's.Severino was one of the best pitchers in the American League through the first half of the season, but he struggled quite a bit after the All-Star Game.However, he closed the season by winning his last two starts, and he had a 19-8 record and a 3.39 earned-run average this season. Severino is looking forward to his starting opportunity in the wild-card game."I just want to win," Severino said, per Coley Harvey of "Whatever happens, if I can go four good innings and then the bullpen comes, that would be great. I just want to win and move up and go to Boston and try to win there."The A's are planning to make this a bullpen game, as Australian-born Liam Hendriks will be the opener. Hendriks had an 0-1 record this season with a 4.13 ERA. Hendriks is not likely to go more than an inning, as he pitched 24 innings in his 25 appearances, eight of which he started.The A's will depend on the slugging of American League home run leader Khris Davis (48 home runs), along with Matt Olson (29 homers), Stephen Piscotty (27 home runs), Matt Chapman (24 home runs) and Jed Lowrie (23 homers).The Yankees depend on the power bat of Giancarlo Stanton , who belted 38 home runs in his first season with the Bronx Bombers. Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks, Didi Gregorius and Miguel Andujar hit 27 homers each for Aaron Boone's Yankees.The winner will play Game 1 of the ALDS at Fenway Park Friday night. The Red Sox are led by MVP candidates Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez, and left-handed ace Chris Sale will get the start.Betts led the American League in hitting with a .346 batting average, and he joined the 30-30 club with 32 home runs and 30 stolen bases. Martinez bashed 43 home runs and drove in an American League-best 130 runs.Sale was troubled by shoulder issues in the second half of the season and his velocity was down in his last start. Still, Sale had a 12-4 record with a 2.11 ERA and 237 strikeouts. The Red Sox are hoping he returns to the form he had in the first half of the season.The Indians are another slugging team capable of wrecking any pitching staff. Jose Ramirez had 39 home runs, 105 RBI and a .552 slugging percentage. Shortstop Francisco Lindor tallied 38 home runs and Edwin Encarnacion blasted 32 homers and knocked in a team-high 107 runs.Corey Kluber is once again the ace of the staff with a 20-7 record, 222 strikeouts, a 2.89 ERA and 0.99 WHIP. He is joined by starters Mike Clevinger, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer.Houston Astros astrosCount 鈥榚m! 鉁?6U3zAfpqlbThe Astros are led by Alex Bregman, who hit a team-high 31 home runs with 103 RBI and a .532 slugging percentage. George Springer added 22 home runs while Jose Altuve battled injuries but still hit .316 with 84 runs scored.Houston's pitching staff is led by Justin Verlander, and he is joined by Dallas Keuchel, Gerrit Cole and Charlie Morton. All four started 30 or more games for Astros manager A.J. Hinch. Mike Clevinger will make his last start of the regular season for the Cleveland Indians on Friday night against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.When and where Clevinger’s next start take place remains to be seen.All that’s known is that Clevinger’s next appearance will be sometime during the Indians’ American League Division Series versus the Houston Astros. That series begins Friday in Houston.Article continues below ...Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco will start the first two games of the Division Series. Clevinger could be used out of the bullpen in those games or, if he doesn’t pitch in either game as a reliever, he will likely start Game 3.That decision has yet to be made by Indians manager Terry Francona and his staff, but Clevinger said he’s ready for whatever role he fills in the postseason.“I don’t know what’s set in stone so far,” Clevinger told “But I obviously want to pitch as much as possible. I’d definitely like to get to start. Whatever (Francona) thinks is best.”Francona has a lot on his plate these days. In addition to setting up his rotation for the Division Series, he has been trying to give some of his position players occasional days off over the last week, but still trying to keep all his players sharp for the team’s third consecutive trip to the postseason.“I’m just trying to balance guys playing,” Francona told “I know people are paying to watch these games. I don’t ever want it to feel like there’s disrespect. So we try to put enough out there and do it at the right time.”Clevinger’s numbers this year are very similar to last year Jeurys Familia Jersey , when he was 12-6 with a 3.11 ERA. This year he is 12-8 with a 3.07 ERA. The biggest difference is his innings pitched: 121 2/3 last year, 193 this year. He is one of four Indians starting pitchers with more than 200 strikeouts — the first time in major league history a team has had four 200-strikeout pitchers.Clevinger’s last start was a no-decision Sept. 22, a 5-4 Cleveland victory over Boston. Clevinger pitched five innings, allowing two runs and three hits, with six strikeouts and five walks. His last start against Kansas City was a 9-3 victory Sept. 4, in which he pitched six innings, giving up one run and three hits, with 10 strikeouts and one walk.In four starts against the Royals this year, Clevinger is 2-0 with a 2.33 ERA. In nine career appearances (eight starts) against Kansas City he is 5-0 with a 2.37 ERA.Kansas City’s Friday starter will be veteran right-hander Ian Kennedy (3-8, 4.59). After missing nearly two months with an oblique strain, Kennedy was activated off the disabled list Sept. 9. He is 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA in three starts since.His last start was a 4-3 victory over Detroit on Sept. 21, when he pitched seven innings, allowing three runs (two earned) and seven hits, with six strikeouts and no walks.His only start against the Indians this year was a good one, a 1-0 win April 7 in which he pitched six scoreless innings on four hits, with eight strikeouts and no walks.In 11 career starts against Cleveland, Kennedy is 3-5 with a 5.34 ERA.
