The Rays hope to head home on a high note tonight very much alive in the playoff chase, though today can be elimination Sunday if they lose to the slumping White Sox and the A’s beat the Mariners again.

Here are the scenarios as provided by the Rays PR staff:

A Rays loss, or a win by either the Yankees or Orioles, will officially eliminate the Rays from AL East division title race. The Rays were eliminated from the division title last season on Sep 21, latest in club history.

A Rays loss or wins by both the Orioles and Yankees eliminates the Rays from the first Wild Card.

A Rays loss and an A’s win eliminates the Rays from the postseason.

They can remain alive if …

They go 4-0 and three of the following four scenarios happen: Orioles or Yankees go 0-4, A’s go 1-3 or worse and the Angels go 4-1 or worse.

The Rays go 3-1 and the A’s go 0-4 and the Angels go 3-2 or worse.

Got that? Good.

First pitch is 2:05 p.m.

David Price will try to become the first 20-game winner in franchise history.
