NEW YORK (AP) _ Detroit and Minnesota would be the home teams for any playoff games needed to decide the American League division races, after winning coin tosses conducted by AL President Bobby Brown Tuesday.
The Tigers got the East Division edge over Toronto, and the Twins won the toss for the West home site against Oakland. Additional coin tosses will be held later if other teams move into contention.
Single game playoffs, if necessary, would be held Monday Oct. 5.
