MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins announced single game playoff tickets for a potential American League wild card series will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

The Twins hold a nine game lead in the AL Central.

Assuming the Twins finish the regular season with the third best record of the three AL division winners — they are four games back of the Houston Astros with nine to play — the team will host the best-of-three wild card series beginning Oct. 3.

If Minnesota passes Houston in the regular season standings, the Twins would advance directly to the divisional series.
