UPDATE: The Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Boston Red Sox 5-4 on Monday night. The Oakland Athletics-Detroit Tigers game will be played at 2:07 p.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday. Comcast SportsNet California will begin pregame coverage at 1:00 p.m. with October Quest.
The Oakland Athletics are one win away from going to the American League Championship Series. Their pursuit may have to wait a little bit longer.
If the Boston Red Sox sweep the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, the A’s and Detroit Tigers will play at 4:07 p.m. instead of 2:07 p.m. Pacific Time. Major League Baseball wants the A’s and Tigers playing in prime time if the other series is over.
The later start time would be better for everyone involved. A lot of Bay Area fans were forced to miss Game Three of the A’s-Tigers series due to a much-too-early start time of 10 a.m. on Monday morning.
The Rays and Red Sox are currently tied in the fifth inning in Tampa Bay.
