Tampa Bay's roster consists of the lowest payroll in the league. Oakland's is not much higher - ranked 25th. Despite this, both teams won at least 96 games to secure their spot in the AL Wild Card game with a chance to play David to the Astros' Goliath. A's starter Sean Manaea (4-0, 1.21 ERA) has been brilliant after returning from left shoulder surgery that left him sidelined since September 2018. Tampa counters with RHP Charlie Morton who won 16 games, sporting a 3.05 ERA.
