The 1948 American League tie-breaker game was a one-game playoff for Major League Baseball's (MLB) American League conference. The game took place on October 4, 1948, between the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. It was necessary after both teams finished the season with records of 96-58. This was the first-ever one-game playoff in the American League. The Indians defeated the Red Sox 8-3 in the playoff game, as the Indians scored four runs in the fourth inning and limited the Red Sox to five hits. The Indians advanced to the 1948 World Series, where they defeated the Boston Braves four games to two, giving them their second and most recent World Series championship. In baseball statistics, the tie-breaker counted as the 155th regular season game by both teams, with all events in the game added to regular season statistics.show more
