Forget the tiebreaker scenarios and hopscotching across the country just in order to play one win-or-go-home wild-card game.

The Indians by beating the Twins on Sunday 5-1 behind 13 strikeouts by Ubaldo Jimenez and Nick Swisher's early-strike home run have earned two days off before playing that wild card game Wednesday night at Progressive Field at 8:07 p.m.

The Indians who finished the season with 10 straight wins are expecting a sellout crowd. Close to 35000 tickets have already been sold.

The Tribe's wild card opponent will be Tampa Bay or Texas. Tampa Bay defeated Toronto 7-6 on Sunday. Texas defeated the Angels 6-2 and will host the Rays Monday night in Arlington Texas.

The winner comes to Cleveland on Wednesday night to face a team that went 21-6 in storming through September.

Jimenez (13-9 3.30) was masterful in pitching the Indians into the postseason for the first time since 2007. He matched a career high with 13 strikeouts while allowing one run in 6 2/3 innings.

After allowing a leadoff single to Alex Presley to start the game Jimenez retired 17 straight before allowing another base-runner. Manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Mickey Callaway juggled the rotation a couple of weeks ago to make sure Jimenez would start the last game of the season and the juggling paid off.

In retiring 17 straight Jimenez struck out 10 including five straight before walking Presley with two out in the sixth. Brian Dozier followed Presley with a single but Jimenez struck out Trevor Plouffe to end the inning.

He came out for the seventh and struck out the first two batters he faced but Chris Herrmann Clete Thomas and Eric Fryer singled in succession to end Jimenez's shutout and his day's work.
