CLEVELAND (AP) — The Better Business Bureau says Cleveland Indians fans seeking tickets to Wednesday's American League wild-card game against Tampa Bay should be alert to potential scams by fake ticket sellers.

Individual tickets for the game sold out shortly after the baseball team completed its tenth straight win to clinch its first postseason berth since 2007.

The Indians will play Tampa Bay in Cleveland for the chance to face Boston in the division series. The Better Business Bureau says brokers and private sellers are still offering tickets, and excited fans eager to see the game could be easy targets for scams.

The bureau recommends checking its database for reputable brokers and reviews, and purchasing tickets through resellers associated with the original ticket seller or through websites that have secure payment processing systems.
