New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Veteran umpires Gerry Davis and Joe West will serve as crew chiefs for this week's wild-card games, MLB announced on Monday.

Davis, who has umpired a record 122 postseason games, will work Tuesday's AL wild-card game in Kansas City between the Oakland Athletics and Royals along with James Hoye, Dan Iassogna, Bill Miller, Todd Tichenor and Bill Welke.

West, the league's most veteran umpire with 37 years of service, will work Wednesday's game between the San Francisco Giants and Pirates in Pittsburgh alongside Doug Eddings, Paul Emmel, Andy Fletcher, Brian Gorman and Mark Wegner.
