Last trip of the regular season: Greetings from Toronto
The Yankees and Blue Jays kick off a four-game series, the Yankees’ final road set of the season, tonight at Rogers Centre. From here, the Yankees will head home for three games at Yankee Stadium against the Red Sox and then … well, who knows for sure?
But if the season ended today, the Yankees would be taking on the Detroit Tigers in the American League Division Series. Here’s the complete playoff picture.
The Yankees head into play tonight with a 1 1/2 game lead over the Orioles and seven games left on the schedule following yesterday’s 8-2 pounding of the Twins at Target Field.
Here are the probable pitching matchups for the series against the Blue Jays:
