How the Yankees can clinch tonight (9/30)
If at first (and second) you don’t succeed…
In order to clinch a postseason berth tonight, the Yankees need a win and two of the following three events to occur:
– A Minnesota loss (doubleheader at Cleveland, 4:10 p.m. ET),
– A Houston loss (at Seattle, 10:10 p.m. ET),
– Either a Texas loss (vs. Detroit, 8:05 p.m. ET) OR Los Angeles-AL loss (vs. Oakland, 7:05 p.m. ET).
Regardless of what any other teams do the rest of the season, if the Yankees win two more games, they are guaranteed at least a Wild Card spot.
