Game 159: Yankees at Blue Jays

Nick Swisher called this “a must win game” for the Yankees, and after yesterday’s deflating 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays, it has to be.

At this point, they all are must-win games for the Bombers, who enter today tied once again with the Orioles for first place in the American League East with just four games remaining on the schedule. New York needs to at least salvage a split of this four-game series at Rogers Centre before heading home to play the Red Sox for three very meaningful games.

In case you’re wondering, if the Yankees and Orioles finished the regular season tied, there would be a one-game playoff held at Camden Yards on Oct. 4 to determine who wins the AL East and who gets the Wild Card. The way things are going, it’s probably best not to rule anything out.

Here are the lineups —

Derek Jeter SS
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher 1B
