Holy Cow! Yanks Clinch AL Wild Card Spot!

I’m shocked. Shocked. The Yanks and Tampa Bay were 0-0 in the bottom of the ninth and Aaron Judge drove in his 98th RBI, as Tyler Wade scored. Yanks win, 1-0.

Fine pitching and clutch defense (like Gio Urshela holding onto a catch that sent him tumbling into the Toronto dugout) gave the Yanks their 92nd win of the year and sends them into an AL Wild Card spot. I’ll take it!

(And they may have swept the Red Sox in their last stint at Fenway Park, but they got a one-game playoff in Fenway on Tuesday. Oy…)
