The New York Yankees can clinch a Wild Card and also home field advantage on Saturday.
The New York Yankees almost got it done, but their ninth-inning rally fell short in a 4-3 loss. The team will have to wait another day before clinching a Wild Card spot, but now they’ll have to beat Tampa Bay Rays pitching prospect Shane Baz.
New York still holds the top AL Wild Card spot and leads the Boston Red Sox by a single game. However, the Toronto Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners aren’t out yet and trail the second spot by one game each.
