Magic number down to 1 for playoff spot

The Tigers were beaten 2-0 by the Twins. So the Yankees now have a magic number of 1 to clinch a playoff berth.

The wild-card standings
Yankees 90-66
Tigers 85-72 -5.5
Mariners 83-72 -6.5

One Yankee victory eliminates the Tigers and Mariners.

With the Angels, Indians and Red Sox already in the tournament, it’s just a matter of jockeying for seeding now.

One question I want to try and get answered tomorrow is when the Yankees plan to celebrate. You can’t really wait to see if you win the division, so I would guess they celebrate the next win and leave it at that.
