The Yankees have a magic number of five to clinch the division and could do so this weekend by sweeping the Red Sox.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox have a magic number of three to clinch the wild card, which they also could do this weekend.

The Yankees passed on celebrating a playoff berth on Saturday, deciding they would wait until they wrapped up the division. But the Red Sox, knowing the division is likely out of reach, plan to bust out the bubbly if they clinch.

“Oh, we will … hopefully,” David Ortiz told Ian Browne of “So we don’t have to get our clubhouse dirty. Oh, we have to. Of course. We have to roll like that. That’s how we do it.”

The Red Sox have an eight-game lead on Texas in the wild card. Boston has 10 games left.
