The Yankees will be the American League wild card. An 8-4 loss in Boston eliminated any need for scoreboard watching and solidified the postseason schedule. The Yankees will open the playoffs in Minnesota on Wednesday. Dustin Moseley made two mistakes and both were two-run home runs. The bullpen allowed four more runs and the Yankees never got back in the game. The closest they got was stranding the bases loaded in the eighth. Robinson Cano got his 200th hit and Alex Rodriguez got his 125th RBI, but it wasn’t nearly enough.
