The Yankees came back in dramatic fashion in the first game of their doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday, coming away with the 4-2 win to clinch their 16th playoff appearance in the past 17 years. Eduardo Nunez hit a game-tying homer to lead off the eighth inning, and then Robinson Cano cranked a two-run double to break the 2-2 tie. The Yankees used a total of eight pitchers after Phil Hughes was scratched due to back spasms. With a win in tonight’s game and a Boston loss, the Yankees will clinch the AL East.
