Yankees Notes: 1st Place and More


The Tampa Bay Rays lost last night which puts them in a tie with the Yankees. Both teams have three games left to play, but the Yankees need  a better overall record as the Rays would come out ahead in the event of a tie because they have a better head-to-head record.

Here are some notes:

A big loss for the Rays last night, but they are playing the Royals over their final three games. That gives them a pretty good chance to win the next three. That puts a lot of pressure on the Yankees, they must sweep the Red Sox in order to come out on the top of this division.
