Wildin’: Last night, the Jays began a homestand against the NY Yankees — who are currently in the first of two American League (AL) Wild Card spots — and it wasn’t pretty. They were downed 7–2 by the Yankees in front of over 28,000 fans at Rogers Centre. Must’ve been the Yankees’ new pet turtle.

  • They’ll play again tonight and tomorrow, both at 7:07 p.m. ET, before starting their last series of the regular season against the lowly Baltimore Orioles on Friday.

Chillin’: Meanwhile, six other teams have clinched their postseason berths. The National League’s St. Louis Cardinals locked up the second and final NL Wild Card spot with their 17th straight win, while in the AL, the Houston Astros are close to punching their postseason ticket.
