Yankees in the playoffs

With a victory in the first game of the day/night double header, the New York Yankees have clinched a playoff spot for the 16th time in the last 17 years. Eduardo Nunez hit the game-tying homerun off of James Shields to lead off the 8th, then Cano drove in two a few batters later with a double to wall. Rivera came in a closed out the 4-2 victory for his 603 career save. With a win in the night game and a Red Sox loss, the Yankees will clinch the American League East.
