Got Clinch? Yanks-Jays Gamer III

The magic number is one. A Yankees win or a Boston loss tonight clinches New York’s ninth consecutive American League East title. Doc Halladay is on the mound to make it challenging as New York is also looking for a three game sweep of the Jays. Shaun Henn is on the mound for New York. Lineups follow. Comment away.

  • Oof. Watching Henn pitch is scary and nerve-wracking.

  • Cripes, Halladay is out of the game…Injured something, although it’s unclear what happened, wasn’t anything obvious. That’s too bad, he’d been pitching great.
