A lot happened last night. The Yankees reached 100 wins for the second consecutive season, and the Bombers clinched the AL East division title for the first time since 2012. Champagne was popped in the club house and the celebration was seen all over social media. With the magic number down to zero, the focus now switches toward which team will have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, and that journey starts with the Yankees facing the Toronto Blue Jays at home.

After losing a series against the Blue Jays in Toronto last week the Yankees will look to return the favor against a young talented offensive core that could have a major effect on playoff alignment. Not only do the Blue Jays face the Yankees this weekend, but they will play against the Rays who are looking to lock a wild card spot.

J.A. Happ takes the mound for the Yankees, having shown some promise over his last few starts. Considering Happ is a candidate to start in a postseason game, the Yankees will we be looking for a performances like the ones he had against Boston and Oakland earlier this month.

Here are today’s lineups:

Tonight’s game can be seen on WPIX or Fubo.tv, and heard on WFAN or WADO. First pitch will be at 7:05 PM EST. Lets go Yankees!
