The way the Yankees are playing these days, one wonders if they are going to play in the postseason in October. They now have lost five straight games after losing to the Blue Jays, 6-3, on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees are now a half-game behind the Red Sox for the top Wild Card spot. Boston won its game over the Rays, 2-1 at Fenway Park. Look out for the Blue Jays. They are 1 1/2 games behind the Yankees for the second Wild Card spot.
It was a game where the Yankees had problems hitting the baseball. They went 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position. That one hit came when Brett Gardner hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie the score at 3.
