Nobody in baseball wins at a historic rate like the New York Yankees.
The Bronx Bombers clinched their 31st consecutive winning season with a 5-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night.
New York fell behind 2-0 but scored five unanswered runs, all with two outs. Oswaldo Cabrera, Everson Pereira, and Estevan Florial had two-out RBI singles. Gleyber Torres added a two-run single to give the Yankees some breathing room.
Clarke Schmidt allowed two runs over four innings in his final start of the season. Frankie Montas, Greg Weissert, Ian Hamilton, and Clay Holmes posted scoreless outings.
The Yankees will play their final game of the 2023 season on Sunday at 3:10 p.m. Michael King will take the ball.
