The Yankees were able to win their 10,000th game as a franchise and do so in style by clinching a Wild Card berth. They defeated Boston by a score of 4-1.
By Corey Aron
Despite losing the first three games of the series, the New York Yankees finally knocked off the Boston Red Sox in the finale and clinch a playoff spot.
Music to my ears, because it’s been two long years.
Yes, two years without making it into the postseason feels like an eternity as a 23-year old Yankees fan. I know what the older folks are saying, “well you should have seen them in the 80s.” Yeah, well winning is so embedded in me that just like Mr. George Steinbrenner would say, it’s World Series or bust.
Some other folks might be saying, “wait a minute, I read your recap last night and you sounded absolutely livid about our New York Yankees.” Correct, I was extremely livid. I’m sort of like Randy Quaid who played the crazy obnoxious fan in the movie Major League.
“Start spreading the news
I am leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York”
No matter what though, I will endure all the pain and agony that’s necessary to see my team fight and earn its way at the pinnacle of the mountain. Again, it’ll be a tall task for this 2015 Yankees to do just that, but it does warm my heart to see cold beer and champagne being splashed everywhere in the Yankees clubhouse.

It’s never professional to sneak in social media acronyms, but LMFAO to John Ryan Murphy.
What a party animal.
He basically photo bombed every player getting interviewed by Meredith Marakovits. To his baseball credit, John did a pretty good job being Brian McCann’s back-up catcher this season. Now the only thing that the Yankees have to worry about is of course who they will be playing in Tuesday’s AL Wild Card game. However, if you thought that tonight was a struggle to get through a rainy outing in the Bronx, the chances of Tuesday’s game panning out weather-wise is pretty slim. If you didn’t know already, we have Hurricane Joaquin on its way and it’s supposed to hit land right around the wee-hours on Tuesday morning. Let’s rejoice for the time being! #Chasefor28
Just broadcast my final home game of the year. Incredibly grateful for the 24 years I’ve been one of the NYY voices. Been living a dream. — Michael Kay (@RealMichaelKay) October 2, 2015
