Atruggles http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-mark-trumbo-jersey, the New York Yankees are headed back to the postseason following a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles in 11 innings Saturday.The Yankees celebrated the playoff berth on Twitter:New York Yankees YankeesThe New York Yankees are Postseason bound. pG0lWDNgaVNew York's clinching win came in dramatic fashion, as outfielder Aaron Hicks scored shortstop Didi Gregorius on a walk-off RBI double.While the Boston Red Sox beat the Yanks 11-6 on Thursday to clinch the AL East crown, Saturday's win guarantees that New York will play in the American League Wild Card Game.It has yet to be determined who the Yankees will face in that game and where it will take place, but they currently own a two-game lead over the Oakland Athletics, who lead the Tampa Bay Rays by seven games for the second wild-card spot.The Bronx Bombers started the season scalding hot and entered the All-Star break a sterling 62-33 thanks to a power-packed lineup headlined by 2017 American League Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge and 2017 National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton.During that stretch, the Yankees ranked third among all MLB teams in runs scored (493), first in home runs (161) and tops in slugging percentage (.463) as youngsters Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres made leaps ahead of schedule.However Chris Tillman Jersey, New York's torrent pace didn't last forever.The Yankees closed out July an unremarkable 15-10, and they finished just four games above .500 (17-13) in August as the Red Sox ran away with the American League East. Not surprisingly, the regression coincided with Judge's trip to the disabled list because of achip fracture in his right wrist.Plus, the Yankees' starting rotation hasn't been able to pull its weight with a cumulative ERA of4.05that ranks15thamong all Major League clubs.Most notably, that figure has been hurt by Luis Severino's backslide over the past few months.Although Severino earned his second straight All-Star nod by posting a 2.31 ERA and 14-2 record before the Midsummer Classic, he has largely been a liability since.Over11second-half starts, the24-year-old is 4-6with a5.74ERA.Once considered the Yankees' most reliable and overpowering ace Eddie Murray Jersey, Severino now looks like a dicey starting option in a do-or-die wild card setting.The same can't be said of Masahiro Tanaka, who has been one of the Yankees' few bright spots entering the home stretch with a2.62ERA across11second-half starts.Don't be surprised if Tanaka takes the hill when October rolls around as the Yankees hope to extend their playoff lives and make a second straight trip to the ALDS.While New York still needs to lock in the No. 1 wild-card spot to ensure a home game in the wild-card round, it can now start looking ahead with the intention of setting up its rotation and resting its bullpen in anticipation of the win-or-go-home contest. NEW YORK — On Thursday afternoon, New York Mets pitcher Corey Oswalt had his exit interview with manager Mickey Callaway and the coaching staff. But he’ll get one more opportunity to impress his bosses Friday night, when Oswalt will look to end an interesting rookie campaign on a high note as he takes the mound for the Mets in the opener of a season-ending three-game series against the Miami Marlins at Citi Field.Oswalt (3-3, 6.08 ERA) is scheduled to oppose the Marlins’ Jose Urena (8-12, 4.07 ERA) in a battle of right-handers.The Mets won the rubber game of a three-game series with the Atlanta Braves Thursday Kevin Gausman Jersey, when Jason Vargas tossed seven scoreless innings in a 4-1 victory. The Marlins were off Thursday following a 9-3 loss Wednesday to the Washington Nationals, who swept the three-game set.Article continues below ...Oswalt will be making his 17th appearance and 12th start in a season in which he’s made six different trips to the majors. He is finishing the season in the rotation in place of Zack Wheeler, who was shut down due to innings earlier this month. This will be the fourth straight start for Oswalt, who took the loss last Saturday after allowing two runs over five innings as the Mets fell to the Nationals, 6-0.While Oswalt has fared far better as a starter (4.91 ERA) than a reliever (12.54 ERA), Callaway has been impressed with his ability to adapt to an unfamiliar role. The Mets (75-84) have five starters under contractual control, so it is likely Oswalt http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-jonathan-schoop-jersey, who made just six relief appearances in 97 minor league games, will once again fill a swingman role at the start of 2019.“It’s not an easy task,” Callaway said Thursday afternoon. “We actually had our exit meeting with him today to talk about that, and that was kind of the main subject of it. ‘Hey, look, you’re going to come in next year and it might be the same way. So, you can embrace it and do the best you can and overcome it to put yourself in a position at some point to be able to stay every single day Zach Britton Jersey, or you can let it affect you.’ He’s done a great job of overcoming it and showing us what we need to see.”The Marlins (62-96) have also seen plenty this season out of Urena, who will make his team-high 31st start and needs to record six outs Friday to break his previous career-high for innings pitched (169 2/3).Urena has been especially impressive over his last six starts, a stretch in which he’s gone 5-0 with a 1.85 ERA and allowed one run or fewer five times. That includes last Saturday’s start, when he earned the win in the Marlins’ 5-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds by tossing 5 2/3 scoreless innings before exiting with a sore right thigh.“He’s been aggressive in the strike zone,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly told reporters afterward. “He’s been keeping the ball down. It doesn’t look to me a whole lot different — he kind of always pitches the same way.”Oswalt is 0-1 with a 9.35 ERA in two starts against the Marlins in his rookie season.Urena is 4-5 with a 3.56 ERA in 13 appearances (nine starts) against the Mets. That includes a 1-2 record with a 4.32 ERA in three starts against the Mets this year.
