MLB Playoff Race: White Sox vs YankeesPublished September 24, 2015 by Sol FH
With only weeks before the MLB off-season, teams are vying for a coveted playoff position. Tonight pits the Yankees against the White Sox at 00:05 GMT.
The race for the playoffs is getting tighter with only a few weeks left in the regular season. For the Chicago White Sox, their dreams of making the playoffs have mathematically fallen short this year, but the Yankees are in contention for a playoff spot but they might need to win a Wildcard game if they do not start winning games.
The Yankees host the White Sox tonight at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx and they are in much need of a win this series to clinch a playoff spot. They are coming off a big loss to AL East leaders the Toronto Blue Jays 4-0, and lost the series against the only Canadian team 2 out of 3 games. If the season were to end today, the Yankees would need to host the Astros in the Wildcard game for the last spot in the AL playoffs, while the White Sox will find themselves on the golf course in a matter of weeks.
It has been a fantastic year for Baseball fans, and one that has proven to be historic. For the Yankees, fans and players alike have had a rough few days upon learning that their favorite Yankee, Yogi Berra passed away at the age of 90. Berra was a legend for the Yankees having played for 19 seasons, was an 18 time all-star and helped the Yanks win the World Series ten times.
After losing such a Yankee legend, New York is in mourning and it is being felt on the diamond. After losing 2 out of 3 to the Jays, it is time for the Yankees to bounce back against the White Sox tonight and cement their position in the off-season.
