The Yankees need ONE win to lock up a playoff spot and tonight at home versus the Red Sox Masahiro Tanaka returns to the mound to try and get it. Let's be clear though, tonight is way more about October 6th then tonight. The Yankees would love to lock it up and begin the preparation for the postseason  but tonight is to see if Tanaka can take the mound and win on October 6th.

The Yankees need to win the one game Wild Card on October 6th to punch their ticket to the Divisional round of the playoff.
