Yankees won't make postseason

-A A +A

NEW YORK (AP) — The end came quietly for this year’s New York Yankees. No celebrations. No titles. No October baseball.
Curtis Granderson was batting in the eighth inning Wednesday night when the Cleveland Indians completed a 7-2 win over the Chicago White Sox. And with that, the Yankees were mathematically eliminated from postseason contention in the middle of the season’s final week, even before they finished an 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
New York failed to make the postseason for the first time since 2008 and for only the second time in 19 years. Mariano Rivera will be in the bullpen Thursday night for his final game at Yankee Stadium — he’ll be there in a regular season game with nothing at stake for New York, rather than on the postseason stage where he solidified his credentials as the greatest relief pitcher ever.
“I’ll be there for the fans. They deserve it,” Rivera said. “But it don’t mean anything. I’m not used to pitching for something that doesn’t mean anything. I wanted to pitch for something that means something.”
Evan Longoria homered twice as the Rays won their sixth straight and lowered their magic number to 3 for clinching an AL wild-card berth.
