The Blue Jays can just about start printing those wild-card playoff tickets after beating the Yankees for a third straight time in a crazy game.

Orioles reclaim second wild-card spot

After Detroit lost Saturday afternoon, Baltimore took advantage in the evening, beating Arizona to work its way back into a playoff spot. Seattle, Houston and New York all lost, hurting their already slim chances.

Who is the next closer on a wild-card contender to have a catastrophic blow-up? On Friday, it was the Astros' Ken Giles, who gave up six runs in the ninth. Today, it was the Tigers' Francisco Rodriguez, who gave up five in the ninth. With the Blue Jays shutting out the Yankees again, it's now looking like the Tigers, Orioles, Mariners and Astros battling for one spot.
