Going for the postseason clinch

MLB: Miami Marlins at Toronto Blue Jays Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays have a chance to clinch a postseason spot tonight and take another series against the Yankees. Which one is the more significant accomplishment this year? Hard to say.

An on the field celebration would be really lovely, so let’s hope it happens.

Only one roster move prior to today’s game as Wilmer Font has been swapped for Nate Pearson.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Alejando Kirk will DH, Villar gets a start at second, and Biggio will play third again. No Aaron Judge for the Yankees.

Today's Lineups

YANKEES BLUE JAYS
DJ LeMahieu - 2B Cavan Biggio - 3B
