Settling for a wild-card berth? Yankee dont play that.
Both the Yankees and Orioles clinched at least a wild-card spot with Sundays results, but as they remain tied for the American League East lead, the Yankees made it clear where their focus lies.
"This team wants to win a division," outfielder Nick Swisher said. "That's it. I don't ever think in the history of Yankee baseball we've shot for the wild card. That's not how we get down over here. This city, this team expects to win and that's what I expect us to go out and do."
The Yankees finish with a series at home with the Red Sox, and Swisher said he expects to see a motivated Boston team.
Nothing would make their season more, he said. I am juiced up, and I know The Bronx will be crazy.
This series could be the last games at Yankee Stadium this season. The Yankees arent assured of hosting the one-game wild-card playoff. If the Orioles and Yankees finish tied for the AL East, the one-game playoff for the division would be in Baltimore.
It was only a mere three weeks ago that Francesco Molinari closed with a final round 62 en route to a dominant eight-shot victory at the 2018 Quicken Loans National.
On Sunday, his eight-under total was good enough for a two-shot win over Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele.
The 35-year-old played his final round alongside Tiger Woods, who shot a 5-under-par 66 in Saturday's third round that left him at 5 under through 54 holes and four shots back of the leaders. His 66 was his first weekend round in the 60s in the Open since 2007.
The 14-time major winner had to settle for a closing round of 71 on Sunday. It was his first Open since missing the cut at St. Andrews in 2015.
Molinari continues to be one of the world's hottest golfers, notching his third win in the last five starts.
Some of golf's best weighed in on Sunday:
When it was all said and done, on a day that featured difficult Carnoustie wind conditions, Francesco Molinari emerged victorious hoisting the Claret Jug.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Outfielder Brian Goodwin has been acquired by the Kansas City Royals from the Washington Nationals for minor league pitcher Jacob Condra-Bogan.
The 27-year-old Goodwin hit .200 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 48 games for the Nationals this season. He bruised his left wrist diving for a ball and did not play from April 15 until May 15, when he had two at-bats. He went back on the disabled list, returned June 1 and is hitting .171 (7 for 41) since.
Condra-Bogan, 23, went 1-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 16 relief outings with Lexington of the South Atlantic League and one appearance with Wilmington of the Carolina League, also Class A.
The trade was announced Sunday.
