The Yankees have four games remaining on the regular-season schedule -- one more with Phil Hughes on the mound in Toronto on Sunday, their final road game of the year, and then a three-game series at Yankee Stadium against the Red Sox.
"You've got to find a way to put today behind you, go out and swing the bats tomorrow, score a bunch of runs, give Hughesy run support and win a game," manager Joe Girardi said.
The Orioles will wrap up their home schedule on Sunday, then travel to Tropicana Field, where they will play Games 160-162 against the Rays.

This is how the teams would match up: Postseason Bracket »
To calculate a team's magic number, take the number of games it has remaining and add one. Then subtract the difference in the number of losses between that team and its closest pursuer.
A tiebreaker game will be played to determine a division winner, even if the tied clubs are assured of participating in the postseason. If a division championship tiebreaker is necessary, the head-to-head record between the clubs will determine home-field advantage. If the head-to-head record is tied, then the division record will be the next tiebreaker.
If two clubs are tied for the two Wild Card berths, home-field advantage will be determined by the head-to-head record between the clubs. If the head-to-head record is tied, then the division record will be the next tiebreaker.
