While the season is now over for the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Houston Astros are about to take on the New York Yankees in a one game playoff. Apparently, the Yankees were happy to see the Astros lose.
Of course, the reason for that is with the D-backs’ win, the Yankees will host the Astros in the American League Wild Card Tuesday.
The Astros had locked up the Wild Card spot against the Yankees as soon as the Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels. Still, the Yankees twitter decided that they enjoyed the end result at Chase Field.
The Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound against Houston’s Dallas Keuchel. The game gets underway Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. from the Bronx.
