With the Mariners losing to the Padres, the Yankees have clinched a playoff berth.

Erik Kratz is the first position player to pitch for the Yankees this season. NYY had two position players do it last season, Mike Ford on Aug.15 vs. Indians and Austin Romine on July 25 vs. Red Sox. Before that it hadn't happened since 2015. Here is the entire list of Yankees position players to have pitched in a regular season game in the Wild Card era (since 1993), per ESPN Stats and Info.

Yankees catcher Erik Kratz took the mound in the 8th inning at Fenway Park with the Red Sox leading 9-1. Kratz finished the inning giving up just 1 hit, a HR to J.D. Martinez. Red Sox 3 outs away from breaking a 12-game losing streak to the Yankees.

Jonathan Holder gave up a solo HR to Bobby Daldec, a single to Jackie Bradley and a base on balls to Michael Chavis to start the bottom of the 7th inning. Red Sox holding on to a 7-1 lead over the Yankees, who are on a 10-game winning streak, and have won 12 consecutive games vs. Boston.

Michael Chavis with his second homer of the game off Deivi García, another tape-measure HR, to give the Red Sox a 6-0 lead as they look to end the Yankees' 12-game winning streak. Last night, the Yankees got their 12th consecutive victory vs. Boston, which tied the franchise record. The Yankees have won 12 straight games vs. the Red Sox and 17 of the last 18 games between the clubs since July 28, 2019.

Red Sox and Yankees both have rookie pitchers on the mound today, Tanner Houck and Deivi Garcia. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, there have been 36 rookie vs. rookie starting pitcher matchups in MLB this season (entering today).

As shown on the TV broadcast, Deivi García has a No. 45 on his belt in honor of Pedro Martínez, the player he idolized growing up. Deivi told me he's never felt pressure and has embraced being compared with one of the all-time greatest.

Last night's 8-0 loss to the Yankees snapped the Red Sox' streak of 68 consecutive games without being shut out (last: 9/11/19 at Toronto) which was MLB's longest active streak.
