A huge night for the Rays Friday as they knocked off the Mariners 5-3 while the Red Sox were able to hold off the Yankees 10-8. In Magic Numbers, that translates to shaving one off the Wildcard and two off the Division, more importantly, it means the Rays are back on top of the AL East.
Rays: Wild Card = 3, Division = 9
Yankees: Wild Card = 3, Division = 10
