New York Yankees clinch sixth straight playoff berth on walk-off single, but 'job's not finished'

After Aaron Judge fell a few feet short of a record-tying 61st homer, New York Yankees fans received the best possible consolation prize on Thursday when Josh Donaldson delivered a 10th-inning single to clinch the team's sixth straight playoff berth.

With pinch-runner Marwin Gonzalez at second as the automatic runner, Kaleb Ort (0-2) intentionally walked Gleyber Torres before Donaldson grounded a single just past diving shortstop Xander Bogaerts and into left field, giving the Yankees a 5-4 walk-off win over the Boston Red Sox and another postseason berth.
