Anthony Rizzo led the Yankees to a much-needed sweep of the Marlins over the weekend, and while the Yankees were winning in Miami, the Rays were sweeping the Red Sox in St. Petersburg.

The Yankees’ next 10 games against the Orioles, Mariners and Royals are a chance for them to potentially hold a playoff spot by the end of next week.
