Well damn! 10,000 wins is alot of games but what else would you expect from possibly the most recognized franchise in all of sports. The Bronx Bombers clinched a playoff spot for the first time in three years and the 52nd time overall Thursday night, beating the Boston Red Sox 4-1 at Yankee Stadium. The same win also gave them their 10,000th win as a franchise in the regular season.


The Yanks clinched the American League wild card spot with the victory. All they need to do is win just one of their remaining three games to get home field advantage for the wild card game against the Houston Astros.

Carlos Beltran, Greg Bird and Robert Refsnyder hit solo homers for the Yankees, who guaranteed themselves an AL wild-card spot with their 87th victory of the season.

CC Sabathia allowed a run and six hits over five innings on a stormy night at Yankee Stadium, but it was Adam Warren who was the pitching star, following with three scoreless innings to put Dellin Betances in position to close in the ninth.

On April 23, 1903, the New York Highlanders beat the Washington Senators, 7-2, in Washington. That was win No. 1 for a franchise that 10 years later would become the Yankees, going on to 27 championships’ worth of glory.

In the history of Major League Baseball, only the Giants, Cubs, Braves, Dodgers and Pirates have won at least 10,000 games (the Reds and Cardinals franchises have more than 10,000 victories each, but those recorded in the American Association, which predated the National League, aren’t counted toward their MLB totals). Now you can add the Yankees to that list!
