After dropping Games 1 and 2 in the Bronx, the Twins are on the brink of elimination at home and have to feel completely deflated.
They held a 2-0 lead in Game 1, but have been outscored 18-4 since then, dropping their 14th and 15th consecutive postseason games in the process – a new Major League record.
What’s more, is that 12 of those 15 losses have come against the Yankees – who are one win away from eliminating the Twins in the playoffs for the fifth time. The Twins’ last playoff win against the Yankees came in 2004.
Will Minnesota spend the entire offseason thinking about this ignominious streak, or can they finally get off the schneid and beat the team that has repeatedly tormented them in the playoffs?
