New York Yankees Top Twins 8-4 In AL Wild-Card Game

The Yankees' strong finish and the resurgence of slugger Aaron Judge have made them the buzz team in the playoffs. That feeling lasted until Didi Gregorius launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the first to tie the game.

Hopefully Sano can get some reps in the cage, the Minnesota Twins can win a big game tonight, and we can all watch Sano with his timing back in place in the ALDS against the Indians! Something you felt, something you could hear.

After the Diamondbacks eliminate the Rockies in the Wild Card Game, the team will hit its stride and power past the Dodgers in four games. Judge dropped his bat, rounded first base and smiled. This wasn't just the sound of hope at the Stadium.

"It was extraordinary, " Judge said of the 49,280 fans. "And think about it, we didn't use some really good guys".

"All of a sudden, everything you worked for in the top of the first is vanished", said Molitor, via YES Network.

Did I say no team plans on taking out a starter that early?

For obvious reasons, the bullpen is the story of the Wild Card Game for the Yankees.

Tanaka, who played light catch Wednesday, will be making his first postseason start in two years and his second overall. The Yankees' eventual 8-4 win was blessedly undramatic, thanks to their stifling bullpen, and the cheering from the sold-out stands was nearly forgiving toward the Twins, who had scared us so badly at the start. But they did that against the Twins.

And so it was Chad Green, boasting the best ERA of any of the Yankees' vaunted relievers, who escaped a second-and-third, one-out jam to clean up Severino's mess.

The winners of the respective league championship series will meet in the World Series, which gets underway October 24.

Are the Yankees a better team than the Twins? In only three of those games did he go less than six innings. Robertson got the win. David Robertson was credited with the win, and Aroldis Chapman closed the door in a non-save situation by striking out the side in the ninth. The Twins went home. The Yankees celebrated their way off the field and destroyed their clubhouse with gallons of champagne before packing their bags for Cleveland. However, none of them have been as successful at home as the Yankees have been.

Even though they moved on without Betances getting on the mound, with just one day off before Game 1, Girardi may have no choice but to go back to Betances in Cleveland.

With that said, on any given day, an Major League Baseball team can beat any other - and for a while, it seemed like the Twins had a good chance. But he finally did.

The Twins had jumped him in his mid-September starter for three runs as well, but that took three innings rather than four batters. He got to 52.

Altuve is a wonder and a joy to watch, not just because of his size, just because there is so much to his game. He understands that he's a leader, and how he plays, he just never gives an inch.

"We have a wonderful mix down there", Girardi said.

Judge exploded out of the blocks early in the season but slowed down markedly after he won the 2017 Home Run Derby at Marlins Park in Miami on July 10. That matters when the Yankees matter.
