The Nationals swept the Cardinals in the NLCS Tuesday night and now await the winner of the Astros/Yankees series. The Astros lead that series 2 games to 1. Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today.
The Twins lost 5-1 Monday night in Game 3 of the ALDS at Target Field to the Yankees. The Yankees win the series 3 games to none. The Twins become the first team to win 100-plus regular season games and to be swept in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
The Twins open the ALDS at New York against the Yankees Friday at 6:07pm, pregame on WJON at 5:00. The Twins won just 2 of the 6 games played against the Yankees this season including winning 1 of 3 in New York this season.
The Twins coughed up a 8-2 lead in the 4th inning and lost 14-12 in 10 innings at home against the New York Yankees Tuesday night. Former Twin Aaron Hicks made a diving catch with the bases loaded in the 10 inning to end the game. Gleyber Torres singled in the go-ahead run in the 10 inning to put the Yankees up for good.
The Twins won the first game of a 3-game series at home against the New York Yankees Monday night 8-6. The Twins turned a triple play in the first inning started by 3rd baseman Luis Arraez before getting back to back home runs in the bottom of the first inning from Jorge Polanco and Nelson Cruz to take a 2-0 lead.
The Twins have now lost 6 games in a row after falling 7-4 at New York to the Yankees Wednesday night. Miguel Sano hit a 1st inning 2-run home run but the Yankees came back with 4 runs in the 3rd inning.
The Twins behind a 6-run 2nd inning defeated the New York Yankees 6-1 Wednesday to capture the rubber game of the 3-game series. Zack Granite had a 2-run single before Miguel Sano hit a 3-run home run for Minnesota.
