Ervin Santana (16-8, 3.28) will start the game for the Twins (85-77) vs. Luis Severino (14-6, 2.98) for the Yankees (91-71).The Minnesota-New York winner meet top-seeded Cleveland in a division series beginning Thursday.
Twins star Joe Mauer remembers well all those October losses to the Yankees. So too, surely, do Minnesota’s fans.Around the rest of the Twins clubhouse, though, it may as well be ancient history.
Back in the playoffs for the first time in seven years, Mauer and upstart Minnesota will face New York in the AL wild-card game Tuesday night hoping to turn around what has been a one-sided postseason rivalry.
New York eliminated the small-market Twins in the Division Series four times from 2003-10, repeatedly dashing the World Series aspirations of a largely homegrown lineup.
“Somebody asked me earlier, ‘Does it feel like seven years?'” Mauer said. “I said, ‘Yes, and all of that.'”Live streaming for Twins-Yankees is available via Watch ESPN.
Mauer is the only holdover from that era. Minnesota now has a new batch of budding young stars, and it’s a group that’s already wrecked some history. Powered by Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton, these Twins became the first team ever to go from 100 losses one year to the playoffs the next.
