MLB Wild-Card: Twins at Yankees Start Time, TV Schedule

Severino walked off to boos from the sellout crowd in the Bronx. But on this night, the 2017 Yankees made their own history.

When New York starter Luis Severino got only one Minnesota batter out while giving up four hits, one walk and three runs, it was going to be a long night for the Yankees' bullpen.

Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton exited the American League wild-card game against the New York Yankees on Tuesday due to upper-back tightness. And yes, Aaron Judge took him deep. It was the first time that neither starters for each team recorded a strike out in the Wild Card game.

Minnesota, the first team to rebound from a 100-loss season and make the playoffs the following year, have been eliminated by the Yankees in five of their past six post-season appearances and have not won a playoff series since 2002.

Most of all I got to admit I get a hoot out of the drama. Brett Gardner added on, and later-when Minnesota needed some clean innings out of José Berríos-potential MVP Aaron Judge added two more. It became an exciting, maddening mini-series within a mini-series. However, if they get their bullpen to deliver like it has during the second half of this season and matchup with the Indians bullpen, we might have ourselves a potential upset in the making. Jose Berrios (0-1) allowed three runs and five hits in three frames.

Ordinarily, I would hate it.

Headley will be among Girardi's first options off the bench, with Holliday a candidate to bat against left-handed pitchers. They were in the bleachers, jumping up and down.

Let's be honest: Though the laws of mathematics dictated that only one of these dingers could find itself in the top spot in these rankings, they were all pretty good. "It's as loud as I heard it in a long time".

On a day the Twins are to play the New York Yankees in tonight's postseason "play-in" game, he's thinking of a lost love in his letter to the Star Tribune. He appeared in the Twins' final series of the regular season, going 1-for-8 in three games.

Luis Severino did not have fun.

The Twins lineup feature some home run threats with Brian Dozier (34 home runs, 93 runs batted in), Eduardo Escobar (21 home runs, 73 runs batted in), and Eddie Rosario (27 home runs, 78 runs batted in).

"We were all on the same page about coming out swinging against the guy on the mound", outfielder Max Kepler said. "I thought I had a chance to tie the game up".

Chad Green came out of the bullpen to put on a tourniquet with two big strikeouts to end the inning.
