AL Wild Card : Yankees Soar 8-4 Victory Over the Twins

Severino, who had thrown a major league-best 16 games of one run or fewer in 2017, had never started a playoff game at any level. Fortunately, that work has been done in the rankings below of all five home runs from that 8-4 Yankees win.

Who honestly thought the Twins would overcome all the odds to be the second wild card?

Severino matched the shortest start by a Yankees pitcher in postseason history. Since the beginning of July, Luis Severino has lost just three games.

Robertson entered in the third inning and exited to a roaring standing ovation, an appreciation for his essential 3.1 scoreless innings.

The two teams have met in the postseason four times, all since 2003, and the Yankees have won all four series.

As impressive as the Ravens' defense has been at times, their offense isn't almost good enough to compete for the AFC North crown. Beating the Jets in Week 1 was certainly expected, and Buffalo lost a 9-3 heartbreaker to the Panthers in Week 2.

"I've heard Frank sing that song probably too many times and you can't get them back", Twins manager and Minnesota native Paul Molitor said two weeks ago. Also, Severino has pitched against the Indians twice. Judge, the man the Yankees offense revolves around, is 4-for-14 this season against the Indians, including one home run off of Mike Clevinger. "There's two teams are going to fight like heck and one of us is not going to move on, but I really like the way we've been playing", Girardi said.

With two on and a three-run deficit in the sixth, Mauer hit a drive to deep left-field, but Brett Gardner grabbed it on the warning track in the corner. Severino could not fix his struggles and would serve up a two-run home run to Eddie Rosario, and the Yanks found themselves down 3-0 before they even stepped up to the plate.

The Twins are the first team to come back from a season of 100 or more losses and reach the playoffs the next season. But somehow you knew, by the time the first inning was over, that the Yankees would beat the Twins, just because they always do in October. Judge will hit a walk-off home run to send the crowd home with tears of joy. As a unit, the Yankees team has hit Santana pretty well in their careers, batting.270 with a.316 OBP and a.794 OPS.

"[The fans] were electric from the first pitch on", Judge would say when it was over. The Yankees earned the right to take on the Cleveland Indians, defeating the Minnesota Twins 8-4 Wednesday night in NY. Now they had played their way to Cleveland with home runs, and with that bullpen.
