AL Wild-Card: Yankees Host Twins in Wild-Card Showdown

2017 AL Wild-Card

AL Wild-Card is Winner Take All

After missing out on winning the American League East, the New York Yankees will host the Minnesota Twins in the Wild Card game on Tuesday.

Both teams defied projections by “experts”. The teams claimed the two wild-card spots in the American League. The winner advances to the AL Division Series against the Cleveland Indians.

Oddsmakers have the Yankees as a -250-moneyline favorite. The total is sitting at 7.5.

Minnesota’s Ervin Santana (16-8, 3.28 ERA) threw five scoreless innings in his last outing, but took a no-decision in a 5-2 loss in Cleveland. Santana lost his lone start against the Yankees in 2017, allowing two runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings, with three strikeouts and a walk. The Twins fell 2-1 in New York on September 18. Santana was 10-3 in 17 road starts with a 2.71 ERA in 2017.

New York’s Luis Severino (14-6, 2.98 ERA) won his last start, a 6-1 victory at home against Tampa Bay. Over six innings, he allowed a run on four hits, struck out nine and walked one. Severino lasted just three innings in his only start against the Twins this season, scattering three runs on five hits with three strikeouts and a walk. This season, Severino was 8-5 in 16 home starts with a 3.71 ERA.

The Yankees won four of six meetings against the Twins this season, losing two of three in Minnesota, but they swept three games at home. Five of the six went under the posted total.
