Yankees' advance to AL Division Series with bullpen, home runs

Yankees vs. Twins: How to Watch, Live-Stream AL Wild-Card Game

Yankees vs. Twins: How to Watch, Live-Stream AL Wild-Card Game

There remains a chance Sano could be on the roster if the Twins advance the AL Division Series presented by Doosan, as it was surprising he was left off the Wild Card roster. Robertson did for a while, after the Yankees chose a different reliever, Andrew Miller, in free agency.

"Yeah, well, we talked prior to the game", he said. Not once, in all the postseason history of the Yankees, had they ever won a game in which their starter only pitched one-third of an inning.

I've missed watching Twins games with her this summer a lot, especially with their unexpected return to the playoffs. Their last World Series was in 2009, starting with a sweep of the Twins and ending with a 6-game win against the Philadelphia Phillies. Green, Robertson and Kahnle combined for 7.2 innings Tuesday night-surrendering just one run and striking out 10-before Chapman struck out the side to close it out.

"I kind of got ready pretty quick and the next thing you know, I was in the game", Green said. Judge will hit a walk-off home run to send the crowd home with tears of joy.

Aaron Judge plays better on a bigger stage.

Judge almost hit another one out later, a screaming shot that went foul. Well, he played the Wild Card Game just like any other game he had played this season. Brushed off the plate by a 2-2 pitch in the second, Gardner sent Santana's next offering into the second deck in right for a 4-3 lead. Fortunately, that work has been done in the rankings below of all five home runs from that 8-4 Yankees win.

The Yankees offense is legit.

Green transferred the first-inning praise on to Gregorius, who wiped out that three-run deficit with one swing. Was this team not much better than the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox heading into the season? Dozier homered into the left-field seats on a 99 miles per hour fastball and Rosario lined a slider just over the right-field short porch.

"[The fans] were electric from the first pitch on", Judge would say when it was over.

This was the Judge's Chambers like never before. Overall, this wild card game is the Twins first postseason appearance since their 2010 loss to the Yankees.

Back in the playoffs with another homegrown group, the Twins got a result all too familiar to Minnesota fans - a celebratory Yankee Stadium sing-along with Frank Sinatra's New York, New York.

Both home runs were set up by Gardner, the leadoff man and the longest-tenured Yankee, and the team's unofficial captain.
