FS1 Network MIN Vs NYY Game 2 MLB Playoffs – Hot Take
The New York Yankees look to post their 12th straight postseason win over the Minnesota Twins when they host the American League Central champions in Game 2 of the AL Division Series on Saturday. New York rolled to a 10-4 victory in the series opener to match the major-league record for most consecutive playoff wins over a single opponent set by the Boston Red Sox, who dominated the Angels from 1986-2008 .
DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBIs, Brett Gardner also went deep and Gleyber Torres hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the fifth inning as New York drew eight walks to go along with eight hits in Game 1. “I feel like we did a really of job of getting on base and working good counts, and getting those counts in our favor,” LeMahieu said in a postgame television interview. The Twins on Friday set a dubious record by suffering their 14th consecutive playoff loss, with their last win coming against the Yankees in the opening game of the 2004 ALDS. Yankees scheduled Saturday starter Masahiro Tanaka is 5-0 with a 2.27 ERA in five career starts against Minnesota and has stymied slugger Nelson Cruz (3-for-27, nine strikeouts).
