History hasn't been kind to the Twins when facing the Yankees in the postseason

History hasn't been kind to the Twins when facing the Yankees in the postseason

On Sunday at 2:38 p.m. (ET), the Boston Red Sox will host the Houston Astros at Fenway Park.

The Minnesota Twins jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first and had two runners in scoring position when Yankees manager Joe Girardi decided to make a change. In the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers claim the top seed with an MLB best record of 103-58, followed by the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs.

The Dodgers await the victor of Wednesday's NL Wild Card matchup of Colorado (+155) at Arizona (-175).

The Yankees advanced to the ALDS via an 8-4 home victory over the Twins Wednesday in the AL Wild Card Game.

At least 13 killed in Balochistan shrine blast
It is unclear who carried out the attack, but Sufi shrines have been increasingly targeted by Islamist extremists in recent years. Initial probe showed that the blast occurred when dhamal was going in the premises of the shrine.

It could well be that this is the year the Dodgers, five-time NL West champions, figure it out. Catcher Gary Sanchez contributed to his impressive sophomore campaign with 33 dingers of his own. The Indians feel they have unfinished business after losing the seventh game to the Cubs previous year, and they appear to be as prepared as they have ever been to win the franchise's first World Series since 1948.

Expect the Diamondbacks to defeat the Rockies and meet the Dodgers in the National League Division Series after a dominant pitching performance by Greinke.

In the nation's capital, the Washington Nationals are entering the playoffs years of failed expectations on their backs. "They're a team that can get very hot". "They won 22 games in a row recently and I feel like they could make another run this October". A year after winning its first six postseason games, and in this season of streaks, Cleveland hopes to do it again.

Gardner knows most everyone is picking the Indians to win this series easy.

Tropical Depression 16 Forms in the Caribbean
This is not an official forecast, but the models are often used as guidance for creating the projected path for a storm. The development of this depression is occurring in the region most conducive to storm formation at this time of year.

Previous year heading into the MLB Playoffs, the Cubs were 7-4 to win it all. The Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw, the runaway NL Cy Young favorite and one of the best pitchers of the generation.

Judge hit 52 home runs in the regular season to set a rookie record. He has a 9-5 record in 18 career postseason starts.

Masahiro Tanaka, on the other hand, has been hit or miss this year. Much higher than they once were.

These three teams are the clear favorites as postseason baseball heats up, as far as the Vegas odds go.

Samsung HMD Odyssey Goes Official: A Premium Windows Mixed Reality Headset
Thanks to their inclusion, the Odyssey should work with most SteamVR games when support rolls out later this year. PC makers Dell, HP, Acer and Lenovo also will be making VR headsets created to work with Windows 10 machines.

As a Sox fan, I would love to see a Sox-Yankees ALCS, but I just don't think the Yankees are there yet. Cleveland has the best pitching staff in baseball between Kluber and Miller and has the third best offense in the MLB, statistically. Gray is probably the most sure thing in the Yankees rotation, but it's hard to see him completely shutting down the Indians' juggernaut of an offense. Who could forget one of the most memorable home runs in World Series history? I like the Dodgers out of the National League.
