WJON Staffers Ready for Postseason Twins Baseball, Tuesday Night's Game on WJON

04 October 2017

The New York Yankees are betting favorites over the Minnesota Twins in the 2017 AL Wild-Card Game. The veteran right-hander is 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA this season.

Ervin Santana (16-8, 3.28) gets the call for the Twins. Judge led the AL and shattered the rookie record with his 52 home runs.

The Twins finished 85-77, their highest victory total since they won 94 in 2010. After losing 103 games in 2016, Paul Molitor's Twins will take on Joe Girardi's Yankees, who, themselves have sped up the organizational rebuild by an entire calendar year.

If you do not have access to a cable log-in, you can watch the American League wildcard game through Sling TV, using a free one-week trial. This is a one-game, winner-takes-all, so home-field advantage could play a key role.

If Severino can pitch five good innings, Joe Girardi would be able to piece together the rest of the game with one dominant bullpen arm after another. We'll see if he gets an opportunity on Tuesday. I remember being in the bullpen prior to the game and just hearing people above the pen heckling the best they could.

Director general Marc Ingla tweeted: "We are thinking first and foremost of our supporters". Moreover, before the game there were a security inspection of the venue.

The Yankees are coming off a set with the Blue Jays this past weekend. The Twins will be without Miguel Sano Tuesday night, which should help calm Severino's nerves knowing Minnesota's top home-run threat is out.

Yankees: RH Luis Severino (14-8, 2.98, 230 Ks in 193 1/3 IP).

The Yankees swept the Twins in the only series between the two clubs at Yankee Stadium.

"I don't think that you go up there trying to hit all three of his pitches because that's usually not a good mix", Molitor said. In a loss at the Stadium Sept. 18, Santana allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 2⁄3 innings.

"OK, well, tomorrow will be one", Santana said when asked about his prior appearances in the Bronx by ESPN's Buster Olney.

"We played some games this year that were, it seemed to me, like a playoff atmosphere", Gardner said. "I think they're all just going to enjoy the moment and it will be fun".

Colby Rasmus and ex-Twin Carlos Gomez hit solo homers in the second and fourth innings, respectively, and 2015 Cy Young Award victor Dallas Keuchel cruised through six shutout innings on three hits and seven strikeouts.

Santana has more experience than his counterpart, NY starter Luis Severino, who is making his postseason debut. Playing their usual great defense would go a long way to helping the Twins pull out a win, and they should have plenty of chances to show a national audience how good they are at catching the ball.

Dellin Betances said Severino's changeup has given him "three plus-pitches", and that he's noticed a big difference in overall demeanor. "Whenever we're done, and hopefully it's not for a while, I'm sure that will be pushed to the forefront".
