Twins Beat Tigers to Clinch AL Central

   It took twelve innings but the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 tonight to win the AL Central title. In less than 20 hours, they will face the NY Yankees in game one of the playoffs. The Yankees could have opted to play their first game Thursday but instead decided to go ahead and play tomorrow.  The Twins were forced to use seven relief pitchers in tonight's game so let's hope they can sustain their momentum and not let down against the mighty Yankees tomorrow night.

    There's an awful lot of champagne flowing in that clubhouse for a bunch of guys who have another big game in a matter of hours.
