Twins it is

71% of you who took our poll wanted the Twins to be the Yankees opponent. For better or worse, you got your wish. It took 12 innings of exciting baseball yesterday before Minnesota finally beat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 in their one game playoff.

Alexi Casilla singled home Carlos Gomez with the winning run off closer Fernando Rodney, who was working his 4th inning. Rodney had already blown a one run lead in the 10th, but manger Jim Leyland decided he was the only guy to go to.

The Division Series starts this evening at 6 p.m. EDT with CC Sabathia facing rookie Brian Duensing. Stay tuned for a more in-depth ALDS preview later today.
