The Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins will play the 163rd game of their season. It’s a one game playoff, which will decide the AL Central winner, and that team will advance to the ALDS to face our Yankees.

The pitching matchup for the game is: RHP Scott Baker (15-9, 4.36ERA) vs. RHP Rick Porcello (14-9, 4.04ERA) The game is scheduled to start at 5:07PM ET. The game will be televised on TBS. This could be the last game at the Metrodome if the Twins fail to advance to the Postseason.

The Yankees have one hour after the game ends to tell the MLB which series schedule they want. The playoffs are a crapshoot, but I much rather face the Twins than the Tigers. Either way..Bring ‘em on! Let’s go Twins!
