Twins hold off Tigers for 4th straight win (1:09)

Twins assume first in AL Central with 7-6 win against Tigers

Jake Cave hit a pair of home runs, Kenta Maeda finished off his regular season with another strong start and the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 7-6 on Wednesday night to take over sole possession of the AL Central lead for the first time...

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Manager Rocco Baldelli announced the Twins playoff rotation: Kenta Maeda, José Berríos, and Michael Pineda. If they face the Yankees, Game 1 will be Maeda vs. Cole, and Game 2 Berríos vs. Tanaka. The Yankees' Game 3 starter is TBD, would face former Yankee Pineda.


Yankees thrash Blue Jays; Gerrit Cole brilliant again

The brief 2-game losing streak is over, and that's kind of important. We explain why -- and look at Gerrit Cole's month of September, and just how ready he is for the postseason. Plus, Kyle Higashioka will catch him in Game 1 next week. You might think that would be a hole in the lineup, but maybe not. The offense exploded -- we hear from Aaron Booner on Judge, and Aaron Hicks on....himself. Plus, chances getting slimmer foe the 4 seed in the AL, but magic number down to 1 for clinching 2nd place in the AL East.

Kepler walks it off for the Twins (0:35)

Twins top Tigers 5-4 in 10th, sit half-game behind White Sox

BBTN: Tim Kurkjian on why he can't take his eyes off the Marlins and the NL Cy Young race. Plus, Sarah Langs plays The Numbers Game

Tim Kurkjian joins Buster to discuss why he can’t take his eyes off the Marlins, why the Reds are the Indians of the NL, the NL Cy Young Race, anemic hitting across the league, night games at Wrigley, Josh Donaldson going off on umpires, Ron Gardenhire’s abrupt retirement and Justin Verlander undergoing Tommy John surgery. Later, Sarah Langs stops by to play The Numbers Game with notes on the Padres’ postseason drought, Luke Voit leading the league in homers and Garret Crochet’s debut.


Yankees Lose 10-2 but Clinch Playoff Birth.

Yes -- they lost Sunday, snapping the 10-game win streak, but clinched a postseason birth with the Padres' win over the Mariners. Deivi Garcia didn't have it for the first time -- but would you still trust him in the playoffs? Apparently, some are not ready to commit. Judge & Urshela were out of the lineup for planned off days, but a close eye is being kept. Don't overlook JA Happ for a Game 3 start -- he's earned it. Gary Sanchez is climbing out of the hole, but he doesn't have to be a star. Plus, playoff maneuvering by Aaron Boone, and an eye on potential seeding.


BBTN: Jesse Rogers has an interesting idea for how teams should use their pitchers in the first round. Plus, Todd Radom on Kauffman Stadium

Jesse Rogers joins Buster to discuss his pitching strategy for the first round of the playoffs, Josh Donaldson’s ejection after hitting a home run and kicking dirt on home plate, the White Sox clinching a playoff spot, Javier Baez rounding into form, the end of Jon Lester’s time with the Cubs, and another possible Yankees-Twins matchup in the postseason. Later, Todd Radom joins the show to talk about Kauffman Stadium and to administer the weekly quiz.

Yankees pound Blue Jays 20-6; LeMahieu & Voit both drive in 5

Even Gary Sanchez got in on the onslaught! Sanchez drove in 4 -- hit a 3-run HR, Luke Voit leads the Majors in HR. Deivi Garcia again -- would you feel confident with him in the postseason right now? Hard not to. Plus -- news on Gleyber Torres -- out again. Aaron Judge back by the weekend. What to look for with Gerrit Cole on the mound later today -- and what does the manager think turned everything around?
