Yankees host Twins in AL wild-card game

CLEVELAND OH- SEPTEMBER 26 Minnesota Twins catcher Jason Castro advances to third base on a flout to center field during the fourth inning of the Major League Baseball game between the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians

You can live stream the American League wildcard game between the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees on the Watch ESPN website.

Find out how to live stream the American League wildcard game between the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees below. AL MVP hopeful Aaron Judge headlines the crew, which also includes Tuesday's starter Luis Severino and catcher Gary Sanchez. Regardless of the final score, the Twins should be commended for making it to the Wild Card game.

If the Twins manage to advance to the Division Series against the Indians, they'll be able to reset their roster.

Finishing six games ahead of the Twins for the top Wild Card spot, Tuesday night's game will be played at Yankee Stadium.

"I'm just excited for this opportunity", Judge said. The Twins themselves might be the only ones who think they can beat the Yankees in a one-game playoff.

NY was supposed to be a rebuilding franchise this season, amassing young talent that would develop the team into contenders in the next few years.

"The faces have changed so much", said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who managed NY past Minnesota in the 2009 and '10 ALDS. Rather, he would have given manager Paul Molitor a formidable right-handed threat off the bench should the Twins need a pinch hitter in the late innings.

Bird is an interesting choice, especially because he missed so much of the regular season with an ankle injury that ultimately required surgery.

Betting line: The Yankees opened as -245 favorites (wager $245 to win $100); the total is at 7.5 runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark (line updates and matchup report).

Second, Sano got pinch-hit for in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday, and told reporters after the game that his shin was bothering him as he ran to first. But on Tuesday, I think Robbie Grossman gives the Twins the best chance to win.

The 24-year-old Sano batted.264 with 28 homers and 77 RBIs in 114 games this season.

Santana, 34, went 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA this season and is 2-2 in eight postseason appearances.

The Yankees have a trio of All-Stars at the back of their bullpen in Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances and David Robertson, plus two of baseball's best middle relievers in Chad Green and Tommy Kahnle.

The Yankees led the majors with 241 home runs this season.

The total has gone under in four of Minnesota's last five games. Their 5.03 runs per game ranked seventh in the majors.

"He's a pitcher that does have a lot of experience", Girardi said.

As the playoffs get underway, we take a look at what to expect when two of baseball's best stories collide in the Bronx tonight.
