The fluids were flying and the emotions bounced all over the Metrodome on Monday as the Twins proved they could escape from the abyss, beating Kansas City 8-1 to clinch a spot in the American League playoffs for the ninth time in club history. . .Let's hope that the momentum continues for another month.
They've used the greatest stretch of high-level play in club history to storm back from a 25-33 record and 11½ games out of first place on June 7 to earn a playoff berth in what's considered baseball's toughest division.
The Twins won 11 consecutive games once and eight in a row twice.
