Twins face long odds for beating the Yankees in ALDS, but it's been done before

Updated: October 06, 2019 10:32 PM

The Minnesota Twins' backs are against the wall Monday night as they take on the New York Yankees.

The playoff series moves to Target Field for Game 3 after the Twins lost the first two games in New York.


Mason Schnarr is a research analyst at Sportradar in Minneapolis. The company crunches numbers for Vegas odds. Schnarr said the Twins extended their postseason losing streak to 15 games.

Twins fans continue to have hope after game 2 loss

"It's actually the most consecutive postseason losses in MLB history, Schnarr said. "Eighty-one teams have gone down 2-0 in a best-of-5 series. Only 10 have come back to win that series, about a 12% chance."

First pitch Monday at Target Field is at 7:40 p.m.
