Jimmy and I got to attend the Twins first wild card playoff game yesterday and it was quite the afternoon. The Twins had an unprecedented 0-18 losing streak in the playoffs hanging over our heads. Something felt different this time. First of all, the Yankees were long ago eliminated. They were on the winning end of 13 loses in that streak.
It was an afternoon start so my mom came over to hang out with the kids.
Things started out quick with a two-run homer by Royce Lewis in the bottom of the first inning.
Royce followed up with another home run in the third, but it wasn't needed as the Twins beat the Blue Jays 3-1. We've now been to a notable game for 3 of 4 major Minnesota sports teams.
I'm backdating this post, so I already know they don't make it past Houston in the divisional round. But, we won a game, and a series, and didn't get swept in the second round. There is so much to be positive about looking forward to 2024. Go Twins!
