YANKEES SWEEP TWINS!!! The Twins has just played their last game at the Metrodome. Yankees has had just timely hitting in late innings. Alex Rodriguez HR in 7th to tie it and Jorge Posada go ahead HR. Andy Pettite pitched great as usual in postseason play. How about those Twins. Can it get that bad. They can't hold leads, poor baserunning, and the inability to shut down the Yankees in late innings. Nick Punto, probably the best producer in the series rounded 3rd after Denard Span hit a chopper to 2nd, Jeter throws home and Posada throws to the 3rd to get Punto. Punto never looked at his 3rd base coach until it was too late. Pavano pitched a heck of a ball game, but like the other Twins pitchers, they could not shut down the Yankees when they get the lead. Rivera got a 4 out save to sweep

Hello, This is Alan.

The Twins has given the Yankees some competition and hard fought wins. Even though the Yankees won game 1 by the score of 7-2, the Twins still manage to make the Yankees feel uneasy at times. In game 2 they that especially, but the Yankees prevail in games 1 and 2 and now have a commanding 2-0. They will go for the sweep on Sunday at the Metrodome with Andy Pettite going against Carl Pavano.

The Twins has major issues. They can't seem to hold on to leads against NY. They have had leads in all nine games, but fail to hold on to them, four walk offs in those nine games.

Game 1 starter CC Sabathia was good, not great. He gave up some hits, but he prevail to allow one earn run and a win

Game 2 starter Burnett was good. He gave way too many walks and hit a couple batters.
