I'm going Twins and Diamondbacks.

Diamondbacks have Grienke on the mound tonight.

I think the Twins have a decent shot tonight and since there's a surprise here and there in the playoffs I'm picking the Twins.

Pulled from Baseball Reference:

Regular season Twins record vs Yankees

NYY 2 4 19 27 .333

From NY Daily News:

Ervin Santana possibly enjoyed the best season of his 13-year career (16-8, 3.28 ERA), but he’s 6-10 with a 5.66 ERA in 20 career starts against the Yanks.

Sevirino Yankee pitcher lasted only three innings vs Twins last start in September.

From the NYPost:

Ervin Santana is 0-5 with a 6.43 ERA in six career starts at this version of Yankee Stadium. But in his last two starts there, the veteran righty has yielded just three runs in 10²/₃ innings, including two runs in 5²/₃ innings on Sept. 18.

---

From what I've read though Santana has been pitching really well in September. Twins need to get their runs early, if they're down after the 5th inning the Yankees have a huge advantage with their bullpen.

Death Roe's Useless MLB Predictions:

Astros/Red Sox - Astros in 4
Indians/WC Winner - Indians in 4, doesn't matter who it is

Cubs/Nationals - Cubs in 5
Dodgers/Diamondbacks - Diamondbacks in 4

Astros/Indians - Astros in 6
Cubs/Diamondbacks - Diamondbacks in 6

Diamondbacks/Astros - Astros in 7

The Twins have a veteran pitcher starting, and they are hitting well. Last time vs Yankees he lost 2-1. He gave up 2 runs and 7 hits in 5 1/3 innings. If he matches that performance we have a game. Twins are hitting well right now and the twins also play good on the road. If I were betting I'd probably put a small bet on the Twins with the money line just to make the game more interesting.

In 2012 Nats shut down their ace and a lot of people argue it cost them the series that year.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
