Twins To Play White Sox in One-Game Playoff Tuesday Night

The Twins walked out of the Metrodome in a most anticlimactic way, for the second straight day.

After gathering in the clubhouse to watch the White Sox play their makeup game against the Tigers, the Twins hoped to celebrate another American League Central title on their day off. Instead, a win by the White Sox forced them to fly to Chicago and play in a tiebreaker game to determine the division champion Tuesday night.

Nick Blackburn will pitch for Minnesota against John Danks.

Shortstop Nick Punto says the team was prepared to travel regardless and that the extra day of play was not disappointing.

If the Twins win, they will travel to Tampa Bay and begin a best-of-five playoff series against the Rays on Thursday.
