Minnesota Twins Looking to Make History as Magic Number Down to One
If the Minnesota Twins can secure a win, or a Los Angeles Angels loss, they will accomplish something that no other team in MLB history has done.
Back in March, not a lot of people would have believed that the Twins would be in a position come September to make the playoffs. The team was coming off a 59-103 season in 2016, and fans were hoping for a season in which the team didn't lose 100 games again. Expectations were shattered and now the Twins are on the verge of history.
The Minnesota Twins will be the first team to ever make the postseason after losing 100 games the prior year.
MLB.com gives the Twins a "100% chance" to make the postseason. They just need to win one of their last five games, or have the Angels lose one of their last five.
