To Play Another DayFacing elimination in Arlington, Texas, the Tampa Bay Rays managed to come from behind and defeat the Texas Rangers today, 6-3. Here's an odd fact about the two American League match-ups. So far, no home team has won a game during the American League Division Series. The Rays dropped two in Tampa Bay, and the Twins lost both in Minneapolis. Of course, the Minnesota Twins are currently losing to the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium, so that fact might end tonight.
The Twins are also facing elimination against the Yankees tonight. They are currently trailing 4-0 in the fourth inning. I'm a little disappointed that my surprise pick for this postseason might be bounced out this evening. If you read my playoff prediction blog, you'll see that picked the Twins to advance to the World Series and eventually fall victim to the Philadelphia Phillies. If the Twins can manage a late rally and win Game 3, there will be four games played on Sunday.
