Minnesota sure did get the result(s) they needed so far tonight.
The Tigers laid an egg tonight at home. Detroit lost to Jake Peavy and the 'Sox 8-0.
Meanwhile, at the last regular season series ever in the Metrodome, the Twins are beating the Royals to a pulp 9-0 in the 4th. If not for the fact they have to go up against Greinke tomorrow night, they might be in real good shape to pull a miracle out these last few days. Simply winning the next two and getting one more Sox loss puts them in a one-game playoff in Minnesota on Monday.
