Painting A Picture: Possible Twins-Tigers Outcomes

New, 22 comments

Breaking it down to all that matters:  wins and losses.

Two games down with seven games left isn't a horrible, unscaleable wall...but it's not far off.  With that in mind I wanted to make it clear what each scenario through four games in Detroit would mean to the Twins.

Series Result Twins Record Tigers Record Twins GB Final Series Implications
Twins Sweep 85 - 74 83 - 76 + 2.0 Any combination Twins wins or Tigers losses leading to two = Twins AL Central Champions
Twins Win 3 84 - 75 84 - 75 TIE The better team wins; Twins need to win one more than Detroit over the final three games of the year; game 163 possible.
Series Split 83 - 76 85 - 74 - 2.0 Twins need to sweep Royals; Tigers must lose two (enter game 163) or get swept (Twins win AL Central).
Tigers Win 3 82 - 77 86 - 73 - 4.0 Twins eliminated.
Tigers Sweep 81 - 78 87 - 72 - 6.0 Twins eliminated.


This is going to be one helluva week.  Let's go Twins!
