Twins win again. So does the competition.

The Twins have seven games to go. But they need Houston and LA to stop winning. I'd also like to point out that, as we watch teams with barely 80 wins eat each other for that second AL Wild Card spot, the NL post-season is already set and both Wild Card teams already have 90 wins.
