Notes Regarding Twins/Senators Post-Season Play

October 5, 2019

So help me, at the moment I got to the page indicating the Minnesota Twins’ ancestors, the Washington Senators, clinched their lone title on Friday October 6th, 1924–NPR’s Scott Simon cited the fact there had been protests in Hong Kong, “the last couple of FRIDAYS.”

Alas, which notes regarding the Yankees domination of the Minnesota Twins, 11 straight post-season game wins, a (101-37) record starting in ’02 and now top heavy favorites, to hand the Twins a 6th playoffs entity loss, in as many possibilities.

I knew and checked Friday post-season Twins’ action, their lone win being in #3/1991 ALCS, vs the Toronto Blue Jays, en route to their second and to date, last title. Ex Yankees’ player, Mike Pagliarulo had an extra innings, game deciding home run in that tilt.

Otherwise, the Twins are (0-6) in Friday post-season games, losses to the Yankees in ’04 and 10 years apart in ’09 and ’19, a loss that completed an A’s sweep vs them in ’06 and one to the A’s in game 3 of the ’02 division series.

That ’02 series manifested in a Twins series victory, before a loss to the eventual World Series winning Angels, which included a Friday game 3 Twins’ loss.

The great, maybe the greatest pitcher, Walter Johnson, pictured above got the win in relief when the Twins’ ancestors, the Washington Senators won their lone World Series in game 7 of the 1924 World Series.
