David Robertson earns pitching win in Yankees' wild-card victory

The Twins lost Byron Buxton to a back injury while Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez managed to stay in the game despite taking a very unfortunate cup shot. Girardi's "out-of-the-box" decision to go to Chad Green in the first inning after starter Luis Severino struggled badly was key, Francesa said.

After two solid innings from Green, David Robertson entered the game for the Yankees. Certainly, accomplished regular-season players in the past have stalled in the playoffs, and for NY fans, Judge's at-bats will be very assuring.

The Yankees went 91-71 during the regular season to win the first wild-card spot. The offense provided plenty of support, matching the Twins' output with three runs in the bottom of the first inning and adding at least a run in each of the next three frames.

Sano took batting practice Monday, but Molitor said the right-handed hitter couldn't use the leg to brace himself during his swing.

Severino started well, with a 100 miles per hour fastball for a strike to the Twins' Brian Dozier.

Gregorious smacked a tying three-run homer in the first, and in the third, Gardner gave the pinstripes a 4-3 lead with a solo-homer down the right field line.

"We gave them a pretty good punch there in the first inning and they responded", Mauer added, in reference to the fact that the Twins actually jumped to a 3-0 lead that didn't last long. The Twins, who finished the regular season with 85 wins and a stroll of a victory against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, have the more experienced starting pitcher in Ervin Santana. He threw three balls to Dozier, who, with the count in his favor, deposited Severino's fifth career playoff pitch over the left-field wall.

Judge reached the Yankee Stadium crowd in his first postseason game on Tuesday, and they returned the favor.

Green gave up a run in the third to tie things at four, but after that, the bullpen was pretty much ideal.

Robertson became a hit on social media during his outing on Tuesday - not because of his pitching, but because of his reaction when NY catcher Gary Sanchez took a foul tip to the groin.

As luck would have it, both starters for Tuesday's game pitched in that series a couple of weeks ago.

NY opens the best-of-five AL Division Series on Thursday at Cleveland. After the Indians went on a mind-blowing 22-game win streak, there was no chance that any team in the division was going to catch them.

However, playoff baseball has sprung up many surprises in the past, none more so than a year ago when the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series since 1908.
