Paul Molitor’s first postseason as a manager ends as soon as it begins, as his Minnesota Twins lost the American League Wild Card Game to the Yankees in New York, 8-4. The former Milwaukee Brewers’ Hall of Fame player could only watch as the Twins were sent home with their 13th straight playoff loss, tying a record set by the Boston Red Sox from 1986 through ’95. Minnesota took a 3-0 lead in the first on homers from Brian Dozier and Eddie Rosario, sending Yankees’ starter Luis Severino to the showers after getting just one out — but four Yankees’ relievers gave up just five hits and one run in the remaining eight and two thirds frames. Aaron Judge hit a two run homer for the Yanks in his playoff debut, and New York will now play Cleveland in a best of five Division Series that begins tomorrow (Thursday).
