Home-field edge in focus as Twins face Tigers

With a second consecutive postseason berth already locked up, the Minnesota Twins begin their final homestand of the season on Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers focused on trying to secure home-field advantage for next week's best-of-three wild-card series.

Minnesota (33-22) currently holds the No. 4 seed in the American League, 1 1/2 games ahead of the No. 5 seed New York Yankees (31-23). And it's fair to say the Twins want every advantage possible heading into the postseason, especially if they play the hard-hitting Yankees.

Minnesota has endured 16 consecutive postseason losses dating back to a 2-0 victory over the Yankees in Game 1 of the 2004 AL Division Series. New York rebounded to win the next three games of that best-of-five series, kicking off an amazing 13-game postseason win streak over the Twins, including all three games in last season's AL Division Series by a combined score of 23-7.
