Minnesota Twins Playoff Details
Minnesota Twins Postseason History
The Minnesota Twins have long been a contender for World Series titles, with the team playing for the World Series on multiple occasions. And thanks to some October magic, the team has won multiple titles as well, getting the job done in pressure-packed seventh games with the eyes of the baseball world focused squarely on them.
Minnesota has won multiple World Series titles in seven games. Their first seven-game championship win came in 1987 when they beat the St. Louis Cardinals for the trophy. In 1991, they did it again by defeating the Atlanta Braves in seven games. And the common thread for those Twins teams was their ability to pitch.
In 1987, it was Frank Viola who was the pitching star for the Twins. He took home the World Series MVP award that year, as he went 2-1 in three starts in the seven-game series. In Game Seven, Viola threw eight innings, with the Cardinals’ only runs for the game coming in the top of the second inning. Viola’s pitching performance was even more impressive given how much he had worked in the series prior to the deciding game.
Pitching was the story of the 1991 World Series as well, with another Twins hurler taking series MVP honors. Morris started three games for the Twins out of seven, and posted an unbelievable 1.17 earned run average. In Game Seven, Morris threw a complete game shutout that saw him throw over 120 pitches en route to one of the legendary postseason pitching performances and, more importantly, a championship.
When it comes to postseason rivalries, the Minnesota Twins certainly have a claim to being a rival of the New York Yankees. The Yankees and Twins went at it several times in the American League Division Series in the 2000s, with the Twins fighting valiantly against the mighty Yankees in each of those series. Minnesota was led by franchise greats such as Johan Santana and Joe Mauer during the peak years of the rivalry with the Yankees, as the Twins were frequent qualifiers in the American League half of postseason play.

How Much Do Twins Playoff Tickets Cost?
