The New York Yankees beat the Minnesota Twins 10-4 on Friday night in Game 1 of the ALDS, and that result certainly isn’t a surprise when you consider the postseason history between these two teams.

The Twins have now lost 11 straight postseason games to the Yankees, with the streak going back to the 2004 ALDS.

And the Twins’ overall postseason losing streak is even worse. Minnesota has lost 14 consecutive postseason games. That’s an MLB record.

The Twins will try to put an end to this embarrassing streak on Saturday… by starting a rookie pitcher who began the season in A-ball (and spent his winter driving for Uber).
