With the win, the Yankees became the first team to sweep a team in the playoffs which won 100 games in the regular season. They advance to the American League Championship Series for the fifth time in the last decade, having lost the last three, including the 2017 ALCS to the Houston Astros.

They will face the winner of the division series between the Rays and Astros, the latter of which has a 2-1 lead heading into Tuesday’s Game 4.

Before the series, the Twins had declared that their history with the Yankees in the postseason was irrelevant because the players and managers had changed. Their owner, David St. Peter, even said it was “time to slay the dragon.”

The Yankees have won 13 straight playoff games against the Twins, who have now lost a major league record 16 straight in the postseason. They have tied the Chicago Blackhawks for the most consecutive postseason losses in the four major sports.
