Joe Mauer and the Minnesota Twins are back in the postseason for the first time in seven years, facing the New York Yankees on Tuesday night in the AL wild-card game.

The Twins will throw Ervin Santana, he went 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA this season.

Here are three keys to the New York Yankees coming away with the victory in the American League Wild Card Game on Tuesday night.

A day after manager Paul Molitor said he planned to use his All-Star slugger in some capacity, Sano was left off the 25-man roster for the winner-take-all game at Yankee Stadium.

The victor of this game will advance to play the defending American League champion Indians in the AL Division Series starting Friday in Cleveland. Santana was strong away from home this season, winning 10 of those games on the road where he had an ERA of 2.71 covering 17 starts. "It's a different team, and they've got a different team over there".

"That's what it's all about: postseason baseball", Judge says. Their 5.03 runs per game ranked seventh in the majors. He hit.311 with 15 homers and 32 RBIs in September, putting himself right back in the MVP conversation.

— Closing Time. After losing his top reliever two months ago, Molitor eventually settled on a 14-year veteran to handle the ninth inning. He has managed eight at-bats since returning, but has just one hit to three strikeouts so far. The 6-foot-8 righty walked seven over his final 9 2/3 innings and finished with 44 walks, up from 28 a year ago.
