Phil Hughes pitched Seven shutout innings and the Bombers got homers from Nick Swisher and Marcus Thames to complete yet another post season sweep of the Minnesota Twins.

If the Yankees can get the same result out of their pitching in the ALCS  they will be unbeatable. Unlike all of the previous postseason games against the Twins the Yankees got the lead early and never looked back as they out scored the Twins 17-6 during this three game series and over the four ALDS’s these teams have met the Yankees have owned the Twins out scoring them 69-6. Mariano Rivera came out in the ninth to close out a non save situation with only twelve pitches. The Stadium quickly emptied with little on the field celebration as the Fans have come to know that what really counts keeping the title of world Champions for another season.
