Baseball playoffs betting fans witnessed for the just fourth time an AL tie breaker game to get into the postseason.
The game was a thriller but ultimately the Chicago White Sox realized their dream and the Minnesota Twins will have to wait until next season to exercise their demons. After a hard-fought, and in some ways strange, battle for the last spot in the AL baseball playoffs betting lineup the Sox escaped with a 1-0 win and a birth into the playoffs.
Baseball playoffs betting fans and analysts had expected a wild game with a lot of runs. Even the players themselves were expecting a high scoring affair and the pitching staffs were prepared for a long night of work. But as anyone who made a bet on baseball playoffs action last night can attest, this was as low scoring a game as is possible. The White Sox got a superman performance from starter John Danks who threw eight scoreless innings.
The Twins have been one of the hottest hitting teams down the stretch and favored by many to clinch the division and appear in the baseball playoffs betting. But anyone looking to bet on baseball playoffs games featuring the Twins will have to wait another year. The team failed to produce a single run and you can’t earn a place in the baseball playoffs betting without any offense. The Twins’ big bats like Morneau and Cuddyer, after abusing the Sox all season, were silenced and the failure to produce was the biggest factor in the team’s inability to win a place in the baseball playoffs betting.
But nothing should be taken away from Danks who was nearly flawless and looked very strong as he heads into the baseball playoffs betting action. If he can keep up that level of pitching, he provides another quality starter for the Sox when the bet on baseball playoffs kickoff. He set the table perfectly for Bobby Jenks who was nothing less than perfect in his one inning of action. But the biggest hero of the game and the man responsible for 100% of the team’s offense in this baseball playoffs betting qualifier was the old man, Jim Tome. Tome quietly added to his immense collection of postseason homeruns by tattooing a ball 461 feet into the centerfield bleachers and ensuring a place for the Sox in the baseball playoffs betting.
With two teams from Chicago now in the baseball playoffs betting action, it’s a good time to be a sports fan and bet on baseball playoffs in the “Windy City”.
