Twins lose season finalePublished 12:20pm Monday, October 4, 2010
MINNEAPOLIS — Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind added two more home runs to Toronto’s major league-leading total, lifting the Toronto Blue Jays to a 2-1 victory over the playoff-bound Minnesota Twins in their regular-season finale Sunday.
The Blue Jays went deep 257 times this season, matching the 1996 Baltimore Orioles for the third-most in history. The 1997 Seattle Mariners have the record, with 264 homers.
The Twins finished 2-8 in their last 10 games, not the way they wanted to enter the postseason, but at least healthier than when they clinched the AL Central on Sept. 21.
The Twins announced another sellout, 79 out of 81 dates, and finished with 3,223,640 fans for their first season at Target Field.
They will need that home field advantage as they host the Wild Card New York Yankees in the best-of-five series, starting at Target Field Wednesday night.Tags: Minnesota, Summer Baseball, Twins
