Saddled by record streak, dazed Twins ponder playoff ousters

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) After taking a second straight division title by winning at a 60% rate during the regular season, the Minnesota Twins experienced no reward in the playoffs, only that familiar autumn exasperation for the franchise and those who follow it.

The Twins, whose last World Series championship was 29 years ago, stretched their postseason losing streak to an all-time record 18 straight games in a two-game sweep by the Houston Astros in the AL wild card series completed Wednesday. The Twins have also lost nine straight rounds, the second-longest skid in history behind the Chicago Cubs (1910 to 1998).

"The day I showed up here in the Minnesota Twins organization, I had no idea that was even a thing. I didn't know it existed," manager Rocco Baldelli said. "I hear about it from people who care about this team. And you know what? We want to do better. We want to do better for ourselves. We want to do better for the organization and want to do better for all the fans, too. I think all parties deserve that."
