White Sox Strike Out; Minnesota Twins' Magic Number at 12

It’s over. 

With the win last night, the Twins stretch their lead over the White Sox to 7.  The Twins’ magic number (the number of combined Twins’ wins and White Sox losses) in order to clinch is down to 12. 

In order for the Sox to be there mathematically, they must take the next two games from the Twins, win (not tie) every series they play the rest of the season, while the Twins lose every series they play the rest of the season. 

It is over.  It has been over.  Let’s hope we can clinch this early, celebrate, and then get ready to actually do something in the playoffs.
