UPDATE, 8:18 p.m.: The Yankees and Twins are going to the seventh and we’re going to a new thread. Keep it going.

UPDATE, 8:21 p.m.: Tolbert left the game with a strained left oblique. He’s day to day.

UPDATE, 8:24 p.m.: Think Chuck Meriwether prefers Molina to Posada also? Ouch.

UPDATE, 8:26 p.m.: Joba out, Phil Coke in to face Kubel. Hughes up, with Robertson alongside in the pen.

UPDATE, 8:31 p.m.: Chad here. That slider makes all the difference for Coke. It’s the reason he went from a forgotten prospect to pitching in a huge spot in the ALDS.

UPDATE, 8:42 p.m.: Huuuuuuuughes coming in. Cuddyer, Young, Gomez due up.

UPDATE, 8:44 p.m.: Justin Tuck in the house tonight.

UPDATE, 8:54 p.m.: Apparently Brendan Harris is a hidden gem; second hit tonight and it’s first and third for Punto. Big spot for Hughes.

UPDATE, 8:58 p.m.: Soft curveball from Hughes gets taken right up the middle and it’s 2-1 Twins. Girardi not wasting any time and going right to Rivera to try and keep the score where it is.

UPDATE, 9:04 p.m.: Nothing doing. Rivera gives up a run, too, and suddenly it’s 3-1 with the Yankees down to six outs.

UPDATE, 9:28 p.m.: Down two in the ninth and Tex gets his first hit of the series. Can A-Rod do it once more?

UPDATE, 9:31 p.m.: HE CAN! An absolute bomb and he knew it right away – dropped his bat and pumped his fist to the dugout while the ball was still in the air. 3-3, the Stadium is rocking and Nathan is on the ropes. Can they finish it right here?

UPDATE, 9:39 p.m.: Nope. Cano grounds out. I’d say that was a “Yankee moment” for Alex, though, no? Aceves coming on for the 10th.

UPDATE, 9:57 p.m.: Girardi is a genius: That third catcher on the roster is looking pretty good right now.

UPDATE, 10:04 p.m.: Total meltdown by Nathan. Damon coming up with a chance to win it.

UPDATE, 10:09 p.m.: And an even worse mistake by Gardner. Where’s he going there?
