In the end, there were breakdowns everywhere. A dysfunctional offense. An imperfect defense. And a couple of bad pitches thrown at the wrong time.

The Twins did not look like a division champion on Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to Houston to open the best-of-three wild-card series. The defeat at Target Field immediately put them in an elimination game Wednesday, in which a loss would send them into a bubble-less October.

The Astros, who reached the expanded 2020 MLB postseason with a losing record, scored all their runs with two outs, including three during a backbreaking ninth inning. Houston's Dusty Baker became the first manager to win a postseason game with five different clubs.
