After the Twins clinched an American League Central Division title, players kept insisting this was a different type of Twins team. Two games into the postseason and they have a fan base full of believers.

One day after they vanquished the franchise's 18-game postseason losing streak, the Twins won their first postseason series in 21 years.

Strong pitching, as it did throughout the regular season, carried the Twins into the American League Division Series after they dispatched the Toronto Blue Jays with a 2-0 victory Wednesday at Target Field, sweeping the best-of-three wild-card series.
