    On Saturday of the final day of the season, the Twins had a one game lead over Boston and Detroit. The Twins and Boston were playing head to head that final weekend, and one Twins victory would put them in the World Series.

    Boston won on Saturday and going into the last day of the regular season on Sunday, the Twins and Red Sox were tied for first place. Detroit was one game back and had a double header against California.

    Boston beat the Twins and Detroit won the first game of the double header. A Detroit victory in the night cap would have resulted in a play off game between Boston and Detroit. But California won the final game.
