Believe it or not, there's still baseball worth watching in Minnesota. 

No, we're not talking about the Twins, who are once again sprinting towards a 90-loss season. Not even the Yankees in town make the Twins interesting at this point.

Fun fact: the Yankees have trounced the Twins eight straight times, are 19-4 against them since June 25, 2015 and 83-31 dating back to 2002. 

Funner fact: the St. Paul Saints are really good, and are playing for the American Association championship for the first time since 2011. Their last title came 14 years ago. 

Game 1 of the best-of-five series against the Kansas City T-Bones starts at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday at CHS Field in St. Paul. The rest of the series is as follows: 

  • Game 2: Wednesday at CHS Field, 7:05 p.m. 
  • Game 3: Friday at Kansas City, 7:05 p.m. 
  • Game 4: Saturday at Kansas City, 7:05 p.m. (if necessary)
  • Game 5: Sunday at CHS Field, 1:05 p.m. (if necessary)

Playoff tickets are available at saintsbaseball.com, by stopping by the Saints box office at CHS Field, or by calling 651-644-6659. 

Ticket prices are the same for the championship series as they are for the regular season, so $5 for berm seating, $6 for bleacher seats, $14 for outfield reserved seats, $16 for drink rail, $18 for infield reserved and home plate reserved. 

If you buy a ticket on the day of the game they sell for $2 extra. 

Kids ages 2 and under get in for free so long as they don't need their own seat. 

By the way, if you are still interested in how the Twins did last night, they managed to engage the Yankees in a halfway decent battle for a handful of innings, before they were disposed of in the dumpster they've spent far too much time in the past eight years. "
