battle of the losing streaks

My poor brother. Right after he predicts the Twins will take it all, his beloved franchise drops its first two against Oakland. ESPN notes potentially contradictory statistics:
Oakland has arrived at yet another elimination game. The perennial playoff underperformers are 0-9 in those since 2000, losing four straight first-round series....

The Twins -- whose 54-27 home record this year was baseball's best -- have lost seven straight at the Dome in the postseason. Their last win coming in Game 1 of the 2002 AL Championship Series against the Angels.
Take that, oddsmakers.
