New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins

New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins

Giancarlo Stanton gave Yankees fans reason to cheer in the Bronx after receiving some rough treatment in his first 12 games there this season. "Now we just want to keep doing the same thing and keep hitting".

"It was cool", Boone said.

"That was good", star slugger Giancarlo Stanton said.

Stanton hit a loud, long drive for his fifth homer, and Gary Sanchez boomed a two-run double.

Tanaka was brilliant much of the night, retiring 14 of 15 after walking Brian Dozier to open the game, and when faced with his only jam of the game - he hit Ryan LaMarre to end that run, and then allowed two straight singles with two outs in the fifth to give the Twins their lone tally - he escaped by getting Joe Mauer to fly out, and then retired the next five in a row before departing after walking LaMarre with two outs in the seventh.

Odorizzi surrendered four runs to the Indians in five innings last time out, but he had allowed three total in his first two road starts.

Masahiro Tanaka bounced back from a pair of poor outings to work into the seventh inning against the Twins, allowing one run on three hits, and the rookie infielder Miguel Andujar homered in the second inning and doubled in the sixth, and now has 12 extra-base hits out of his 18 hits this season. "Nothing's easy. Was good to get a few knocks". In his 27.2 innings and 2-1 record this year, Berrios has a 1.63 ERA with 29 Ks.

The Yankees have acquired pitcher A.J. Cole from the Nationals in a cash deal.




RHP David Hale was designated for assignment. Chad Green would go on to finish that inning.

LaMarre trotted from center field to the mound with one out and one on in the eighth.

-Nor is Boone: "He's a really gifted hitter, and I think he's gotten comfortable, so now we're seeing what a gifted hitter can do".

LaMarre pitched once before in the majors, throwing a scoreless inning for Boston in 2016. "But just try to get out of there and save a couple of arms hopefully for tomorrow", he said. New York, on the other hand, has been wildly inconsistent.

Yankees: INF Brandon Drury is set to play a rehab game Wednesday at Triple-A. An aggravated tendon in the back of his neck has caused the trouble, and he's getting acupuncture and other treatment. Minnesota is now 8-9 overall and 3-6 on the road.

But the exclamation point on a resounding victory was provided by Didi Gregorius, the team leader in home runs, with seven, who blasted a grand slam over the right-field wall in the eighth inning.

After a so-so start to the season, the Yankees have now won four out of their last five and it seems they may have found a groove.
