For most of the night, it seemed like the Yankees were going to be down two games to none against the Minnesota Twins. But the Yankees slowly chipped away and ultimately came away with an 8-5 win at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Alex Rodriguez homered three times during this evening’s contest: once in the fourth inning, once in the seventh inning and once in the ninth inning. Chase Headley hit a SAC Fly in the seventh inning and in the ninth, John Ryan Murphy put the Yankees ahead with a three-run blast.
