Six-run sixth gives Yankees a 7-2 victory over Twins


Much like last night, the Yankees were already down against the Twins. But in the sixth inning, the Yankees erupted for six runs which led them to a 7-2 victory at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Chase Headley started the Yankees comeback in the fifth inning when he hit a solo-shot to tie the game at one. In the sixth, Garrett Jones hit a RBI single, Headley hit a two-run double, Didi Gregorius had an RBI Sac Bunt and Stephen Drew delivered the final blow with a two-run homer.

Nathan Eovaldi started for the Yankees, going eight innings and giving up two runs on eight hits with five strikeouts. Justin Wilson failed to retire a batter and Dellin Betances pitched the ninth.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees head to Texas where they’ll play a three game set against the Rangers. Ivan Nova will start for the Yankees and Matt Harrison will start for the Rangers. First pitch is at 8:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    Real nice job Nate.In a series against a pretty good Twins team,he was the only starter to come through.Getting to the 9th was huge for him.Keep it up young man,excellent today

  2. Robert Rufa says:

    If Eovaldi has settled in, he may be the only starter Girardi can have confidence in.
