Yankees roll Twins behind four homers, 14-1

The Twins dropped to 8-8 on the year with the loss Sunday: two of their three losses to Tampa Bay were of the walk-off variety. In those games, he is batting.517 (15-for-29) with three homers, eight runs scored, eight RBIs and 10 extra-base hits. He threw 4.1 innings, allowing two runs (none earned) on four hits with one walk and one strikeout in a 4-3 Yankees win. On the next pitch, Tyler Austin sent a two-run home run 409-feet into left-center field, turning a 12-1 lead into a 14-1 lead. Gleyber Torres had a pair of hits and his first RBI for NY, which extended a winning streak to four for the first time under new manager Aaron Boone and sent the Twins to their season-worst fifth consecutive loss.

-Andujar's 14 extra-base hits are the second-most by a Yankee all-time in his first 19 games, one ahead of Sanchez and two behind Joe DiMaggio.

Jose Berrios gets the start for the Twins tonight.

Minnesota Twins Ryan LaMarre (24) runs past New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez as he scores on Brian Doier's single during the fifth inning of a baseball game in New York, Monday, April 23, 2018.

Oddly, their starters have held the opposition to ERAs of 1.06 in the second, 1.59 in the third and 2.12 in the fourth before seeing those figures spike back up in the middle innings.

NY has been up and down this season though they did win three of four from the Blue Jays over the weekend.

Masahiro Tanaka bounced back in a huge way Monday night going six and two-thirds innings, giving up one run on three hits while striking out five. The Yankees entered Monday 11-9 and stood 5.5 games behind the Red Sox in the AL East.

CC Sabathia will take the ball for the Yankees and will go up against young right-hander, José Berríos. He has pitched just 13.1 innings over his first three starts and has a 2.70 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP.

Duffey was converted into a full-time reliever last season, going 2-3 with a 4.94 ERA in 56 appearances with the Twins. Berrios has been electric this season and he's thrown zeroes as far as runs allowed in three of his four starts this year. The way this season has gone, it remains to be seen whether they stay hot or not. Before that, the Twins had won three of the previous four games between the teams, so give them a shot here.

The over is 5-0 in the Twins' last 5 road games and 3-1-1 in Berrios's last five starts on five days of rest.

No, this was the kind of evening Yankee fans have expected more often from the superstar slugger and the touted lineup, one in which they'd erupt in cheer and be wowed at Stanton's impressive power.
