Twins Win Is A Relief
The Twins not only beat the Yankees Tuesday night but they overcame some of their biggest concerns in the process. The Twins just haven't played well in New York losing 14 of their last 15 games there. Tuesday night they scored on the Yankee bullpen and closed the game out in extra innings. Joe Mauer had really struggled to start the year and he got the game-winning hit and Joe Nathan looked like a mess in his first save Sunday against Toronto. He sent the Yankees down 1-2-3 in the 10th for the save. 2-3 feels a lot better than 1-4. Minnesota just needs 1 win in their next 2 in New York to come home with confidence despite a 3-4 record.
