Twins Take Weekend Series Against Yankees After 10-4 Win Sunday

What a weekend for the Twins in New York; they took two of three games from the Bronx Bombers including a 10-4 win for Kyle Gibson over CC Sabathia. For desperate Twins fans, it doesn’t get much better than that.

On Saturday the Twins snapped a six game losing streak with a 4-1 win, but Sunday’s victory was even sweeter as Gibson picked up his second win.

Already up 2-0 in the third, Aaron Hicks hit one out to give the twins a commanding 5-0 lead.

In the fourth, Ryan Doumit put a ball in play and a fielding error allowed two more Twins runs to score making it 8-1. Although the Yankees would battle back to make it 8-4, additional runs by the Twins in the eighth and ninth allowed them to pull away.

Again Minnesota wins the series against the Yankees 2-1 after a big 10-4 win on Sunday.

The win marked Minnesota’s largest margin of victory in the Bronx in exactly 18 years, since Tom Kelly’s squad downed Buck Showalter’s Bombers 11-4 on July 14, 1995. The Twins’ streak of 70 straight road games without a win by more than five runs against New York was their second-longest against any opponent since moving to the Twin Cities in 1961.
