Andujar homers, doubles as Yankees thrash Twins

Berrios in the Wild Card Game

Minnesota is now 8-9 overall and 3-6 on the road. Now 68% of the wagers are going on the Yankees at home.

It happened again here on a chilly Monday evening in a 14-1 loss to the Yankees, just as it did last October in the wild-card loss and in so many other forgettable games over the past decade and a half.

Minnesota had a disappointing showing in the Sunshine State as they were swept over the weekend by the Rays.

Despite his streak ending, Dozier still has good numbers on the year.

Sanchez, whose second-inning home run tied the score, hit a two-run drive later in the seventh into the netting above Monument Park in center.

Miguel Andújar (3) continued his torrid hitting with a solo home run to left field in the second inning. Berrios recorded a no-decision in his last start, which came at home against Cleveland Wednesday. They have lost his last six Tuesday starts as well. He allowed five runs, six hits and two walks in four-plus innings, raising his ERA from 1.63 to 2.84.

NY has been up and down this season though they did win three of four from the Blue Jays over the weekend. The Yankees are now 12-9 overall and 8-5 at home. NY jumped to a 3-0 lead after two innings Sunday and that was more than enough in the contest.

A day after making his debut, Torres singled in the eighth, ending an none-for-seven start for the prized 21-year-old.

Five runs was plenty of support for Masahiro Tanaka, who allowed one run in 6.2 innings, giving up three hits and two walks hile striking out five as the right-hander bounced back from two rough outings.

CC Sabathia makes his fourth start tonight.

Berrios is 2-1 with a 1.63 ERA so far after winning 14 games last season.

Andujar was hardly the only productive Yankees player on a night when they set a season high for runs. Sabathia faces the Twins for the 39 time in his career in this contest.

Duffey was converted into a full-time reliever last season, going 2-3 with a 4.94 ERA in 56 appearances with the Twins. Look for him to handcuff the Yankees enough that the Twins scrape out a win here. "I was able to throw it inside - if you stay away, you become predictable, but when you throw it inside consistently, batters see it's there and it opens things up - and because I could do that, I think I was able to effectively use the splitter and slider". Torres is Baby bottle, Giancarlo Stanton is Volcano and Tyler Austin is Police vehicle.

The Twins have won four of Berrios' last five starts overall, but just two of his last 12 road starts.

"He's gotten off to a very good start", Twins manager Paul Molitor said before Monday's game.

A night after a 14-1 drubbing, NY beat Minnesota for the sixth straight time and improved to 27-9 against the Twins at new Yankee Stadium, including the playoffs.
