Yankees roll Twins behind four homers, 14-1

Mauer and Dozier … and Cervelli in between

Chicago became the first big league team to open a game with seven straight hits since Colorado against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers on September 17, 2014, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. In those games, he is batting.517 (15-for-29) with three homers, eight runs scored, eight RBIs and 10 extra-base hits.

In the bottom of the fifth, Giancarlo Stanton (5) gave the Yankee fans something to cheer about, hitting a 435-foot bomb into the left-field bleachers.

"He used the fastball enough to really set up his other pitches, and he stayed away from the slug for the most part with the fastball", Boone said of Tanaka.

-Torres is excited to have his first career hit, but he wasn't feeling any pressure even after seven straight at-bats without it: "It's exciting, because I'm super happy and everybody was happy for me, but no, (no pressure); I love that I got it, but every at-bat I'm getting more comfortable, and now I have a ball to keep safe and show to all my family".

Drury was acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks in spring training to give the Yankees a little more experience than Andujar.

Drury is slated to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He has five home runs this season, three of which have come in Yankee Stadium.

"It was cool", Boone said. "The more talented guys that we can have in the mix, I look forward to those options".




The Yankees opened as -215 favorites (wager $215 to win $100); the total is at nine runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. Sadly for him and for the Twins, that streak ended with an 0-for-4 performance against the Yankees.

Minnesota's bullpen particularly has struggled. He allowed three runs on five hits with four walks and four strikeouts over 3.1 innings in a 5-2 Twins loss.

The lone positive from the series opener was Brian Dozier running his hitting streak to 17 games with an RBI single. And yet, it is not the longest hitting streak of Dozier's career. He was a regular member of Minnesota's rotation in 2016, posting a 9-12 record to go with a 6.43 ERA in 26 starts.

The Twins are 4-1 in Berrios' last five starts and 2-10 in his last 12 road starts. Tanaka was lifted with 91 pitches after a two-out walk in the seventh.

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

Berrios enters with a scoreless streak of 14 innings and has issued one walk to his first 99 hitters faced.

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.
