Extra Special: Andujar HR, double as Yanks hammer Twins 14-1

Mauer and Dozier … and Cervelli in between

Mauer and Dozier … and Cervelli in between

Gregorius slapped a go-ahead single in the third after a one-out walk to Brett Gardner and a rocket double to left by Judge.

Homers, including Andujar's, which made history, weren't the only types of hits that were en vogue in the Yankees' 14-1 win over the Minnesota Twins, a team they have owned recently at Yankee Stadium.

"He's a really gifted hitter".

Miguel Andujar had a solo homer and a double to extend his streak to seven straight games with an extra-base hit, Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-4 with a walk, three singles, and a solo homer that had the fifth-highest exit velocity in MLB this season, Tyler Austin had a double, a homer, and four RBI, and even Gleyber Torres got into the act, notching his first major-league hit with a leadoff single in the eighth.

Drury is slated to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. It was his 22nd homer clocked at 115 miles per hour or higher since Statcast began in 2016.

"Obviously, guys are making progress from the injury front", Boone said before Andujar's latest productive game.

"I saw all my guys hitting pretty well", Torres said. "Because a couple of weeks ago, we were struggling just to get a team out there on a couple of those nights".

In addition to the young third baseman's solid night, the Yankees received production from Stanton, who went 4-for-4 with a walk en route to his first four-hit game in pinstripes.

The Yankees and Twins will play game two of this four-game series in the Bronx. During the skid, they are getting outscored 40-15 while pitching to a 10.43 ERA.

Twins leadoff man Brian Dozier extended his hitting streak to 17 games and 24 going back to last September with an RBI single as Minnesota dropped its fourth straight. He had a 24-gamer back in 2016.

Over on the Yankees' side, they're going with LHP CC Sabathia on Tuesday.

Jose Berrios lasted just four-plus frames Tuesday, giving up five runs in a loss to the Yankees.

Since homering three times in the series opener at Tampa Bay on April 20, the Twins have been outhomered 14-1 and outscored 40-11. Over his 13.1 innings this season, Sabathia has a 2.70 ERA but hasn't pitched past the fifth inning.

"He's gotten off to a very good start", Twins manager Paul Molitor said before Monday's game. Given the way things have gone, if Berrios is as good as he's been, it will take some offense from the Twins to push this one over but with the hitter friendly dimensions of Yankee Stadium, that's a definite possibility. In his 27.2 innings and 2-1 record this year, Berrios has a 1.63 ERA with 29 Ks.
