nyy-26-logo(Minneapolis, MN) – The Yanks continue their solid play and take another series with one left to play

Brett's 2-out single was huge early in the game

Brett's 2-out single was huge early in the game

with a gritty 4-3 win over the host Twins.  A big 2-out 2-RBI single from Brett Gardner gave the Yanks and early 3-0 lead but the Twins crept to 3-2 before A-Rod singled home Jeter for the 4th team run.  Joe Mauer continued to dominate Phil Coke hitting him again for a homer (did one in May also) but Phil Hughes pitched well in relief as did Mo for the final 4 outs and his 22nd save of the year.  A.J. Burnett (8-4) pitched 6.1 giving up only 2 runs and pitched well again.

The Yanks kept pace with Boston and remain one game back with a 50-34 mark so far with 4 left

before the All-Star break.
