Yankees beat Twins, 5-1, in series opener

He yankees had 13 hits against the Minnesota Twins and won 5-1 Tuesday night in Minneapolis.

Here are the conclusions…

-In a game where every starter in New York’s lineup had at least one hit, we would be remiss not to start the offense. Antonio Volpe gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead in the second inning with a double after the inning began with three straight hits and a sacrifice fly from Oswaldo Cabrera. Volpe went 2-for-5 as a leadoff hitter and now has 21 RBIs on the season.

-After Volpe’s scoring double, New York never trailed again thanks to the starter. Carlos Rodón who was on his game for most of the night. The left-hander allowed a leadoff home run for ryan jeffers in the bottom of the first that started the scoring, and two more singles followed, but after that, he was stuck and allowed the New York offense to do its thing.

The 31-year-old has allowed at least one home run in four straight starts and has allowed eight long balls in 49.1 innings this season, which is something to keep an eye on.

After his shaky first inning, Rodón calmed down and went 6-plus innings and allowed only one run on six hits, striking out six and walking none. He came out in the seventh inning with 98 pitches, but was pulled by the manager. Aaron Boone after allowing a leadoff single to Carlos Santana. Still, the left-hander got his fourth win of the season.

-The Yankees expanded their lead in the third and fourth innings against the Minnesota starter. Chris Paddack. Arrive first Giancarlo Stanton‘s vicious home run to left-center field that traveled 427 feet and had an exit velocity of 114 mph, proving that when he hits, Stanton remains one of the most dangerous hitters in the game. He finished 2-for-5.

New York got a rally with two outs in the fourth started with a walk to juan soto. Aaron judge kept the line moving with a single that brought up Alex Verdugo who quickly doubled both runners to give the Yankees a 5-1 lead.

-Despite having more opportunities to score during the rest of the game (New York went 4-for-12 with RISP and left 11 men on base), that’s how things remained until the final out.

Ian Hamilton and Holmes Clay They combined to throw three scoreless innings as the Yankees’ bullpen continues to be a huge asset to them.

-Along with Volpe and Stanton, Gleyber Torres and Cabrera also had two hits each.

MVP of the match: Carlos Rodón

-Rodon was more than solid for the second consecutive start after his only failure of the season against the Baltimore Orioles on May 2. He now he just needs to keep the ball in the yard more often.
