Ellsbury Gives Early Lead, Yanks Hold Off Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jacoby Ellsbury homered, doubled and drove in four runs as the New York Yankees took a huge lead, then held off the Minnesota Twins 9-7 Sunday.

Down 9-0 in the fourth inning, the Twins began rallying and eventually and brought the potential winning run to the plate with two outs in the ninth. Kurt Suzuki grounded out with runners at the corners to end it.

Before the game, the Yankees traded lefty Vidal Nuno to Arizona for right-handed starter Brandon McCarthy. New York also cut outfielder Alfonso Soriano.

Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki each had three hits for the Yankees, who have won 14 of 18 overall at Target Field.
