Listless Yankees Fall To Twins

In fashion a-typical of a Joe Girardi team, the New York Yankees limped into the All Star break by losing an uninspired Sunday matinee game to the Twins, 10-4.

C.C. Sabathia, normally a work horse, lasted only four innings, allowing eight hits and three earned runs. He also surrendered a handful of unearned runs in the fourth, when Aaron Hicks capitalized on inning extended by sloppy play with a three run homer to left field. The blast extended the Twins early lead to 5-0, and they continued to tack on insurance runs on throughout the afternoon.

The Yankees biggest opportunity to come back came in the bottom of the fourth when they loaded the bases against Kyle Gibson with no outs. However, the Bombers squandered the chance and came away with just two runs, both scored on fielder’s choice ground outs.

Ichiro drove in two runs, including a solo home run in the seventh. Chris Stewart and Robinson Cano provided the other two RBIs.

The Yankees head into the mid-season break at 51-44, which is good for fourth place in the American League East.
