Six different players went deep as the Twins cruised past the Yankees 7-1 in the Bronx. Brian Dozier, Trevor Plouffe and Max Kepler hit back-to-back-back homers in the sixth for Minnesota, which avoided a three-game sweep. Tyler Duffey retired the first 17 batters he faced. He ended up striking out eight while giving up just one run and two hits over eight innings as he moved to 3-and-6.
The Twins will open up a three-game series with the White Sox tomorrow night in Chicago. Kyle Gibson will be on the bump still seeking his first win. He is 0-and-5 with a 6.05 ERA. The Sox will counter with left-hander Jose Quintana, who is 5-and-7 with a 3.04 ERA.
The Wild added four new members to the organization during the NHL Entry Draft over the weekend. The Wild used their first pick, 15th overall, to select center Luke Kunin out of the University of Wisconsin. They added winger Brandon Duhaime in the fourth round, while using their seventh round selections on winger Dmitry Sokolov and Brayden Chizen.
The Washington Mystics outscored the Lynx by 20 in the first quarter and never looked back in an 87-63 rout in DC. Minnesota has now lost two in-a-row since starting the season 13-and-0. The Lynx host New York on Wednesday.
