Yankees hurler Masahiro Tanaka triumphs in rout of Twins

Slumping Giancarlo Stanton homered in going 4 for 4 and Didi Gregorius hit a grand slam as the Yankees posted their first three-game winning streak under new manager Aaron Boone. He reached base five times - and hit his fifth home run of the season, a 435-foot shot - in a 14-1 rout of Minnesota. NY is putting up 6.05 runs per game on offense while allowing just 4.81 per contest. But showing sharp downward movement on his out-pitch, the split-fingered fastball, Tanaka kept the Twins in the ballpark, allowing his only run on a Brian Dozier single in the fifth.

"Hopefully this is something he continues to build off and starts a little bit of momentum toward being the guy we know he is, " Boone said. The Twins had hoped he could rejoin them Wednesday night in NY.

It happened again here on a chilly Monday evening in a 14-1 loss to the Yankees, just as it did last October in the wild-card loss and in so many other forgettable games over the past decade and a half.

The Twins have dropped four of the first five games on their road trip, which started with a split of two against the Cleveland Indians in Puerto Rico.

LaMarre wasn't taking a breather, he was in search of a pitcher's glove from one of the Twins' relievers still left in the bullpen.

Gary Sanchez delivered the big blow with a two-run, two-out double.

DiMaggio's seven-game streak for extra base hits was in June of 1937, while Mantle's was in May of 1955.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Yankees are the favorite at home, as they are getting odds of -135 to win tonight. In his 27.2 innings and 2-1 record this year, Berrios has a 1.63 ERA with 29 Ks. For now, it's the first that remains their bugaboo.

Against Minnesota right-hander Jake Odorizzi, Stanton drew a two-out walk in the first to extend the inning.

All told, the Yankees finally have their first three-game winning streak of the season on their fourth try, but if one thing sticks out from tonight, it's going to be Torres' first of hopefully thousands of Major League Baseball hits.

Twins: RHP Jose Berrios (2-1, 1.63 ERA) starts Tuesday night.

The Yankees are hoping pitcher Masahiro Tanaka (2-2, 6.45 ERA) can rebound from a rough start to the season, especially at home. Hicks popped up and Andujar grounded out, but Tyler Austin hit a two-run homer into the visiting bullpen.

Joe Mauer, trying to beat the shift in the first, was credited with just his sixth career sacrifice bunt and first since September 2015 when Tanaka pounced and threw him out.
