Yankees quiz: First 20 games of 2018

New York Yankees' Gleyber Torres warms-up before the game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium Sunday

Seven of the 12 outs he recorded were on strikeouts, he only walked two batters and 57 o his 93 pitches were strikes. (The Twins, naturally, have hit none so far.) Judge finished a triple short of the cycle by crushing his second in two nights, this one off newcomer Tyler Duffey, and Sanchez racked up his ninth career two-homer game by lifting a Duffey fastball four rows deep in right-center.

Minnesota will close out a nine-game road trip with the first of four matches at Yankee Stadium, while NY wraps up a 10-game homestand.

"He's a really gifted hitter", Boone said of Andujar, who hit his third homer and doubled Monday. It's Melky, not Melkey, but all good, we get it. He went 5-for-23 before being sidelined with migraine headaches and blurred vision on April 7.

Yankees: INF Brandon Drury is set to play a rehab game Wednesday at Triple-A. All three of those extra-base hits were clubbed at an exit velocity in excess of 110 miles per hour, with Stanton's 435-foot homer leading the way at 115.7 miles per hour.

"Obviously, guys are making progress from the injury front", Boone said before Andujar's latest productive game. I think guys are starting to up and down more have those quality at-bats. "Because a couple of weeks ago, we were struggling just to get a team out there on a couple of those nights". The Twins are second in the AL Central at 8-and-9, two-and-a-half games behind the first-place Indians. Their bullpen, including a position player and the since-demoted Gabriel Moya, has allowed 23 earned runs over 13 1/3 innings in that span for a 15.53 ERA. And immediately, Dozier smoked an RBI single to extend the hit streak to 17 games (and 24 games dating back to last year). Going back to September 22, he is hitting.373 (38-for-102) during a 24-game hitting streak.

Homers, including Andujar's, which made history, weren't the only types of hits that were en vogue in the Yankees' 14-1 win over the Minnesota Twins, a team they have owned recently at Yankee Stadium. Carson Fulmer (1-1) allowed two runs and three hits in a season-high six innings. He is 19-9 with a 3.16 ERA in 38 career starts against the Twins.

After a so-so start to the season, the Yankees have now won four out of their last five and it seems they may have found a groove. An Eduardo Escobar double in the first inning scored Miguel Sano when Aaron Judge bobbled the pickup, but Sabathia responded by putting the Twins to sleep. This need will be shown in this series against a quality right hander looking for a bounce back game like Lance Lynn. Boone is going to be careful with him and monitor him, especially if the weather is as lousy as it's been for much of the first month of the season.
