Yankees dominate Twins in three-game sweep, continuing their winning streak against Minnesota

The Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees ended their three-game series on Thursday with a 5-0 victory at Target Field. The win marked the Yankees’ dominance over the Twins as they completed their sweep against them. In fact, this was the 120th time the Yankees had won against the Twins since 2002, which is quite an impressive statistic.

The game started off with some impressive hitting from Aaron Judge, who hit two doubles. Clarke Schmidt also shone with eight strikeouts in a career-high eight innings. Unfortunately for the Twins, they failed to score for the second consecutive day, resulting in 28 straight scoreless innings after Ryan Jeffers’ leadoff home run at the start of the series Tuesday night.

Despite Judge’s quiet April and Gerrit Cole’s absence due to an elbow injury, the Yankees have still managed to lead the American League in runs scored (216) and fewest runs allowed (149). This dominance has been evident not only against the Twins but also against other teams this season. With a record of 30-15, they are currently leading their division by two games and are one game behind Tampa Bay Rays for first place in the AL East.

Looking ahead, the Twins will visit Yankee Stadium from June 4-6. It remains to be seen whether they will face off against their rivals in a postseason matchup if both teams qualify for it. However, for now, they must regroup and focus on their upcoming games if they want to continue their successful run this season.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone praised Schmidt’s performance during this series, calling him “dominant” and “in complete control.” This marks only the third time since 2007 that a pitcher has thrown more than seven innings without allowing any runs against Minnesota at Target Field.

Overall, this series was a testament to how dominant the Yankees have become this season despite some of their top players being out due to injuries. As long as they can keep up this pace of excellence, there is no doubt that they will be contenders in any postseason race that comes their way.
