Phil Hughes pitched well, people, and the Yankee offense is still eating meat, scrapping together a few runs–thank you Alberto “3 RBI” Gonzalez–before Robbie Cano pelted a three-run home run to put the game away.
Sure, Mariano Rivera had to come in to get a cheap-one out save in the 9th, but otherwise, not much to complain about.
Final Score: Yanks 7, Twins 3.
Hiroki Kuroda returned to New York for an MRI on his hip flexor but appears to be okay. Phew.
