"It stinks. Liam did a good job. Our hitters got us enough to win the game, and I didn’t do my job. It’s just as disappointing as any other bad outing. We needed a win today to avoid a sweep.

The Twins make their first extended road trip of the season, heading to American League East powerhouses New York and Tampa Bay for four with the Yankees and three with the Rays. It is the Twins' only trip to either city this year.

Keep an eye on: Carl Pavano, who is making just his second start in New York since his acrimonious Yankees tenure, and his first start there since early 2009.
