The Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees exchanged the lead five times on Sunday, but the Twins ended up on top with a 7-2 win over the Yankees.

The Twins finally managed to grab the lead after a strong ninth inning. The Twins scored on an RBI double by Brian Dozier off David Robertson, plating Kurt Suzuki.

It was a good day at the plate for the Twins' Josh Willingham. Josh went 1-4, drove in one and scored one run. He homered in the ninth inning.

Phil Hughes picked up the win for the Twins. Hughes pitched eight innings and allowed two earned runs, three hits and two walks while striking out six.

Robertson was charged with the loss. He lasted just two-thirds of an inning, walked three, struck out two, and allowed five runs.

The top of the third saw the Twins take an early lead, 1-0. Aaron Hicks started the rally for the Twins with a single. A groundout by Brian Dozier then moved Hicks from first to second. Trevor Plouffe singled, bringing home Hicks.

The Twins never surrendered the lead after the ninth inning. The runs piled on thanks to a two-run double by Eduardo Nunez, a solo home run by Willingham, and a two-run single by Oswaldo Arcia.
