Yankees Beat the Twins Again Because Life Is Pain

Tale as old as time. Song as old as rhyme.

If you were excited for the return of Tommy Milone to the big leagues, that lasted almost four entire innings on Friday, which, for this Twins team, almost counts for something. But not really. The Yankees beat the Twins yet again, 5-3, pushing the Bombers' record against the Twins since 1999 to 145-2.  That's a rough guess.

In Milone's defense, of the four runs he gave up, only one was earned, but still, he did himself no favors, loading the bases in the fourth with nobody out. Errors by ED and Joe Mauer didn't help either, but the fact remains that he got 11 total outs. That's not gonna cut it.

The Twins actually held the lead twice on Friday, taking a 2-0 lead on a 2-run single from Third Ed in the third inning, and a 3-2 lead on an RBI grounder from Byron Buxton in the fourth. Again, this almost counts for something. But not really.

Studs: Neil Ramirez.  7 middle inning outs, zero runs, kept Minnesota in the game.  I did not know he was on the team, but he is definitely my favorite middle reliever.

Duds: Milone, ED, Mauer.
