A rare easy win for the Bombers last night — it was only the team’s second win by more than three runs since Aug. 13, a stretch of 40 games. The Yankees jumped all over hapless Twins pitcher Brian Duensing for six runs in the third inning, including an incredible THREE HITS IN A ROW WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION (the caps lock seems justified given the Yankees’ atrocious hitting with RISP this year). Handed an early 6-1 lead, C.C. Sabathia took care of the rest, shutting down the Twins over eight innings and allowing just two runs. The 8-2 win kept the Yanks 1.5 games ahead of the Orioles, who are idle Thursday.
