New York Yankees
Justin Morneau hit two mammoth homers and Jason Marquis won his Minnesota debut with his healthy daughter in the stands, sending the Twins to a 6-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.
Joe Mauer and Jamey Carroll each had an RBI double in a four-run first inning against Hiroki Kuroda, helping the Twins improve to 9-34 at Yankee Stadium - including the playoffs - since Ron Gardenhire became manager in 2002. Minnesota has won two of three in the four-game set.
Morneau hit a two-run shot in the first and a solo drive in the fifth that chased Kuroda, who was coming off an excellent outing in New York's home opener Friday. The 2006 AL MVP, derailed by a concussion as well as wrist and neck injuries the past two seasons, has four home runs in his last six games - matching his total in 69 games last year.
Robinson Cano hit his first home run of the season for the Yankees and Derek Jeter his fourth. Kuroda (1-2) was roughed up for 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings after takin...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jason Marquis was spotted four runs before he ever took the mound in his Twins debut Wednesday.
He nearly gave that lead right back in his first-ever inning in a Minnesota uniform and his first start since Aug. 14 of last season, when he suffered a broken leg.
Marquis' first inning of work as a Twin was a shaky one, as he gave up three runs on four hits and two walks against...
Paced by Justin Morneau's continued success in the Bronx, the Minnesota Twins are in position to win their first series in New York in almost 11 years.
The Twins can accomplish that feat with a second straight victory over the Yankees on Thursday night.
Morneau doubled his home run total for the season with two in Wednesday's 6-5 win at Yankee Stadium. The 2006 AL MVP,...
The Minnesota Twins have cut infielder Luke Hughes to open a roster spot for pitcher Jason Marquis, who has been recalled from Double-A New Britain to start against the New York Yankees.
Marquis, who grew up in New York and still lives in the city, was set to make his first appearance with his new team. He signed a $3 million, one-year contract with the Twins in the offseason but...
The Minnesota Twins headed to the Big Apple at the beginning of the week as winners of just two games through their first three series this year. Minnesota was coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of arguably the best team in this early season, the Texas Rangers.
It was early, but the Twins were searching for answers.
While manager Ron Gardenhire's club lost Thursday...
Minnesota Twins pitcher Scott Baker had elbow-ligament replacement surgery Tuesday.
Baker originally was to have an operation to repair the flexor pronator tendon in his right elbow. The Twins said that when New York Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek operated, he determined Baker's ulnar collateral ligament needed to be replaced.
The Twins had said last week that Baker...
Minnesota Twins outfielder Denard Span and manager Ron Gardenhire were ejected in the third inning of Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees.
Span objected to a called strike and had a brief exchange with home plate umpire Greg Gibson. He then added a few more words when he returned to the batter's box and was ejected.
Gardenhire came out of the dugout to voice his...
For one night, it was almost as if the Twins were back. Better than back, actually, considering they had not won two games in a season at Yankee Stadium since 2001 -- Tom Kelly's final season as manager.
Grim realities likely await this club, but its 6-5 triumph over the Yankees on Wednesday night (giving the Twins two of three games in the series) was downright moving -- and...
Minnesota Twins center fielder Denard Span and manager Ron Gardenhire were ejected in the third inning of Tuesday night's game against the New York Yankees.
With a runner on first and one out, Span took a called strike from CC Sabathia on a pitch that appeared to be inside. Span stepped behind the batter's box and appeared to exchange words with plate umpire Greg Gibson...
Who knew he had it in him to break his bat while tapping it on home plate while going through his routine
For the first time all season, Justin Morneau played first base for the Minnesota Twins on Monday against New York. And, for the first time in a long time, Morneau did not bat behind fellow left-hander Joe Mauer in Minnesota's lineup.
The end result? A 7-3 win Monday over the Yankees in the first game of a four-game series, thanks in part to the new-look heart of the Twins&...
PWInsider reported last week that The Bella Twins were being brought to Europe for this week’s RAW but would not be used on this week’s live events. We noted that they appeared in a WWE.com segment on Monday to set up a Beth Phoenix vs. Nikki Bella Divas Title match.
The Twins are indeed working live events on the current tour as they defeated the team of Phoenix and Eve Torres...

Minnesota Twins 6 — New York Yankees 7

I would like to extend my deepest and more sincere thanks to Jim Tracy and the Colorado Rockies for sitting superstar shortstop Troy Tulowitzki last night…against a pitcher, Clayton Richard, who Tulo has absolutely owned throughout his career.
No really Rockies and Jim Tracy, thanks.
It’s not like the rest of my daily picks yesterday were dynamite and I was one solid day of production...
After splitting the first two games of this four-game set, the Yankees and Twins each sent out a question mark to pitch. For the Yankees, it was Hiroki Kuroda, coming off a complete game shutout but also with that shaky debut in Tampa Bay on his record. Jason Marquis of the Twins, a Yankees fan growing up and a 13-year veteran, was making his first career start at Yankee Stadium...
