The Twins dropped to 8-8 on the year with the loss Sunday: two of their three losses to Tampa Bay were of the walk-off variety. He was 3-for-30 in eight appearances between then and Monday. Sabathia returned Thursday and allowed two unearned runs and four hits in 4 1/3 innings during a 4-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
After two starts in which he gave up six earned runs, Tanaka needed a good start to get back on track.
LaMarre's career ERA goes from 0.00 to 5.40, as he's given up one run in 1.2 career innings of work.
Stanton, who was the DH on Monday, finished the game 4-for-4 with two RBI, three runs and a walk.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are 6-1 in Sabathia's last seven home starts and 1-5 in his last six Tuesday starts. Berrios lost his lone career start at Yankee Stadium, which came on September 19, 2017. If the NY offense falls asleep early in the game, they may not come out of it soon enough to manage a win. The Yankees' No. 3 hitter, Didi Gregorius, drove in four runs on one swing. Andujar is 15 for 29 (.517) during that span with eight doubles, a triple and three home runs, raising his season average from.107 to.316.
National Basketball Association roundup: Wizards even series with Raptors
While Washington's 1-2 punch of Wall and Beal delivered, so did a willing and able support cast. The Raptors were up 51-40 at halftime, and increased that advantage early in the third quarter.
CC Sabathia makes his fourth start tonight. He is 2-1 through four starts with a 1.63 ERA and a 0.58 WHIP. He took the loss past year in the AL wild-card game, allowing three runs and five hits over three innings in relief. Look for him to handcuff the Yankees enough that the Twins scrape out a win here. "I was able to throw it inside - if you stay away, you become predictable, but when you throw it inside consistently, batters see it's there and it opens things up - and because I could do that, I think I was able to effectively use the splitter and slider". Three of their four games against the White Sox were wiped out last weekend and they entered Monday having played just 16 games. They have a ton of talent but they haven't gotten the type of production they expected from guys like Giancarlo Stanton. Miguel Andujar had a homer and a double, extending his streak with an extra-base hit to seven games. Sabathia is making his second start since coming off the DL here so he'll likely still be monitored.
The Twins have won four of Berrios' last five starts overall, but just two of his last 12 road starts.
In the opener of this matchup, the Yankees took an early series lead with a huge offensive display 14-1.
No, this was the kind of evening Yankee fans have expected more often from the superstar slugger and the touted lineup, one in which they'd erupt in cheer and be wowed at Stanton's impressive power.
