TONIGHT: Game 151 | 83-67 | AL East: -3 GB | Wild Card: +5 The Big Man toes the rubber for the Yankees tonight in an attempt to both clinch a series win against the visiting Minnesota Twins — and keep pressure on the first place Boston Red Sox, who’s lead remains at 3 games with 12 to play after last night’s meltdown by Baltimore pitching — who could see that coming? Nevertheless, the pinstripes will keep grinding and we’ll see what happens. For a division tie, the Yankees need to go 9-3 while Boston goes 3-9. Probability less than 1%, but that’s why they play ’em. Let’s see who’s hot and who’s not in tonight’s showdown against José Berrios.
