MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Gary Sanchez was struggling since coming off the disabled list [url=]Bill Melton Jersey[/url] , and the New York Yankees were off to a so-so September start.Facing the Minnesota Twins seems to be a cure-all.Sanchez had three hits, including a mammoth home run, J.A. Happ tossed six shutout innings and the Yankees continued their mastery of the Twins with a 7-2 win on Monday night.Could his first three-hit game since April 16 be a turning point for the catcher hitting .189?Ive hit the ball very hard all season and I havent got the results I wanted. If this is what it takes for me to find a good streak here or a good positive streak, yeah, why not, Sanchez said through an interpreter.New York has beaten Minnesota nine straight times, including last years wild card game, outscoring the Twins 66-23. The Yankees are 20-4 in the teams meetings since July 25, 2015.The Yankees, 5-4 in the seasons final month, increased their lead over idle Oakland to three games for the first AL wild-card spot.Happ (16-6) allowed six hits and struck out three. Acquired fr om Toronto on July 26 [url=][/url] , the left-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in six of eight starts for New York, going 6-0 with a 2.70 ERA.I ran into a couple outings before I came over where I really wasnt getting strike one as much as I needed to, he said. Tonight, I felt like I was ahead in the count a lot and kind of forced them to be aggressive and swing.Kyle Gibson (7-13) allowed four hits and one earned run in 5 2/3 innings. He was one batter away from tossing six shutout innings before Sanchez crushed low 2-2 fastball 460 feet into the third deck in left field.Weve talked before about a guys sweet spot, and some guys like the ball down and thats probably on the fringe of wh ere he likes the ball the most, Gibson said.Before the bomb, Sanchez was 3 for 29 since coming off the disabled list on Sept. 1.You always feel like hes a guy that can get it rolling, and when he does, hes, from a talent standpoint, one of those guys that can carry a club offensively [url=]Early Wynn Jersey[/url] , manager Aaron Boone said.New Yorks first eight batters reached base in a six-run seventh. Miguel Andujar had a two-run double and later scored on a double by Giancarlo Stanton, who had been in a 3-for-35 slump. Didi Gregorius doubled home Stanton.New York was 5 for 17 with runners in scoring position after going 4 for 35 in its previous six games.Finally, a lot of really good at-bats to kind of break that game open. It was something I feel like we needed and glad that a lot of guys had a hand in it, Boone said.JUDGE GETS HIS CUTSYankees slugger Aaron Judge took on-field batting practice for the first time since fracturing his right wrist on July 26.The session included home runs to multiple fields by the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year.It went really well; another big step for him to get out on the field, Boone said.After the game, Judge refused to put a timeline on his return.I really dont want to put myself in a box by setting a date and then not making it. . I just need to keep moving forward until the day I get out there.TRADING GEMSTwins left fielder Johnny Field made a sliding grab in the fifth to rob Andujar of a hit and save two runs. Third baseman Andujar returned the favor in the bottom of the inning, snaring a sharp liner by Field.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: 1B Luke Voit has been dealing with back stiffness for a couple of days and wants to play through it, but Greg Bird got the start.Twins: 3B Miguel Sano missed his fifth straight game with lower left leg issues including a sore knee that he sustained sliding into second base last Tuesday. 1B Tyler Austin went through hitting drills and took batting practice but missed his fourth straight game with a stiff back.UP NEXTTo provide extra rest for Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka, New Yorks Sonny Gray (10-8, 4.96) is scheduled for a spot start on Tuesday. Removed from the rotation in early August, Gray tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his last spot start [url=]Avisail Garcia Jersey[/url] , on Aug. 25 in Baltimore. Minnesota will send RHP Tyler Duffey (1-2, 9.00) to the mound for his first start of the season.__ Opening day was particularly special for Fernando Tatis Jr. and Eloy Jimenez.In large part because they werent stuck at El Paso and Charlotte.Its common for baseballs top prospects to spend a bit of time in the minors at the beginning of the season, but the Padres and White Sox put Tatis and Jimenez on the roster this year, and they made their big league debuts Thursday. Tatis, a shortstop, had two hits in San Diegos win over San Francisco . Jimenez, an outfielder, had a run and an RBI in Chicagos loss to Kansas City .Jimenez hit .355 in 55 games at Triple-A Charlotte last year, and shortly before the start of this season, he signed a $43 million, six-year contract a record high for a player under club control who hadnt yet appeared in a major league game.So it was no surprise to see Jimenez in the majors right away. Tatis situation was different. Delaying a players service time for a few weeks can delay potential free agency down the road [url=][/url] , and Tatis hadnt played above Double-A. But instead of sending him to Triple-A El Paso, the Padres brought him right to the majors.I told my dad, my head was in the minor leagues, Tatis said. If they sent me down, I was not surprised. If they called me up, it was going to be a big surprise.Tatis, who turned 20 on Jan. 2, became the youngest player to start on opening day since 19-year-old Adrian Beltre in 1999. He became the youngest player with a multihit game on opening day since Robin Yount in 1975.Tatis is ranked as the games No. 2 prospect by, behind only Vladimir Guerrero Jr. The debate about whether Guerrero should start the season with the Toronto Blue Jays or in the minors became moot when he went down with a strained left oblique.ALREADY?It didnt take long for some position players to take the mound this year.The circumstances this time: The Dodgers and Diamondbacks played a 13-inning marathon Friday night that lasted over six hours. On Saturday, Los Angeles beat Arizona 18-5, with Diamondbacks catcher John Ryan Murphy giving up seven runs in two innings of relief. Dodgers catcher Russell Martin also pitched [url=]Bobby Jenks Jersey[/url] , retiring the side in the ninth on 10 pitches.ALL OR NOTHINGTheres been plenty of talk over the past few years about baseball becoming a game of home runs and strikeouts, and the very early returns in 2019 indicate nothing is changing in that regard. So far, 23.2 percent of all plate appearances have resulted in a strikeout, and 3.3 percent have resulted in a homer.The numbers last season were 22.3 and 3.0.HIGHLIGHTLorenzo Cain robbed Jose Martinez of a tying home run for the final out of Milwaukees 5-4 win over St. Louis on opening day. Martinezs pinch-hit drive nearly cleared the wall in right-center, but Cain brought the ball back, giving the Brewers the victory.LINE OF THE WEEKWhile much of the focus was on Bryce Harper and Manny Machado as they began playing for the Phillies and Padres, Paul Goldschmidt got off to quite a start with the Cardinals. Goldschmidt, who was traded from Arizona to St. Louis in the offseason, homered three times in a 9-5 win over Milwaukee on Friday night.Goldschmidt was denied a chance at a fourth home run when he was intentionally walked in the ninth inning.
