Oswaldo Cabrera’s 12th-inning walk-off single lifted the New York Yankees past the Minnesota Twins, 5-4, on Wednesday afternoon in the first game of a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium. In the nightcap, the Yankees completed the sweep with a 7-1 victory.

Game 1 recap:

Isiah Kiner-Falefa tied the game with a run-scoring single in the 12th before Cabrera walked it off with a single, snapping an 0-for-25 skid.

Aaron Judge crushed his Major League-leading 55th home run of the season to get the scoring started for the Yankees. Gleyber Torres smacked a game-tying two-run homer in the sixth. That was his 19th long ball of the season.

Domingo Germán started on the mound and surrendered three runs over six innings. Ron Marinaccio allowed the lone run in relief, which was unearned.

Game 2 recap:

With the Yankees trailing 1-0 in the fourth inning, Isiah Kiner-Falefa crushed his first career grand slam, and New York never looked back after that. Aaron Hicks busted the game open with a bases-clearing double.

Gerrit Cole started on the hill and absolutely dominated. The right-hander surrendered just one run over 6 2/3 innings while striking out a season-high 14 batters. Lucas Luetge recorded the final seven outs and picked up the save.

The Yankees will go for the four-game sweep on Thursday. The first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
