Yankees offensive struggles continue in series-opening loss to Twins

The New York Yankees (13-10) offensive struggles continued as they fell to the Minnesota Twins (13-10), 6-1, on Monday night at Target Field in Minneapolis. 

New York’s offense was completely shut down by former Yankee Sonny Gray, who tossed seven scoreless innings while allowing just three hits and striking out eight. 

The Yankees’ lone run came in the ninth inning on Oswaldo Cabrera’s RBI fielder’s choice.


Jhony Brito had trouble with the Twins lineup again as he recorded just eight outs and surrendered three runs. 

Greg Weissert and Albert Abreu each gave up a run in relief, while Wandy Peralta and Jimmy Codero had scoreless appearances. 

The Yankees will try to bounce back on Tuesday with Nestor Cortes on the mound. The first pitch is slated for 7:40 p.m.
