The New York Yankees (43-19) began a six-game homestand on Tuesday night and picked up a 5-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins (33-27) to extend their win streak to six games.

Luis Gil turned in another stellar outing, tossing six shutout innings while allowing just one hit and striking out six. The right-hander improved to 8-1 on the season and lowered his ERA to 1.82, the best in the American League.

Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton went deep, while Aaron Judge had a go-ahead double.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to win another series on Wednesday when they hand the ball to Carlos Rodón. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
