Helped by 3 errors, Yanks beat Twins 5-3 to get back to .500
Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman combined for three innings of perfect relief for the second straight game, Rob Refsnyder hit a tiebreaking single and the New York Yankees took advantage of three errors to rally past the Minnesota Twins 5-3 Friday night.
Masahiro Tanaka (5-2) beat the Twins for the second time in seven days, allowing three runs and seven hits in six innings.
New York's "No Runs DMC" relief trio improved to 11-0 when all appearing together, with Chapman striking out three batters on 11 strikes — for his 14th save in 15 chances. His first 10 pitches were all 100 mph or more on the scoreboard before freezing Kurt Suzuki with a changeup for a called third strike.
None of the three relievers have allowed a ball out of the infield in their last two outings.
