Yankees Top Twins to Extend AL East Lead

Andy Pettitte turned in another ageless performance with six scoreless innings and the New York Yankees hit four home runs Monday night to beat Minnesota 6-3 and extend their AL East lead.

The Yankees took a 1 1/2-game edge over Baltimore, which split a doubleheader with Toronto. This is the first time Sept. 2 their margin has been more than one game.
After playing three tense, one-run games against Oakland over the weekend, including their startling comeback for a 14-inning win on Saturday, the Yankees enjoyed an easy one for a change. This was New York’s 10th victory in 12 games.
