TWINS-YANKEES
 
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The starting pitching has been so dominant for the New York Yankees this year, it has almost overshadowed another potent offense that leads the major leagues in home runs. With Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton in the heart of the order, well, there’s just no hiding this familiarly loaded lineup. Rizzo hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to crack open a close game for the Yankees, who brushed off a rare rough start by Jameson Taillon to beat the Minnesota Twins 10-4 on Tuesday night for their seventh straight victory. Judge and Stanton got the visitors going with first-inning homers, the 23rd time they’ve gone deep in the same game in five seasons together. The Yankees have only lost once when that happens, in the Field of Dreams game in Iowa last Aug. 12.
