TWINS-YANKEES
 
NEW YORK (AP) – Luke Voit backed his recent demand for playing time with a homer, four hits and four RBIs, and the surging New York Yankees beat the Minnesota Twins 10-2 for their season-high eighth straight win. The burst came three days after the 2020 Major League home run leader implored manager Aaron Boone to keep him in the lineup, saying he deserved to play just as much as three-time All-Star Anthony Rizzo, acquired from the Cubs in July with Voit on the injured list. Rizzo returned this week after missing 10 days with COVID-19 but got the night off.
