Gardner had a hit and an RBI, Michael O'Neill drew a walk and Mark Teixeira had a hit.  Tyler Austin had a hit, Brian McCann had a hit and Romine had a hit and an RBI.  Chase Headley drew a walk, Gardner hit a homerun and the Yankees were 1-4 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Gardner committed an error and Eovaldi had a pickoff. 

In the third Danny Santana hit an RBI double giving the Twins a 1-0 lead.  In the fourth Gardner hit a solo homerun to tie the game at one.  In the sixth Santana hit an RBI double giving the Twins a 2-1 lead.  Brian Dozier hit an RBI single and it was 3-1 Twins and they kept it going in the sixth.  Byung Ho Park hit an RBI single and Eduardo Escobar hit an RBI single to make it 5-1 Twins.  In the ninth Romine hit an RBI single to cut the lead to 5-2 and that would be the final score.
