Allowed four runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings last time out against Cleveland. Pitched against the Twins earlier this year, going eight innings, while giving up just two runs in a win at Target Field.
Santana Notes: Has five career wins against the Yankees, but has not defeated them since 2008, a string of 10 starts. In four of his starts since returning from his PED suspension, Santana has allowed five or more runs. He gave up five runs in six innings during his last start against Texas. He is 0-3 with a 9.72 ERA in three career starts at the new Yankee Stadium.
Yankees Notes: They come in having won five of their last six games. For the 15th time in his career, Alex Rodriguez has hit at least 25 home runs in a season. Chase Headley has gotten on base safely in 24 of his last 25 games. The Yankees are 16-8 against the AL Central in 2015. This season, the Yankees are 20-16 in day games.
Twins Notes: With a loss last night, the Twins are 21-36 on the road this season. Minnesota has only one month (May) with a winning record. Now have a 13-12 record against the AL East this year. Miguel Sano is 9-for-25 with four home runs and 10 RBIs over the last week. Over his last 14 games, Shane Robinson is hitting .321.
