Twins Vs. Yankees: Minnesota Faces Familiar Foe In CC Sabathia

The Minnesota Twins picked up a rare win at Yankee Stadium on Monday night and will now look to make it two straight. Prior to last night, the Twins had won just five of their last 33 games in the Bronx.

On Tuesday, the Twins will also look to change their luck against CC Sabathia, who has posted a 2.98 ERA in 30 career starts against Minnesota. Sabathia will be looking for his first win this year after receiving no-decisions in his first two starts.

But it won't matter how Sabathia does if Francisco Liriano can't get one track for Minnesota. He has gotten off to a shaky start this season, allowing 10 runs and 20 baserunners over his first nine innings.

The game between the Twins and Yankees is scheduled to begin at 6:00 CT.
