With their best hitter on a roll, the Yankees’ offense has some life again. Robinson Cano’s sixth straight multi-hit game included the game-tying double and the game-winning run in a 3-2 win against the Twins. Three days after being swept in Baltimore, the Yankees are now one win away from a four-game series sweep in Minnesota. Down by two in the sixth, Cano doubled in two runs to tie, then he scored on Lyle Overbay’s sacrifice fly to center field. Three runs was enough for CC Sabathia who lasted through the seventh allowing two runs and striking out nine. He put himself into trouble several times but made big pitches to limit the damage and give the Yankees their first three-game winning streak in nearly a month. Mariano Rivera won a matchup against Joe Mauer to end the game and preserve Rivera’s 28th save.
