New York’s 7-Game Win Streak Boosts Pinstripes to 70 Wins, Lead in AL Wild Card
The resurgent Yankees can’t stop winning. Thursday’s 7-5 victory of the Twins marked the Yankees’ seventh straight ‘W’ en route to 70 wins and a lead in the AL wild card race. Kyle Higashioka was last night’s star, raking a home run and driving in 3 RBIs in Game 1 of a four-game series with Minnesota. Giancarlo Stanton also went yard for his 20th HR of the season. New York’s seven-game streak is the best in baseball as the season inches toward the final month before playoffs.
