Yankees Vs. Twins: New York Falls 6-5 On Wednesday Night

Staten Island native Jason Marquis held the New York Yankees to four runs in five innings of work for his first win of the season and his first win with the Minnesota Twins. One night after winning, the Yankees lost their second game of the series to the visiting Twins.

Hiroki Kuroda failed to get through five innings. He was pulled with one out in the fifth after allowing the Twins to score all six of their runs. The Yankees bullpen finished the game, giving their hitters a chance to get it back, but the Twins bullpen proved to be just as effective.

Justin Morneau took Kuroda deep twice. Chris Parmelee had two hits.

Robinson Cano and Derek Jeter both sent one out, Jeter a ninth inning solo shot that put the Yanks within one run.

The two teams close out the series on Thursday at 7:05 p.m. before a weekend trip to Boston.
