|NEW YORK (AP) -- After winning two games at Target Field, the New York Yankees have arrived home with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five AL division series against the Minnesota Twins.
Phil Hughes tries to wrap up a sweep Saturday night and put New York into the AL championship series against Texas or Tampa Bay. Brian Duensing pitches for the Twins.
Minnesota went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position in the first two games, down from .285 during the regular season. That's a big reason the Twins have lost 11 postseason games in a row, two shy of the record set by the Boston Red Sox from 1986-95.
