Yankees 4, Twins 3
Anthony Swarzak allowed eight hits in 4 1/3 innings on Wednesday. (Jim Mone/AP)
With an RBI double and his 15th homer, Joe Mauer gave the Twins life early and late, but a subpar outing from fill-in starter Anthony Swarzak was the difference in a loss to the surging Yankees. Bob Keppel provided 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief, keeping his ERA on the season at 0.00.
