NEW YORK (AP) - Gary Sanchez hit a three-run homer in the ninth off Fernando Rodney (1-2), extending New York's winning streak to six and completing an 8-2 homestand. The Yankees were held hitless through five innings and trailed 3-0 before Aaron Hicks' sacrifice fly in the seventh.
Dellin Betances (1-1) struck out the side on 13 pitches in the ninth for his first win since June 27.
Minnesota completed an 0-7 trip and has lost eight straight to New York, including last year's AL wild-card game.
