The Twins pulled off a big win defeating the New York Yankees 7-3 at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. 

It's the first win for the Twins at Yankee Stadium since June of 2016, snapping an eight-game losing streak.

Mitch Garver put Minnesota on the board in the top of the third with a two-run home run. The catcher had another big day at the plate going 3-5 and is slashing .333/.387/.719 on the season.

After Byron Buxton scored in the fifth, CJ. Cron padded the team's lead with a solo blast in the sixth inning.

Starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi was superb for a second straight start, going six innings, allowing just two hits with eight strikeouts. He hasn't allowed a run in his past 13 innings pitched.

Minnesota's bullpen did run into some trouble, as relievers Trevor Hildenberger and Blake Parker surrendered three runs, but Parker got a huge double play to end the eight inning. 

In the top of the ninth, designated hitter Nelson Cruz added a solo shot for good measure, with Taylor Rodgers shutting the door in the bottom half to secure the victory.

With Saturday's win, the Twins improve to 20-11 and will close out the series with the Bronx Bombers on Sunday with first pitch at 3:05 C.T. The game was originally scheduled to be played at noon but due to the inclement weather in New York, the Yankees moved the start time.

Michael Pineda will start for the Twins.
