TWINS 3, YANKEES 1
Jake Odorizzi’s no-hit bid was broken up when Greg Bird hit a run-scoring double with one out in the eighth inning, and Minnesota beat the Yankees to take two of three from New York.
The Yankees’ lead over Oakland for the AL’s top wild card was cut to one game.
Odorizzi walked Like Voit before Bird lined the next pitch deep into the left-center gap. Odorizzi was immediately removed from the game by manager Paul Molitor and tipped his cap to the crowd as he walked off the field to a standing ovation. Odorizzi (6-10) struck out five and walked three, matching his big league high of 120 pitches set while pitching for Tampa Bay against the Twins on June 3, 2016.
Taylor Rogers struck out Gleyber Torres, and Trevor Hildenberger fanned Andrew McCutchen. Hildenberger finished for his sixth save. Luis Severino (17-8) allowed one run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings, dropping to 3-6 in his last 11 starts.
