Live Game Updates: Yankees at Twins - 6/16

8:51 p.m., End 2nd: CC leaves the bases-loaded in the second. He's struggled so far, but this one's still somehow scoreless. 

9:13 p.m., Mid 4th: Continuing their struggles from the Rockies series, the Yankees' bats are again flustered. They have recorded just two hits so far against Twins righty Kyle Gibson, who entered play tonight with an ERA over six.

9:29 p.m., End 4th: An RBI single by former Yankee Eduardo Nunez gives the Twins an early lead. CC's already at 83 pitches, so expect yet another long night for the bullpen.

9:51 p.m., End 5th: Now at 104 pitches, CC escapes trouble again in the fifth. Still, the Yankees trail 1-0.

10:06 p.m., Mid 6th: Ellsbury ties the game with an RBI single, but the Yankees should've had a lot more. Gardner and Beltran squander a bases-loaded, no-out opportunity with a popout and a double play, as the Yankees' offense continues its inability to produce. 

10:15 p.m., End 6th: CC comes back out and works a 1-2-3 sixth. His pitch count has reached 116; expect No Runs-DMC to take over from here.

10:28 p.m., Mid 7th: Didi breaks the tie with a bang. He crushes a three-run shot to right off lefty reliever Fernando Abad, and the Yankees have a 4-1 lead at stretch time.

10:37 p.m., End 7th: Betances throws a scoreless seventh. On to Miller.

10:54 p.m., End 8th: Miller fans two in a perfect eighth. On to Chapman.

11:11 p.m., End 9th: Chapman closes it out. Yankees win 4-1.
