Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins 4/26

Good morning everyone and welcome to the fourth game of the four-game set this week between the Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees. The Twins have been just what the doctor ordered for the struggling Yankees as New York will look for yet another victory here this afternoon in the Bronx. Donned with the task of keeping the Yankees win train rolling this afternoon is Jordan Montgomery for New York while Minnesota will counter with Kyle Gibson.

Montgomery has won each of his last two starts against the Toronto Blue Jays and the Detroit Tigers respectively. Montgomery combined in those two starts to allow just four runs and nine hits in 12 innings of work. Montgomery was not sharp the last time he faced Minnesota though on July 19, 2017 inside Target Field where the lefty gave up six runs and seven hits in a loss for the Yankees.

Gibson on the other hand is coming off a loss in his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays despite it being his best pitching performance of the young season. When Gibson was removed from the game the Twins trailed the Rays 2-1 before the Minnesota bullpen imploded in an eventual 10-1 victory for Tampa Bay.

The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network locally and MLB Network if you’re outside of the Yankees market. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, getaway games are the best, and go Yankees!!
