It hasn’t been an easy stretch of games lately for the New York Yankees.
But a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins helped give them a nice break in the schedule.
While on the surface it doesn’t seem like a huge break, given that the Twins are right in the thick of the playoff race, the Yankees have owned them over the past several years, dating all the way back to the 2003 season.
Including all five of the postseason series in which the Yankees have taken down the Twins, the Bronx Bombers have won 107 of their past 146 games against them, and they finished off a sweep of a day-night doubleheader last night.

Yanks Own The Twins
It must be something about playing the Twins for the Yankees, or vice versa.
The Twins just can’t seem to beat the Yankees in any way shape or form, whether it’s the regular season or the postseason, and the Yankees just don’t stop dominating them.
After a difficult weekend in St. Petersburg against the Tampa Bay Rays, New York returned home and took the first three games of their four-game set against the Twins.
They’ll look for a sweep this afternoon.
But sometimes, it’s easy to get dialed in against a certain team.
For the longest time, the Yankees have seemingly had the Twins’ number and that doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon.
Regular season or postseason, the matchup between the Yankees and Twins always appears to be a one-sided affair in favor of the Yankees.
