The Yankees lit up Twins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco early and often in New York’s 9-7 win over the Twins Sunday at Target Field.

Nolasco allowed six runs on seven hits in just two innings of work before yielding to the bullpen. Anthony Swarzak followed up Nolasco by allowing three runs on four hits in three innings.

The Twins made it close thanks to good offensive games from Trevor Plouffe (3-4, 2 R, 2 RBI), Chris Colabello (2-3 2-R HR) and Oswaldo Arcia (2-4, 1 RBI) but couldn’t complete the comeback.

Minnesota is now 39-48 on the season and trail the Detroit Tigers by ten games in the American League Central division.  The Twins are 8.5 games behind Los Angeles and Seattle for a Wild Card spot.

The Twins are at Seattle tonight with a 9:10 start time. Kevin Correia gets the start for Minnesota at 4-10 against the Mariners Hisashi Iwakuma, who is currently 6-4.
