The tide has turned at Target Field.

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira launched a one-out double to left field in the top of the sixth inning, ending a streak of 10 straight retired batters by Twins ace Francisco Liriano. 

A wild pitch gave Teixeira third base and then Alex Rodriguez drew a walk.  Robinson Cano, who had 109 RBI during the regular season, drove in Teixeira just a few moments later to put the Yankees on the board 3-1.

Liriano rallied for a strikeout of Marcus Thames, but Jorge Posada sailed a single to right field that scored A-Rod and moved the Yankees to a slim one-run deficit.  Curtis Granderson hit a towering triple off the center field wall in the next at-bat that lifted the Yanks to a 4-3 lead and knocked Liriano out of the game.

Liriano finished with seven strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings.  He allowed four runs, all in the sixth inning, and walked three.  The Yankees lead by a run heading into the bottom of the sixth inning.

    Sabathia just knows how to win. Oh, did I say “win”? I meant “dig his team an early 3-0 hole, then, when given a one-run lead with a huge rally, walk in the tying run.” I get those two things confused so often.
