Twins beat Sabathia, sloppy Yankees 10-4
NEW YORK (AP) - Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer a pitch after shortstop Eduardo Nunez made a two-out throwing error, and the Minnesota Twins took advantage of some Yankees miscues and misfortune to beat CC Sabathia for the first time in six years and end more than a decade of misery in the Bronx with a 10-4 win Sunday.
Justin Morneau had three hits - two very well placed - as Minnesota took two of three from New York to win a series at Yankee Stadium for the first time since taking a set at the old ballpark in 2001. Still, the Twins are 9-31 here starting in 2002.
They'd had even less success against Sabathia (9-8), going 0-11 in 12 games including the postseason after beating him on July 29, 2007.
