Two American League division leaders will meet Tuesday when the Twins host the Yankees, and you can watch it for free at 7:40 p.m. ET/6:40 p.m. CT as MLB.TV’s Free Game of the Day.
The Yankees enter Tuesday’s game on a six-game winning streak, during which their starting pitchers have gone 5-0 with a 0.85 ERA in 42 1/3 innings.
The Bronx Bombers, who have MLB’s best record at 39-15, will send Jameson Taillon to the hill after he took a perfect-game bid into the eighth inning Thursday against the Angels at Yankee Stadium.
The Twins, meanwhile, are coming off a road series in Toronto in which they took two of three from the Blue Jays. After a last-place finish in 2021, Minnesota is leading the AL Central with a 32-24 record this season.
In addition to the MLB leader in batting average (.358) and on-base percentage (.447), Twins infielder Luis Arraez, Tuesday’s matchup will feature four players who rank among the AL’s top 10 in homers — MLB leader Aaron Judge (21 homers), Anthony Rizzo (13 homers) and Giancarlo Stanton (11 homers) on the New York side and Byron Buxton (12 homers) on the Minnesota side.
