Still searching for a Bronx win: Twins at Yankees 5/16

By: Kelly Thesier/

NEW YORK — The Twins are trying to avoid getting swept in the Bronx for the third straight season as Nick Blackburn takes the mound for the Twins against the Yankees on Sunday afternoon.

Sorry for the lack of lineups yesterday. I got a little swamped with some other work stuff.

As for news today, Matt Tolbert is getting the start at third because manager Ron Gardenhire wanted to give him some playing time. Nick Punto is just fine.
