The New York Yankees will go for nine straight wins on Saturday, as they’ll play the penultimate game in their four-game series against Minnesota.
New York blitzed the Twins for six runs over the first two innings, and that proved to be more than enough for Nestor Cortes, who was brilliant once again, allowing two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings.
Perhaps the story of the game was Luke Voit, who continued to prove by going 4-for-5 with two RBI that his bat belongs in the lineup when Anthony Rizzo starts playing everyday again following his bout with COVID-19.
Will Voit and the Yankees make it nine in a row on Saturday? We certainly like their chances, especially with who they’re sending to the mound.

Yankees vs Twins Prediction Today
The Yankees have a shockingly bad record in games started by Gerrit Cole this season, but there’s just something different about this team right now. Minnesota is free-falling and we really want no part of betting against New York amid this winning streak.
