Austin, Didi power Yanks to 5th straight win

Didi Gregorius continued to swing one of the hottest bats in the game, and Tyler Austin crushed a three-run homer before making a terrific sliding catch in the late innings, helping to lead the Yankees to their fifth consecutive victory, a 7-4 decision over the Twins on Wednesday evening at Yankee Stadium.

Gregorius reached base five times while becoming the first Yankees shortstop to homer in four consecutive games, launching a third-inning solo shot off Twins starter Lance Lynn that landed for Gregorius’ team-leading ninth of the season. Austin followed three batters later with a blast down the left-field line to give New York the lead.
