MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli made a throwing error in the 11th inning that allowed Josh Willingham to score from second base, giving the Minnesota Twins a 2-1 victory over New York.
Cervelli then tried for the double play but his throw sailed over the head of first baseman Mark Teixeira and Willingham raced home with the winning run.
The win snapped a seven-game home losing streak for the Twins against the Yankees and was Minnesota's fourth win against New York in 17 games at Target Field.
