Fact is: Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau are still crushing the ball and are even more menacing at their new home, Target Field.

Players to Watch:
Yankees: Mark Teixeira. He hit .500/.538/.833 last weekend against the Twins, facing the same three starters. Sounds to me like he’s ready to get back on a hot streak.
Twins: Denard Span. The Yankees did a good job keeping him off the bases last series, where he can really be a pest.
Although the Twins are at their new home, you can’t go against the overwhelming favorites in the recent history of this matchup. Maybe this time the Yankees will be able to complete the sweep.
