PREGAME NOTES:

The Yanks have lost 11 of 16 games since their 8-game win streak.

Melky Cabrera is hitting an NL pitcher-esque .215 / .244 / .281 in 130 ABs since June 27.

Mike Mussina is a lifetime 22-6, 3.06 ERA, 1.16 WHIP in 32 starts against the Twins. He is a phenomenal 14-4, 2.85 ERA, 1.18 WHIP over his last 20 starts this season.

Nick Blackburn is a lifetime 0-1, 6.00 ERA, 2.50 WHIP in 2 starts against the Yanks. He is 6-2, 2.54 ERA, 1.19 WHIP at the Metrodome this season.

ALL EYES ON THE FRANCHISE: Phil Hughes takes the mound tonight for what could be his final tuneup for Scranton before being promoted to the big club.

He is expected to throw roughly 80-90 pitches. You can follow the action here.
