PREGAME NOTES:

The Yanks go for their first series win since July 25 - 27 against the Red Sox at Fenway.

The Yanks are just 3-6 on their 10-game road trip, which ends today.

Johnny Damon's 14-game hitting streak is his longest as a Yankee and is hitting .483 (29-for-60) over that stretch.

Robinson Cano is 1-for-12 in the month of August with RISP.

Darrell Rasner is a lifetime 1-1, 3.71 ERA, 1.29 WHIP in 3 starts against the Twins. He is a dreadful 2-5, 6.25 ERA, 1.61 WHIP in 8 games (7 starts) on the road this season.

Kevin Slowey is a lifetime 0-1, 9.00 ERA, 1.89 WHIP in 2 starts against the Yanks. He is 4-4, 3.71 ERA, 0.98 WHIP in 8 starts at the Metrodome this season.

X-Rays last night were negative and is expected to be back in the lineup on Friday.
