Luis Gil pitched for six innings without allowing a run, giving up just one hit, earning his seventh straight win. Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run homer, contributing to the New York Yankees’ 5-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night, marking the Yankees’ sixth consecutive win.

Aaron Judge hit a two-run double, and Gleyber Torres also homered early in the game, hitting a 349-foot shot that bounced off Max Kepler’s glove at the right-field fence.

After returning from a successful trip to California with a 7-2 record against three cities, the Yankees, leading the AL East, won their 17th game out of 21 overall. They now share the best record in the majors with Philadelphia, both teams standing at 43-19.

“We’ve got just one plan, and that’s to win everything,” said Torres.

The Yankees have dominated the Twins since 2002, boasting a record of 105-42 against them, the best record any team holds against an opponent in its own league during this period.

Last month, the Yankees outscored the Twins 14-1 in Minnesota, achieving consecutive shutouts in a three-game sweep.

The only run the Twins managed to score this time came from a homer by Royce Lewis, who returned after being absent for 58 games due to injury. Lewis walked twice and hit a homer in the seventh inning off Tommy Kahnle, ending the Twins’ 32-inning scoreless streak against Yankees pitching.

“I just had a great focus day. I tend to do that when the lights are a little bit brighter,” Lewis said after his first game at Yankee Stadium. “I like playing here.”

Kahnle, along with relievers Ian Hamilton and Luke Weaver, completed the game with only two hits allowed. Carlos Correa struck out all four times for Minnesota. Christian Vázquez’s double in the third inning was the only hit off Gil, who pitched a day after his 26th birthday.
