Yankees pound Twins, Advance to ALCS

Well, that was easy.

The Yankees pounded on the Minnesota Twins on Saturday to win Game 3 of the ALDS and swept the Twins for the second year in a row.  The story of the game was Phil Hughes and his dominating fastball that the Twins hitters couldn’t touch.

After all the talk about the Yankees rotation and the unknown of what would happen after C.C. Sabathia, Andy Pettitte and Phil Hughes both showed they’re up for the task.

Pettitte did what he always has and that’s win a playoff game.  He bent once again, and didn’t break.  As for Hughes, there were more questions surrounding his start because it was his first post season star of his career.  Hughes answered all the questions by out pitching both Pettitte, and Sabathia.

Now the questions will be can the Yankees rotation do it again?  Sabathia gave up three earned runs and wasn’t sharp after seven days rest but Sabathia should pitch better than his first start of the playoffs and Pettitte will pitch like he always does.  If Hughes can pitch like he did Saturday then the Yankees will have the advantage over the Rays or Rangers, depending on who wins that series.
