The Yankees beat the Twins, 4-1, in a rain-shortened affair at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) After coughing up four runs in his last start, Domingo German coasted to a one-run performance across 6 2/3 innings. German threw 108 pitches on his way to scattering four hits and three walks, while striking out seven batters. German has been fantastic filling in for Luis Severino, to the point that it's hard to suggest the club would have received better from its injured ace.

2) Mike Tauchman is by no means lighting the world on fire with his bat, but he has had some success at Yankee Stadium where seven of his eight hits have gone for extra bases, including today's two-run home run.

After returning Saturday and playing third base, Miguel Andújar will take over DH duties, while Sanchez moves behind the plate. ... Gleyber Torres extended his hit streak to 10 games Saurday. He's batting .333/.349/.500 with five extra-base hits and seven RBI during that stretch.

Mets top Twins at Citi 00:00:45
New York Mets were dealt 6 consecutive walks in an inning and took advantage to break this game open against the Twins.

The Twins basically handed the Mets this one, as a walk-happy Minnesota pitching staff led New York to a 9-6 win at Citi Field on Wednesday night. >> Box score

Six things to know about Wednesday's game...

1) Noah Syndergaard had a decent outing for the Mets in this one. He allowed four runs on five hits over seven innings of work with seven strikeouts and no walks. Most of Syndergaard's runs allowed came in the eighth, as Mickey Callaway sent him back out for the inning. He allowed an RBI double and then an RBI triple which forced him out of the game. Despite those mistakes, his fastball was working around 98-99 all night long with top outs at 100.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is readying his team for Tuesday's wild-card game against Ervin Santana and the Minnesota Twins.

Although the Yankees are mathematically in contention for the AL East title, they would need to sweep the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend and also need the Houston Astros to sweep the Boston Red Sox. That said, Girardi has begun to look ahead to the wild card, which Yankee Stadium would host.

The Twins, losers of 103 games last season, have rebounded in 2017 to win 83 games so far and would likely start the 34-year-old Santana, who is 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA this season and threw five scoreless innings against the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians on Thursday.

While the New York Yankees play the Colorado Rockies four times and the Minnesota Twins seven times over the next two weeks, outfielder Carlos Beltran said the Yankees aren't looking past their opponents.

"They're big league ball clubs. It doesn't matter what the record says, you have to go out there, approach the game the right way, try to make sure you jump ahead and do the right things," Beltran said, according to the New York Post's Zach Braziller. "Sometimes when you go to places where teams are not playing well, sometimes you put your guard down and say, 'We should go out there and win these games.'"

The Yankees are coming off a grueling part of their schedule that included 40 games in 41 days that included six games against the Baltimore Orioles, six games against the Toronto Blue Jays and a West Coast road trip against the Arizona Diamondbacks and Oakland A's.

"He looks great in batting practice," manager Terry Collins said.

Uribe, who's hitting .219 with six home runs and 20 RBIs since joining the Mets in July, hasn't played since Sept. 25 after suffering cartilage damage in his chest stemming from a diving play on Sept. 20.
