NEW YORK (AP) â€” Derek Jeter passed Rogers Hornsby for 33rd place on baseball's all-time list with two hits, and the New York Yankees' relievers held off the Minnesota Twins in their first game since blowing a big lead to win 4-3 on Thursday.
A.J. Burnett (2-0) improved to 7-0 in 12 April starts for the Yankees, allowing two runs on five hits in six innings. With the Yankees up 4-3, Rafael Soriano pitched a scoreless eighth two days after he surrendered a 4-0 lead in a game Minnesota won in extra innings.
The Twins lost heralded Japanese import Tsuyoshi Nishioka to an apparent left leg injury when Nick Swisher slid into him at second base while breaking up a double play.
