Yankees, Twins continue wild-card positioning battle

NEW YORK -- The first game between the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees on Monday offered a glimpse how things might unfold in a potential playoff game.

The Yankees improved their standing in the wild-card race while the Twins lost some ground in the standings to their nearest pursuer.

The teams will get together again Tuesday night after opening the series with a tense game, won 2-1 by New York.
