Yankees Blow Past Twins 8-0

Bobby Abreu had three hits for the Yankees.

The Twins managed just five hits and Torii Hunter was ejected by plate umpire Ron Kulpa in the eighth inning. Hunter had been called out on strikes the previous inning and got tossed while he was in the dugout. He charged at Kulpa and screamed in the umpire's face.

Minnesota was 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position -- a night after going oh-for-7 with runners in position to score.

Carlos Silva took the loss, giving up six runs in five-and-a-third innings
