Down 9-0 in the fourth inning, the Twins began rallying and eventually and brought the potential winning run to the plate with two outs in the ninth. Kurt Suzuki grounded out with runners at the corners to end it.
Before the game, the Yankees traded lefty Vidal Nuno to Arizona for right-handed starter Brandon McCarthy. New York also cut outfielder Alfonso Soriano.
Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki each had three hits for the Yankees, who have won 14 of 18 overall at Target Field.
Almirola Wins Rain-Shortened Daytona Race
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Aric Almirola has won the rain-delayed and rain-shortened NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway, putting Richard Petty's famed No. 43 in Victory Lane for the first time since 1999.
Almirola's unexpected win came on the same weekend Petty celebrated the 30th anniversary of his 200th win.
The Coke Zero 400 was originally scheduled to go off Saturday night, but steady rain forced it to be postponed a day. When it did finally get started Sunday, it was interrupted several more times.
There were three red flags, two of them because of huge accidents that took out most of the 43-car field and several top contenders. Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Jamie McMurray, Carl Edwards, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle and Kyle Busch were among those knocked out of contention.
INDYCARS AT POCONO: In Long Pond, Pa., Juan Pablo Montoya won the IndyCar race at Pocono Raceway, the highlight of a triumphant return to open-wheel racing after seven years in NASCAR.
Helio Castroneves was second to make it a 1-2 finish Sunday for team owner Roger Penske. Montoya won for the first time in the CART/IndyCar Series since 2000 and had his first major victory since he won a road course race at Watkins Glen in NASCAR in 2010.
Montoya, who won from the pole, took the lead for good when Tony Kanaan was forced to pit for fuel with four laps left.
Angel Cabrera Wins Greenbrier by 2 Shots
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his first non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second straight 6-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill.
Cabrera, the Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with a pair of late bogeys. He finished at 16-under 264.
McNeill shot a season-best 61 for his fourth top-10 of the season and first since mid-March.
Webb Simpson had a 63 to finish third at 10 under.
Third-round leader Billy Hurley III bogeyed four of the first six holes to fall out of contention. He shot a 73 and finished in a seven-way tie for fourth at 9 under.
Nibali Wins Tour de France 2nd Stage
SHEFFIELD, England -- Italy's Vincenzo Nibali outfoxed other Tour de France contenders to win the second stage Sunday, wresting the overall race leader's yellow jersey.
The Astana team leader finished first in the 201-kilometer (125-mile) ride over nine rolling hills and through the heath of Yorkshire, England. Peter Sagan of Slovakia was second, and Belgium's Greg van Avermaet was third -- each two seconds behind.
Over the last six kilometers, several of the pre-race favorites to win the three-week race played a cat-and-mouse game, quickly exchanging leadership of the breakaway bunch. But Nibali, a 29-year-old who won the Italian Giro last year, timed an attack perfectly -- bursting ahead with less than two kilometers to go, and holding off surging chasers.
Massive crowds lined the route from York to Sheffield. One of the British stars in the race, Mark Cavendish, dropped out before Stage 2 amid pain from a separated right shoulder sustained in a crash Saturday.
