|Yankees send Twins to brink|
Lance Berkman homered and drove in a pair of runs Thursday, as the New York Yankees defeated the Minnesota Twins 5-2 in Game 2 and now lead the best-of-five ALDS series 2-0.
The Yankees won the game as -120 favorites, while the nine runs went as a PUSH against the posted over/under (9) set by sportsbooks.
Andy Pettitte scattered five hits and two runs over seven innings in the win, while Mariano Rivera closed out the ninth for his second save of the postseason.
Carl Pavano was tagged with the Twins loss, allowing 10 hits and four runs over six innings.
