      Yankees stay in first, rout Twins in Minnesota

      MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Andy Pettitte turned in another ageless performance with six scoreless innings and the New York Yankees hit four home runs Monday night to beat Minnesota 6-3 and extend their AL East lead.

      The Yankees took a 1 1/2-game edge over Baltimore, which split a doubleheader with Toronto. This is the first time Sept. 2 their margin has been more than one game.

      After playing three tense, one-run games against Oakland over the weekend, including their startling comeback for a 14-inning win on Saturday, the Yankees enjoyed an easy one for a change. This was New York's 10th victory in 12 games.
