Gregorius, Judge propel Yankees to sweep of Twins

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- The personal milestones were nice, and sweeping the Minnesota Twins to widen their lead in the American League wild-card race also was enjoyable for the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

What weighed on their minds was the controversial issue of protective netting in seats closest to the field.

While Didi Gregorius set a team record for home runs by a shortstop with a three-run shot and Aaron Judge hit his AL-leading 45th homer in a 11-3 win over Minnesota, a little girl was struck in the face by a foul ball in the fifth inning.
