Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Jacoby Ellsbury belted a three-run homer and finished with four RBI, as the New York Yankees survived after building a sizeable lead to beat the Minnesota Twins 9-7 at Target Field.

The Yankees led 9-0 after the top of the fourth, but the Twins mounted a comeback and had the winning run at the plate in the bottom of the ninth.

New York closer David Robertson gave up three hits, the last a two-out single by Oswaldo Arcia that scored Eduardo Nunez to trim the deficit to two. Robertson, however, got Kurt Suzuki to hit into a fielder's choice for the final out, securing his 21st save of the season.
