Twins troll Yankees with music after strikeouts

The Minnesota Twins decided to troll the New York Yankees during the first game of a 3-game series between the teams.

The Twins smacked five home runs and turned a triple play as they won Monday’s game 8-6. But it wasn’t with the bats where they made all the noise.

Minnesota’s pitchers struck out eight Yankees in the game. After each strikeout, Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” song played in Target Field, rankling Yankees fans.

“New York, New York” is the same song that is played at Yankee Stadium after the team’s wins, so this is a clear troll job by Minnesota. The Red Sox did the same thing last year, though that was only after Aaron Judge started it first.

The 61-38 Twins lead the AL Central, while the 64-35 Yankees are in first in the AL East. Maybe the Bronx Bombers will be motivated for the remainder of the series after the Twins’ antics.
