TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees had a big day.

Posada caught for the first time since right shoulder surgery last July, and Pettitte threw three scoreless innings in New York’s 5-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.

Posada played four innings, but didn’t have a baserunner attempt a steal against him. He had been limited to designated hitter duties before Sunday.

Twins starter Glen Perkins gave up three runs and five hits over three innings. The left-hander’s calf was bruised when it was struck by Hideki Matsui’s broken bat, but the play resulted in an inning-ending grounder in the third.
