For the first time since they were 4-2, the Yanks are two games above .500 this season after they shutout the Orioles 5-0 Wednesday night.
The Yanks jumped on the board right away. Brett Gardner tripled leading off the bottom of the first and scored on a SF by Carlos Beltran.
Mark Teixeira’s 8th HR of the year, #402 of his career, made it 2-0 Yanks in the fourth.
Teix walked with the bases loaded in the sixth to make it 3-0.
In the seventh, Ronald Torreyes, playing 3rd because Chase Headley was a last minute scratch to due personal issues (hope all is OK), tripled, and scored on a Gardner SF.
Beltran finished the scoring in the eighth, when he hit his 20th HR of the season. Career HR #412 tied Alfonso Soriano on the all-time list.
