You have heard of the Boston Massacre. What do you call this, the Baltimore Blitz? For the Yanks swept Baltimore this weekend 38-8 in three games, and during their five game winning streak, have scored 55 runs (11 per game).
Today, four more HR, and two were absolute bombs.
Once again, the Yanks jumped out early and put the game away in the very first inning. With the 14-3 blowout, they go to 37-23 on the season.
In the first, singles by Gardner and Judge. WP . A 2-run single by Castro. A 3-run 450 ft. HR by Sanchez (10). That 450 foot HR would look like nothing by the end of the game.
The Orioles mounted a comeback, getting 3 in the third. Chad Green started, but did not last long due to pitch count. 5-3.
In the fourth, Hicks walked, Judge doubled and Holliday singled in two. 7-3.
To the sixth. Judge homered, and #20 for Judge was something to behold. Over the LF bleachers and a fan reached over the walkway for it. 495 feet!
After that, Holliday reached on an error and then Castro HR’d (12) to make it 10-3.
In the seventh, with one out, Torreyes and Gardner walked. Hicks doubled in two, and Judge hit his second HR of the game (21) to make it 14-3.
Domingo German made his MLB debut (Tommy Layne was DFA’d) and did a great job in this 14-3 win.
As far as pitching, a job pieced together by Girardi.
