Yankees power past Orioles

It wasn't just the offense that dominated for New York Saturday as Luis Severino (5-2) gave the Bombers seven strong innings, only allowing two hits and a single run while lowering his earned run average to 2.75. He added a scorching 116-mph two-run double in the fifth inning, making him the only player in the Statcast Era with multiple hits of 116 miles per hour or more in the same game. The Yankees have scored 25 runs in their last three wins and have scored 34 runs in three home wins over the Orioles.

Expectations were low for the New York Yankees heading into the 2017 season.

His MLB-leading 22nd homer of the season, a tiebreaking two-run shot to right-center in the eighth inning, led the Yankees to their sixth straight victory, 5-3, over the Angels in front of 36,245 on Monday night.

The Yankees started reliever Chad Green on Sunday, and he lasted only two innings, though it made little difference in a 14-3 rout of the Orioles.

After wowing his teammates, Judge then hit another in the seventh against Jimmy Yacobonis, who was making his major league debut.

Judge is hitting.344 with 21 homers, a.450 on-base and.718 slugging average (1.168 OPS).

CLEVELAND - Erik Gonzalez had two hits and an RBI, and Carlos Carrasco pitched into the sixth inning as Cleveland beat Chicago at Progressive Field. "I'm 11 games in, and so far I haven't been doing too badly". Shortstop Didi Gregorius lifted up diminutive infielder Ronald Torreyes for a high-five with Judge.

Aaron Hicks now consistently bats second for the Yankees, providing steady production at the top of the lineup. "They got a nice ballclub over there, so we're going to have to really fight for it". "I'm trying not to overthrow or aim it, just trusting the grip and trusting that the spin will make it go the way I want it".

"I've seen him hit homers, but that one today is incredible", Sanchez said through an interpreter.

Judge has looked like a completely different player from the overmatched rookie who struggled in 27 games after being called up briefly past year. The outfielder enhanced his credentials by going 4 for 4 with a walk, scoring four times and driving in three (see full recap). They are 37-23 and will end the day with no smaller than a 3.0-game lead on Boston in the AL East. He was the main topic of conversation during a recent FOX telecast, and he is the leading vote-getter in the 2017 All-Star Game ballot set for Miami in a few weeks.

Before we get to Mr. Judge, let's heap some praise on El Gary Sanchez.

The Yankees scored at least eight runs for the fifth straight game, matching the team's best streak since 1939. NY has won three straight, outscoring rivals Boston and Baltimore 25-3 over the past three nights.

It means that the New York Yankees are here, and here to stay. Stefon Crichton, who, in fairness, has no business being summoned in the second inning, gave up three runs in two innings pitched. Matt Holliday walks. Starlin Castro singles to center field.

In Sunday's 14-3 rout, the Yankees "statistically" may not have topped their offensive numbers from Saturday, but that didn't keep them from obliterating the record books.

Yankees seventh. Chris Carter strikes out swinging. He gave up two hits, walked a batter and struck out one without allowing a run in the final 2 2/3 innings. Judge's parents made the trip down from central California to watch their son's latest feat in the opener of the Yankees' seven-game Golden State road trip. Manager Buck Showalter said Machado took swings via tee and toss and fielded ground balls before the game. The Yankees selected RHP Clarke Schmidt in the first round of Monday's draft, the 16th player picked overall. Chapman is scheduled to pitch one inning on Tuesday with Class A Tampa and another at Double-A Trenton on Friday. Four of the five Orioles pitchers on the night failed the Matusz Test - that is, they started the game with an already-high ERA and ended with an even higher ERA.
