A sweep of the weekend series against NY will have the Orioles only half a game behind the Yankees and in sole possession of second place in the division if the Red Sox lose a game this weekend.
Judge added yet another home run in the seventh inning, helping the Yankees crush the Baltimore Orioles during a 14-3 win.
“So far”, Montgomery said when asked if this was the best start of his young career.
The Yankees sent 10 men to the plate in the bottom half of the first inning, a half-inning that would see them tally six runs on six hits.
Bird went 2-for-5 on Saturday and entering Sunday was 3-for-13 with two walks at that level.
The rookie’s big game comes just one day after he blasted the hardest-hit home run of the Statcast era, a 121.1 miles per hour shot off Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman. Not surprisingly, that is the longest home run recorded this season. Severino didn’t pitch well in his first meeting against the Orioles this year, allowing 4 earned runs in five innings. Sanchez followed with his mammoth shot, which slammed into the signs above the visitor’s bullpen. Washington made three errors, including two by shortstop Trea Turner.
Gausman allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision versus the Pirates.
Gausman has a 5.86 ERA and among the reasons is struggles with two outs.
The Orioles have not won on the road since a 13-11 victory in Detroit in 13 innings on May 16, and are 10-20 on the road.
The Yankees, like many teams, when they have a choice will default to pitching as a primary target when it comes to landing future major league talent. The over is 8-3 in New York’s last 11 Sunday games, and NY is 21-8 in their last 29 games versus a team with a winning record.
The Yankees on the bench had their mouths wide open in amazement, pointing to where the ball traveled. Miguel Cabrera has never had a first half so good.

Chris Davis and Joey Rickard homered for the Orioles.
Every starter had a hit for Miami, which is 11-4 in its past 15 games.
Pittsburgh lost its fourth straight to drop to a season-low nine games under.500. Souza, who entered in a 1-for-24 slide, had three hits and came within a double of hitting for the cycle. Check out Didi Gregorius’ reaction to the ridiculously long home run. Crichton would silence the Yankee bats for the next two innings before allowing them to stretch their lead to 12 following a Matt Holiday home run.
After a walk to Chase Headley and a wild pitch, Carter capped the inning with a single to left.
“I really didn’t have to search for anything that first inning”. He debuted last season and hit four homers in 27 games.
Chris Tillman’s worst night as a major league pitcher ended as he watched the New York Yankees’ Starlin Castro trot around the bases. That one looked like it was hit by a mere mortal, however. Holliday and Judge each had three of New York’s 18 hits and scored three times. Trevor Rosenthal worked around a leadoff single in the eighth to maintain the lead.
