Yanks blitz O's, win 11-4

The Yankees dispatched the Orioles with relative ease, taking the win by a score of 11-4. The New York offense was terrific, and Domingo German had all the help he could ever want en route to the win.

The party got started early, with Gary Sanchez blasting a three-run homer to left field in the top of the first inning after David Hess gave up consecutive singles to DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit. It looked like Sanchez didn’t get the best contact on the ball, but he hit it well enough to carry it over the fence and give the Yankees the lead.

Then in the third, after an Aaron Hicks walk, Gio Urshela hit a long fly ball that went in and out of the glove of left fielder Dwight Smith Jr., allowing Hicks to score from first base. Clint Frazier stepped up and hit the first of his two homers on the night over the center field wall to extend the lead. Frazier’s second long ball came in the fifth, this time scoring both Hicks and Gleyber Torres, who would add an RBI single of his own in the sixth. Also in the sixth, DJ LeMahieu scored on a fielder’s choice to round off the scoring. 

On the pitching side, Domingo German was solid if not spectacular. German went five innings, allowed three runs (two of them earned), walked one, and struck out five. The newly-signed David Hale took over proceedings from there, and pitched four innings, allowing one run. 

What’s Next? 
The Yankees and Orioles will square off again tomorrow, as CC Sabathia (2-1, 2.97 ERA) will face off against Dan Straily (1-3, 8.51 ERA). First pitch is scheduled for 7 PM EST.
