Yankees power past Orioles

Facing Luis Severino tonight is probably not going to be the cure to that problem.

Gary Sanchez kept the rally going with a two-run single to left and the Yankees led 3-0.

RANGERS 5, NATIONALS 2: Andrew Cashner quieted the National League's top-hitting lineup, Jonathan Lucroy and Rougned Odor homered, and Texas won at Washington.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brian Dozier and Kennys Vargas hit home runs, leading Jose Berrios and Minnesota over San Francisco.

The 28-year-old Tanaka has lost a career-worst five straight outings and is 5-6 with a 6.55 ERA in 12 starts this season.

Sanchez on exit velocity after Judge set a new record with 121.1 miles per hour: "That home run I hit, I hit pretty good and I think it was like (115.1.) I don't think I can go beyond that".

Holliday singled, Castro doubled and Sanchez lined a two-run single.

Tillman. He was completely overmatched, allowing nine runs while getting just four outs.

He then fell behind Castro, 3-0, before Castro sent a rocket into the bleachers in left for a three-run homer. That's because Aaron Hicks entered Saturday night's game with a.318/.426/.584 slash line, 10 homers and 34 RBIs.

He walked Mark Trumbo to start the fifth but didn't give up a hit until Trey Mancini grounded a ball through the right side of the infield to a spot vacated by the shift two batters later. Each hit a homer, and the trio combined went 8-for-11 with nine RBI, eight runs and two walks.

Ellsbury now owns a slash line of.281/.349/.422 with four home runs and 14 RBI over 153 plate appearances this season.

Holliday finished 3-for-4 with a walk, a homer, three runs scored, and three runs batted in.

If Bundy and Gausman play like they have in the past, there's no reason the Orioles can't take two out of three games against the Yankees this weekend.

After walking slugger Aaron Judge, Jackson allowed an RBI double to Matt Holliday off the left-center-field wall that gave the Yankees a 6-2 cushion.

Last season through 58 games, the New York Yankees hit 60 homers, scored 223 runs and were batting.239. The Orioles have already faced him twice, pounding him for seven runs the last time on May 31.

The Yankees go for the series sweep tomorrow, sending out Chad Green to make the start.

It was announced yesterday the struggling Masahiro Tanaka's start, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, was pushed back to Monday against the Angels in Anaheim.

"You can't ask for anymore what these guys are doing", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

The Orioles are still in the second wild card spot, at least for the moment, though two teams are within a game of them and it's fair to say the O's are heading in the wrong direction.

Dylan Bundy, who has been Baltimore's best pitcher this season, will take the mound in the first game of the series.
