Yankees continue dominance of Orioles

While the Yankees were enjoying their latest romp over the Orioles, Baltimore had little answers for another lopsided game in NY.

The previous mark was 146 scored by the 2002 Arizona Diamondbacks against the Colorado Rockies.

Just three games separate these two rivals in the National League Central.

The Yankees have scored 89 runs in eight games against the Orioles in the Bronx.

Before the team's 8-2 loss to the New York Yankees on Friday night - another example dissecting the difference between postseason contender and pretender - manager Buck Showalter wasn't going to give any indication that he believed the season was over. Even if the division escapes them, NY look to be in the driver's seat for a wildcard berth.

After his June promotion from Class AA Trenton, Andujar batted.317 with nine homers and 30 RBI in 58 games.

Those hits gave the Yankees a sixth straight home game with at least eight runs against the Orioles. It is their highest average in any season since the team moved the Baltimore according to STATS, which also said their highest average against the franchise was the.353 clip it posted in 1930.

Being able to put it together is how Severino has become a fringe Cy Young contender and the pitcher the Yankees would be most likely to want on the mound for the wild-card game, if they're there, or the opener of a playoff series. "I think it's exciting", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

"It's been tough. We were right in the thick of things a few weeks ago and yeah, it's been frustrating", Hellickson said. When he reached the dugout after the second drive of his fifth multihomer game, Judge was given the silent treatment by Didi Gregorius, who then burst into a wide smile (see full recap). By putting up big numbers in the first two games, the Yankees did not need to liberally use their bullpen by putting Chad Green into games in the fifth inning. He is 1-1 with a 3.43 ERA against the Orioles though he took a no-decision after pitching 4 2/3 innings at Baltimore on September 4.

The New York Yankees were without a steadying presence at first base for much of the season, starting a mix of aging veterans and minor league call-ups at the position.

The Yankees have won five of their last six games.are 1-0 to begin their seven-game homestand.are 14G over.500 for the first time since the close of play on 6/13 (38-24).with a win tomorrow, will match their 2017 high-watermark (15G at close of play on 6/12, 38-23).are 9-3 since 9/2, 19-11 since 8/14, and 32-21 since 7/20.are 35-25 (.583) since the All-Star break. The left-hander's last outing was Sunday's 16-7 win at Texas when he allowed three runs and three hits in 3 1/3 innings before being replaced by Green.

Pitching for Baltimore will be Jeremy Hellickson, while NY turns to Jordan Montgomery. He is 2-4 with a 6.54 ERA since joining the Orioles in a trade with the Philadelphia Phillies. As for Jimenez, he's been pretty sketchy this year and allowed three runs against the Blue Jays his last time out.

Gray is 3-5 with a 2.66 ERA in eight starts with the Yankees and has struggled to get run support.
