Hot-hitting Yankees look for another win against Orioles

New York Yankees Aaron Judge hits a double during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles in New York Sunday

Aaron Hicks homered twice and rookie Jordan Montgomery pitched seven stellar innings to lead the New York Yankees over the Baltimore Orioles 8-2 on Friday night.

Sanchez, Starlin Castro, Didi Gregorius and Matt Holliday also homered in New York's biggest offensive show this season.

None of the most recent four victories have been close as the Yankees have outscored Baltimore and Boston by a combined 41-6 score.

ATLANTA - Steven Matz pitched seven impressive innings in his season debut, Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer and NY beat Atlanta to get the sweep.

Tillman actually retired the first two Yankees to face him, and almost had his first 1-2-3 first inning this season. Edwin Jackson allowed two runs on five hits in 1.2 innings. He got two quick outs to begin the first before Judge's homer began a six-run burst.

It was the sixth time Severino has pitched at least seven innings.

PITTSBURGH - Jordy Mercer hit a tying two-run triple in the eighth and John Jaso followed with a go-ahead double for Pittsburgh.

Tonight's pitching match-up will be a contest of youth with both pitchers being 24 years old.

He then fell behind Castro, 3-0, before Castro sent a rocket into the bleachers in left for a three-run homer.

Aaron Judge started Saturday night's Yankee parade of hits and runs with a signature clout.

The exit velocity on Judge's solo shot was 121.1 miles per hour, making it the hardest hit home run recorded since Statcast began tracking the statistic in 2015.

Orioles: RHP Darren O'Day was placed on the 10-day DL, retroactive to Wednesday, with a right shoulder strain. He was 0 for 3.

Unquestionably, Sabathia also has put together a fantastic start at almost 37, with a 7-2 record and a 3.66 ERA, while Michael Pineda (7-3, 3.39) finally seems to have found some consistency from start to start and Friday's victor, rookie lefty Jordan Montgomery (4-4, 3.55), has displayed the ability to regularly execute a game plan, just as the Yanks lauded him for since the spring. There is no timetable for his return.

"You can't ask for anymore what these guys are doing", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. He struck out six and walked two. Chapman is scheduled to pitch one inning on Tuesday with Class A Tampa and another at Double-A Trenton on Friday. He will work out with Trenton, although he is not expected to play in any games this week.

"The Yankees and Orioles have already met 3 times this season".

Montgomery scattered three hits and three walks on the afternoon.

-Since saying "I'm better than this" after a rough start in Kansas City, Montgomery is 2-1 with a 1.50 ERA in his last four starts. He has lost five straight starts during the worst stretch of his career, charged with 27 runs in 22 2/3 innings including 11 home runs.

The lone exception to the starters' success has been Masahiro Tanaka, whose next outing has been pushed back a day to Monday to avoid facing the Orioles.
