In crushing fashion, the New York Yankees were able to take their three-game set with the Baltimore Orioles — their first series win at Camden Yards in four years.

The New York Yankees entered this week’s three-game set with the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards without a series win at the park since Sept. 2013. Thanks to a potent performance by the offense, they were able to snap the 11-series losing streak in Baltimore by a score of 9-1.

Although the offense put on a show, Sonny Gray led the way with yet another stellar performance. In 5.2 innings of work, the right-hander allowed just one run (unearned) on six hits while fanning five.

With that, the 27-year-old has allowed just 13 earned runs in 42.2 innings since being acquired by the Yankees on July 31, further justifying why general manager Brian Cashman obtained his services.

On the other side, the Bronx Bombers came to play.

Aaron Judge, Chase Headley, Starlin Castro and Todd Frazier each went yard and were responsible for driving in seven of nine runs scored on Thursday afternoon. Didi Gregorius also went 3-for-5 and got the party started with a RBI double in the top of the first to score Brett Gardner, who also recorded a multi-hit game.

The offense racked up nine total runs when it was all set and done fueled by 13 hits. That marked the 18th time the Yankees put up those numbers, good enough for the fourth-most in baseball according to Baseball Reference’s Play Index.

For Thursday’s purposes, the nine runs were enough to snap New York’s  second-longest series losing streak at a venue in franchise
history, according to Elias (lost 12 straight series at Oakland
from 1985-91), by a score of 9-1.

Head Strong: 

Since moving to first base, Chase Headley has gone 46-for-140 (.329) with 22 runs scored, eight home runs and 19 RBI’s. In addition, he has hit eight home runs in his last 35 games (since 7/29) after hitting just four over his first 93 games (through 7/28).

This Day In Yankees History:

On Sept. 7, 1985, outfielder Dave Winfield scored what proved to be the game-winning run by stealing home in the sixth inning of a 3-2 win vs. Oakland.

What’s Next: 

New York will travel to Texas to round out their season series with the Randers with a three-game weekend series in Arlington.

Getting the start for the Yankees will be Masahiro Tanaka, who has won each of his last three starts thanks to just five earned runs surrendered in 21 innings pitched. Over his last 12 starts, the 28-year-old is 6-3 with a 2.77 ERA including 82 strikeouts in 78 innings pitched.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. ET and will be aired on the YES Network or on the radio at WFAN 660/101.9 FM.
