The New York Yankees rode the home run to a convincing victory over the Baltimore Orioles for their third-straight win.

The New York Yankees made a statement on Sunday in Baltimore. A once-dormant offense erupted for 15 runs and seven home runs. Gary Sanchez led the way with three home runs and six RBI, but he was far from the only Yankee who had a monster day.

For starters, Domingo German went 5.1 innings without allowing a hit and finished the game with an impressive line. He went six innings, allowing two runs on just two hits and two walks. The righty hurler now owns an ERA of 1.64 through his first two starts. Manager Aaron Boone could not have asked for a better starter from the previously inconsistent German.

While starting pitching gave the Yankees a chance to win, the offense ensured there was no way they squandered that chance. Sanchez led the way, but Clint Frazier checked in with his first multi-home run game of the season. He went 4-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI.

Furthermore, Gleyber Torres socked a home run of his own while reaching base safely three times and scoring three runs. Just for good measure, Austin Romine hit a ninth-inning home run to give the Yanks seven bombs on the day.

Camden Yards was exactly what the Yankees needed to wake up the offense. After a concerning 2-4 start to the 2019 season, this three-game sweep pushes the Yankees to 5-4 heading to Houston.

With all the injuries, the Bronx Bombers needed a shot of life in the worst possible way. Despite starting the year in Triple-A, Frazier is taking advantage of his opportunity. He was the hero on Saturday with his clutch three-run home run and he stayed hot on Sunday.

Without Giancarlo Stanton and Didi Gregorius, the team is missing a ton of its run production. Thus far, Frazier is stepping into that role and driving in runs at almost every opportunity.

Look for Boone to stick with Frazier’s quick bat when the Yankees take on the Houston Astros on Monday. Masahiro Tanaka will face off against Justin Verlander in a battle between these World Series contenders.
