The New York Yankees defeated the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 8-5, bludgeoning them with the home run ball once again.

I don’t know about any other fans, but I will never get tired of the New York Yankees hitting home runs against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Yankees continued to dance on Baltimore’s grave, hitting four long balls on their way to the 8-5 victory.

Didi Gregorius and Gleyber Torres both went yard in the first inning to give the Bombers an early lead.

Torres’ shot marks his 11th homer against the Orioles this season.

Of course, the Yankees offense didn’t stop there. Cameron Maybin added a solo shot of his own in the sixth.

However, the big shot of the game belongs to Gio Urshela. He unleashed a monster 461-foot shot on his way to yet another multi-hit day.

On the other side of the ball, James Paxton continued to pitch well. He tossed six innings allowing three earned runs, picking up yet another quality start. He continued his recent uptick in knucklecurve usage and it’s proving to be an effective pitch for him.

Savage of the Game — Gio Urshela

In a season where Urshela has emerged as a miracle revelation. Even so, it’s fair to say he’s on the hottest streak of his life. He’s hit seven home runs in his last seven games and is racking up multi-hit games like nobody’s business.

Consequentially, he’s raised his season slash line to .323/.368/.572 for an OPS of .940. Monday’s 3-for-4 performance is starting to look like business as usual for the Savage of the Game.

Lifetime ballplayer and Yankee fan. Strongly believe that the eye-test and advanced stats can be used together instead of against each other.
