Yankees Continue To Pulverize Orioles

Jonathan Grant | August 13th, 2019

The New York Yankees have rampaged this season, even with a plethora of injuries to account for throughout the campaign. As capably as they have gone about things, the Baltimore Orioles have gone about them as poorly. That, unsurprisingly, continued on Monday as the Yankees swept a doubleheader as you would expect them to do so. In the afternoon affair, the Yankees hit four home runs in an 8-5 victory. Didi Gregorious, Gleyber Torres, Gio Urshela, and Cameron Maybin all went yard as they once again beat the helpless Orioles.

In the nightcap, they again plated plenty of runs, taking their 15th consecutive win over their AL East foes by a score of 11-8. Torres excelled yet again, hammering two more home runs, one in the fifth and one in the sixth, to help them gain another win. That accounted for 6 RBIs, paving their way to the eventual ‘W.’ On top of that, it was his 13th of the season against the beleaguered O’s. He trails Lou Gehrig by one now, and you have to like his chances to surpass the record. Half of his 26 homers have came against the same opponents. They are now even further ahead of Tampa Bay and look all but assured of winning the division barring a major collapse.
