Baltimore – Luis Severino conceded one shot in six innings, and Jose Trevino became the first Yankees catcher with a home run this year when he hit a three-run drive in the fourth and lifted the Yankees high on the Baltimore Orioles, 6-2. Monday night.
Josh Donaldson and Anthony Rizzo added one-on-one solo homers to the Ninth Yankees, who won 19th in 22 games. New York (26-9) is one of the best 35-game starts in franchise history. Only the 1939 and 1928 teams, 28-7, were better at this point.
Anthony Santander twice defeated Baltimore’s only runs, but the Orioles only managed one shot in the game.
Kyle Brady (1-2) conceded four runs and eight shots in the fourth and third innings early in his fourth career. He kicked six with three feet.
The Yankees left the loaded bases first, then Baltimore lost the lead after Joey Gallo misplayed Cedric Mullins’s ball on the left field due to a three base error. After walking towards Trey Mancini, the Orioles were men on the first and third and no one came out, but Mancini doubled first when he caught second baseman Glaber Torres catching a diver on Santander’s soft liner.
They won the third match 1-0 with Giancarlo Stanton’s RBI double. At 2 fourth, Trevino’s flight to the right hit the pole.
As the Yankees continued to grow, Donaldson had three shots and a walk, thus extending his base series to 22 games. And Rizzo, Stanton and Aaron Jaji – who spent the night – became the first triumvirate of Yankee strikers to reach double-digit number of home races for the team’s 35th game.
It’s raining more
Monday’s match between the Cardinals of St. Louis and more was postponed due to rain and will take place as part of a one-on-one two-match match at City Field on Tuesday.
The first game will start at 15:10, the night cap will continue 30-40 minutes after the opening.
The teams will play a four-match series – their first meeting since getting into a bench in St. Louis last month.
