Game Day

Gardy’s offense keys Yankees win over O’s

BALTIMORE — After the first game of their doubleheader earlier in the day, the New York Yankees bounced back to easily defeat the Baltimore Orioles in the nightcap, 10-2, at Camden Yards.

Brett Gardner‘s four hits keyed a 17-hit Yankee attack that saw every person in the starting lineup get a hit and five of the nine have a multi-hit game.

In a spot start, Luis Cessa also did more than enough to give his team a chance to win. Going six strong innings, the Mexican right-hander allowed just three hits in a four strikeout shutout performance versus Baltimore.

Giovany Gallegos, the 26th man in this doubleheader, pitched the final three innings for New York.

Didi Gregorius opened the scoring in the first with an RBI double, before Gardner’s two-run shot in the third. Greg Bird a single in the fifth to make it 4-0.

The Yankees then added four more runs in the eighth inning, highlighted by a two-run home run by Austin Romine, that scored Clint Frazier.

Romine and Aaron Judge then added RBI-hits in the ninth to give Gallegos a lead he could not squander.

Masahiro Tanaka makes his return to the mound tomorrow, and will face Andrew Cashner.

Current Yankees Record: 59-30
