BALTIMORE — For the tenth time in a row, the Yankees beat the Orioles at Camden Yards. With the way Baltimore has been trending down recently, it’s no surprise, but still an impressive feat nonetheless.
The offense carried the squad yet again with a trio of home runs carrying the load in tonight’s game. Four starters finished with multiple knocks in a 12-hit onslaught against Baltimore pitching.
Last night’s hero, Gary Sanchez, set the tone with a first inning three-run home run against opposing starter David Hess.
In the third inning, after Gio Urshela drove in a run with a double, the struggling Clint Frazier stepped up with a two-run home run to extend the Yankee lead to 6-0.
It didn’t stop there, however, for the right fielder. Still facing Hess, and with two men on, Frazier drove a pitch deep to center field for his second home run of the night and for his 3rd, 4th, and 5th RBIs of the night.
Hopefully for Frazier and the Yankees, this is the beginning of another hot streak for the outfielder, who was red hot before injuring his ankle in Anaheim a couple of weeks ago.

Stevie Wilkerson took Domingo German deep for a three-run home run in the fifth for the O’s first runs but it was too little too late for Baltimore.
After German departed after five quality innings, the newly called-up David Hale pitched the final four innings for Aaron Boone and did a stellar job, giving up just a run on three hits allowed.
Notably, DJ LeMahieu finished with three hits, his 18th multi-hit effort of the season. Luke Voit also continued his recent hot hitting with two more base hits.
With those two guys setting the table at the top of the Yankee line-up, and Sanchez on a home run streak, this team will be tough to stop for any opposing pitcher.
CC Sabathia faces Dan Straily in the third game of this four-game series tomorrow, at 7:05 ET.
Current Yankees Record: 30-17
