Hicks hits 2 HRs, Montgomery pitches Yankees past O's 8-2”

Aaron Hicks homered twice and rookie Jordan Montgomery pitched seven stellar innings to lead the New York Yankees over the Baltimore Orioles 8-2 on Friday night. Sanchez, Judge, Holliday, Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorius each homered.

The Yankees passed an early season test against Boston, taking two of three from the second place Red Sox to remain in first in the AL East.

Tanaka gave up seven runs over 5 2/3 innings in his last start against the Orioles on May 31.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Orioles are +120 money line underdogs versus the Yankees, who have odds of -143 to win tonight at home. In a 4-1 win on July 21, he allowed one run and four hits in seven innings but that was a lineup without Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge.

Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer but the Orioles mustered five hits and none after the fifth inning.

"I really didn't have to search for anything that first inning".

NY scored three unearned runs in the seventh following a throwing error by reliever Edwin Jackson. RHP Stefan Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk.

And the crowd chanted "M-V-P" during Judge's at-bats, watching him reach base in his first four plate appearances, including a scorching two-run double in the fifth measured at 116 miles per hour off the bat.

White House tries to regroup, but Trump isn't helping
If he doesn't want media coverage of tweets, then he needs to find a way to communicate more discreetly to the faithful. That is and ought to be impossible, particularly now that the man is in office.

The 23-year-old righty - yes, don't forget that he's still the third-youngest AL pitcher to start a game this year - clearly has reestablished both his changeup and his swagger on the mound, helped along by an average fastball of better than 97 miles per hour, tops in the majors among starters, according to FanGraphs. It was the Yankees staff's longest such streak in the Expansion Era (since 1961) and the longest stretch of hitless at-bats with runners in scoring position in the majors since the Montreal Expos also held opponents hitless 45 times in 1982.

Chris Davis, who moved from first base to third base, hit his 14th home run in the seventh. He was 0 for 3. There is no timetable for his return.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi added: "He continues to shine and he's been really helpful". "He got ahead, expanded with his curveball with two strikes, and got him to chase".

Chapman has been on the disabled list since May 13 with rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder. Ellsbury has been riding an exercise bike, running on a treadmill and playing catch.

In his 66.0 innings and 3-4 record this year, Gausman has a 5.86 ERA with 47 Ks and 28 BBs.

He turned on an 0-1 changeup, clearing the Orioles bullpen beyond the left-field fence and sending it deep into the stands.

Judge reached base four times in the first five innings, doubled in two runs in the fifth off Edwin Jackson.

It was announced yesterday the struggling Masahiro Tanaka's start, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, was pushed back to Monday against the Angels in Anaheim.
