Yankees Put Up Football-like Numbers in 13-Run Victory

As center fielder Curtis Granderson took a casual approach to the ball, Swanson never let up as he rounded first base and slid head-first into second.

Judge hit his major league-leading 19th home run and NY connected five times in all, battering Chris Tillman and the Baltimore Orioles 16-3 on Saturday night for their fourth straight win.

"Yeah, didn't start off too well, with two K's, but that's baseball", Judge said with a grin.

"If I know it's going over the fence, I am going to start jogging and just get around the bases and get back in the dugout", he said.

Moore hit a two-run homer off Tyler Glasnow (2-6) in the second and took reliever Dovydas Neverauskas deep over the left field wall in the seventh. The Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton holds the all-time record at 504 feet. "That's the word - incredible".

And on a day when Joe Girardi was forced to use five pitchers because the team made a decision to push the struggling Masahiro Tanaka's start to Monday in Anaheim, it hardly mattered who was on the mound for the Yankees. "His power's special. This is not something you see every day". The team's 14-3 loss to New York June 11 before a sellout crowd of 46,348 was another sobering reminder that the season may already be slipping away.

The New York Yankees are expected to call up pitching prospect Domingo German from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre to start Sunday at Yankee Stadium versus the Baltimore Orioles according to NJ.com's Brendan Kuty. "He hits it so hard - I'd like to know what it feels like". "Me and everybody else". He has a league-leading 21 home runs with 47 RBI, putting him in the lead for the Triple Crown. (Now he's at.347, but he trails the Mariners' Nelson Cruz in RBIs, 50-49.) Judge entered the night ranked second in the big leagues in OBP (.450), slugging (.718) and OPS (1.168).

"He's had an unbelievable first 2 1/2 months of the season", Girardi said.

Angels bats have been hot lately with them scoring 32 runs over their last wins, but those damn Yankees have been hotter, scoring 55 runs over their current 5 game winning streak. You got Matt Holliday behind me and then Castro. It would be in the top 15 of all time for players under 26, behind only Hall of Famers (Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Frank Thomas, Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Mantle, Chuck Klein and Rogers Hornsby) and great hitters who could land there someday (Todd Helton, Lance Berkman and Bryce Harper). NY swept the three-game series, and outscored the Orioles and Boston 55-9 during this five-game run.

Cardinals 6, Phillies 5: Dexter Fowler hit a three-run homer for St. Louis, and Adam Wainwright tossed five solid innings in the win.

The Yankees did not keep up their five-game consecutive streak of eight or more runs a game. Whether his pitiful performance this season is injury-related or not, Tillman now owns a horrendous 8.01 ERA after allowing three home runs and nine earned runs in 1.1 innings pitched against the New York Yankees Saturday in front of a national TV audience.

Corey Seager capped Los Angeles' six-run eighth inning with his first career grand slam, helping the Dodgers finish off the sweep.

Gausman gave up eight hits, seven runs and walked six in 3 1/3 innings. "I wasn't sure what was going to happen, but he got a pitch and he crushed it".

Amazingly, one pitcher did not allow any runs. It was an opposite field shot.

MACHADO IN CHICAGO? Manny Machado missed his fourth straight game with a strained left wrist, but Showalter indicated that it's possible the third baseman will return when the Orioles move to play the Chicago White Sox June 12.

Orioles: Machado hit off a tee, made some throws and fielded some grounders before the game.
