Yanks Sweep O’s

BALTIMORE , MD (ANN) — Gary Sánchez and the New York Yankees spent much Sunday, the entire weekend really, admiring balls flying out of Camden Yards.

Sánchez hit three of the Yankees’ seven home runs, their most on the road in more than a half-century, and New York routed Baltimore 15-3 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.

Clint Frazier homered twice and had four hits, a day after hitting a go-ahead three-run drive for his first big league homer since July 2017. Austin Romine and Gleyber Torres also went deep for the Yankees, who got back above 500 at 5-4.

New York’s first 18 runs of the series scored on homers, and the Yankees hit 14 over the three games, a record in a three-game series at Baltimore. New York had not hit seven homers on the road since May 30, 1961, at Boston, when Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Moose Skowron hit two each, and Yogi Berra had one.

New York has won eight straight games at Camden Yards, its longest winning streak against the Orioles on the road.

Domingo German (2-0) retired his first 13 batters before Rio Ruiz walked in the fifth and did not allow a hit until Hanser Alberto singled with one out in the sixth. German allowed his first two batters to reach in the seventh, then was replaced. He gave up two runs, one hit and two walks, down from five walks in his first start, when he allowed one hit over five innings against Detroit.

Hess pitched 6 1/3 innings hitless innings at Toronto last Monday and was removed after 82 pitches. He allowed four runs and five hits in five innings.

Straily, signed Friday, allowed five runs and five hits over 1 1/3 innings. He was released by Miami late in spring training.

Alberto, an infielder, became the 10th Orioles position player to pitch. He allowed two runs, one hit and a pair of walks in the ninth.
