Judge, Yankees blast Orioles, 16-3

Judge hit two more home runs, including a drive almost 500 feet that cleared the distant bleachers at Yankee Stadium and sent NY romping past Baltimore 14-3 Sunday for its fifth straight win.

The judge wasn't the only Yankee handing out souvenirs Saturday, as Starlin Castro, Gary Sanchez, Didi Gregorius and Matt Holliday would each all homer in the 13 run victory.

After dropping a one-run game to the Red Sox on Tuesday, the Yankees' lead in the AL East fell to one game, with Boston and Baltimore seemingly closing in fast.

Orioles righthander Kevin Gausman became the latest victim of the Bombers' bats, allowing seven earned runs on eight hits over 3.1 innings.

After three straight one-out walks, Holland retired Ben Zobrist on a short flyball and struck out a swinging Jason Heyward for his major league-best 23rd save.

Jonathan Schoop hit an early two-run homer for third-place Baltimore, which dropped 4 1/2 games behind the Yankees. The 24-year-old German has not appeared in a major league game.

The judge highlighted his first career four-hit game and third career multi-homer game when he sent a 1-1 slider from Logan Verrett well over the left-center-field fence.

NY has some solid hitters this year as well.

But after hitting his second home run of the afternoon the next inning, he got the cold shoulders from his teammates. Castillo has been on the 10-day DL since May 31 with a testicular injury.

Chris Rusin (3-0) won in relief.

With that said, Ellsbury doesn't yet have a timetable to return, so this may not be an issue for a while.

With manager Joe Girardi opting to push struggling Masahiro Tanaka back to Monday, the Yankees will dip into their bullpen and give Green his first start of the season.

Chapman has been on the disabled list since May 13 with rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder. Andrew Miller pitched two scoreless innings, striking out four, and closer Cody Allen, in a non-save situation, pitched the ninth.

Bird has played in nine rehab games coming into Sunday, the previous three with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Orioles, playing without injured All-Star third baseman Manny Machado (strained left wrist) for the fourth straight game, chased NY starter Chad Green in the third with back-to-back doubles that made it 5-1.

Those were Girardi's comments after Saturday's 16-3 route, which featured a season-high 18 hits and five homers, which matched a season high. "I wanted to show him inside In the first inning so he'd think about it the whole game, and I just went hard away and went after him with curveballs until I got him to swing at one".
