BALTIMORE – Gleyber Torres continued to harass Baltimore pitching with his third multihomer performance of the young season, and Gary Sanchez belted a go-ahead homer into the ninth inning that the yankees rallied from five rounds, stunning the Orioles with a 10- 7 victory on Monday night at Camden Yards.
Torres cracked his ninth and 10th homers, clearing the wall with a solo shot in the second entrance off Andrew Cashner and going deep again into the eighth against Mychal Givens. Aaron Hicks lifted a victim flying off Givens to tie the game in the ninth, as the Yanks were able to overcome a short and appalling effort by starting J.A. Happ.
All but two of Torres & # 39; 2019 blasts have come against Baltimore and he has collected 11 homers and 21 RBI's in 20 career games against Orioles. Four of Torres & # 39; five career multihomer games have taken place with Baltimore on the other hand.
With Sanchez's 13-year-old races of the season, a three round shot from Givens took their first leg of the evening. New York won its ninth consecutive game in Baltimore, a strip that had come to an end when its peppered Happ for six runs and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings, including solo homers by Hanser Alberto and Renato Nunez.
Trey Mancini and Pedro Severino had run-scoring hits from Happ in the first inning, so Alberto and Nunez left the yard with solo homers in third. Alberto and Dwight Smith Jr. collected two-out RBI singles in fourth to hunt Happ. In four starts against Baltimore this year, Happ has allowed 15 runs over 17 1/3 innings for a 7.79 ERA.
Andrew Cashner held New York to Torres & # 39; homer through five innings, but Yanks scored twice in the sixth at Sanchez's single and Kendrys Morales groundout. Cashner allowed three runs and five hits over six innings in a no decision.
Yankees' late rally took Luke Voit from the hook for a fallen false pop in the sixth, allowing Mancini to return to the record and beat a victim fly to Baltimore's seventh round.
