Yankees look to continue domination of Orioles

Judge hits pair of 3-run HRs, Yanks rout Orioles NEW YORK - Aaron Judge had a pair of three-run homers for a career-best six RBIs, Todd Frazier hit a three-run homer that chased Wade Miley with one out in a six-run first inning and the New York Yankees routed the fading Baltimore Orioles 13-5 on Thursday night.

Are 41-27 (.603) at Yankee Stadium. this season and have clinched a winning home record for the 26th consecutive season (since 1992).according to the Elias Sports Bureau, it's the second-longest such streak in Major League Baseball history, trailing only the Yankees' 47-year streak from 1918-64.

By making a switch in their rotation order, the Yankees avoided pitching Luis Severino against the Twins - a club he might have to face in the AL wild card game.

In Washington, Alex Wood struck out eight in six innings, Corey Seager hit a three-run homer during a five-run second and the Dodgers won on the road. His 18th home run of the season helped the Phillies beat the Marlins.

Yankees left-hander Jordan Montgomery (8-7) allowed four hits in six innings. He walked Aaron Judge with one out in the fifth and the score 2-2, and Castro gave up a two-out homer to Gregorius. "I wasn't blocking the plate", Castillo said. "[It's] just really impressive what he's done".

The 24-year-old Bird, who hit 11 home runs in 46 games as a rookie in 2015, missed all of last season while recovering from shoulder surgery. It didn't really hurt or bother me. After walking Chris Davis on five pitches with two outs in the top of the second, Severino got ahead of Welington Castillo with two fastballs, but Castillo got just enough Severino's third heater, stroking a low-slicing drive into the right-field seats, giving Baltimore a 2-1 lead. Bird then hit a 2-2 pitch about halfway up the second deck in right field to knock out Hellickson. The shortstop is having a very nice season at the dish. The veteran right-hander is 2-5 with a 7.29 ERA since being traded from Philadelphia on July 28.

SC receiver Samuel out for season
The Cats' next two offensive drives were ended by turnovers, an interception from Stephen Johnson and a fumble recovered by SC . SC field goal kicker Parker White missed both of his opportunities - from 52 and 54 yards, while Woznick missed from 42 yards.

NY increased its run total against Baltimore to 150, setting the major league record for the most runs scored by any team against an opponent since 1961.

The Yankees' surge has not been against soft competition, as their games in September have been against Boston, Baltimore, Texas and Tampa Bay - none of whom have given up on their 2017 hopes.

As the Orioles spent most of the second half bunched with a group of up to eight teams fighting for the second wild-card spot, Showalter has maintained the Orioles couldn't be preoccupied with the standings, that they were their own biggest competition. It's just a bad combination.

In Minneapolis, Josh Donaldson homered and drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning with an infield single that ricocheted off the mound, sending Toronto to the win.

In Cincinnati, Zack Cozart hit two of the hosts' four solo home runs, powering the last-place Reds to the victory. LHP Caleb Smith (viral infection) was put on the 10-day DL, retroactive to Wednesday.
