Hicks, Montgomery help lead Yankees past Orioles

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.

This comes one day after Judge set a Statcast-era record with an exit velocity of 121 miles per hour on his 19th home run of the season.

During the teams' Sunday afternoon game at Yankee Stadium, Judge stepped to the plate against Orioles reliever Logan Verrett and absolutely massacred a 1-1 offering for his 20th home run of the season.

Aaron Judge continues to impress during the 2017 Major League Baseball season.

In Friday's opener, the Yankees banged out an 8-2 win. In fact, only one of 35 ESPN experts predicted that the team would win the division.

The Yankees pushed Masahiro Tanaka's start back a day hoping extra rest helps the struggling right-hander. "But let's get the hell out of NY, let's go to Chicago, redeem ourselves and just flip the script".

"Right now, they're swinging the bats, they're getting themselves in good hitters counts and they're not missing the fastballs". NY right-hander Luis Severino retired the first 12 Orioles. Before Trumbo hit the game-winning single in the 10th of a 6-5 win, Gausman gave up four runs and eight hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Montgomery (4-4) won his second straight start since laboring through 4 1/3 innings and throwing 98 pitches on May 29 at Baltimore.

The June 10 loss came in embarrassing fashion, a 16-3 rout in which starting pitcher Chris Tillman was abused for nine earned runs in less than two innings of work. He hit a solo shot off Dylan Bundy (6-5) into the "Judge's Chambers" section in right field to start the sixth and added a two-run drive into the second deck in right with two outs in the seventh off Edwin Jackson.

Cashner (3-5) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings. "So the goal is to get myself back to what I can do out there and, um, you know, just keep the rotation going as it is". I don't feel like [he's] picking on us.

The Yankees designated LHP Tommy Layne for assignment following the game and will recall RHP Domingo Germán from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

CLEVELAND - David Holmberg allowed two runs in five innings for his first win in two years and Chicago defeated Cleveland.

The move will allow Tanaka to miss facing the hard-hitting Baltimore Orioles in the Bronx and instead oppose the light-hitting Los Angeles Angels on Monday in Anaheim. He struck out eight and walked two.

Orioles RHP Chris Tillman (1-3, 5.59 ERA) pitches Saturday night against RHP Luis Severino (4-2, 2.90), who is 2-0 with a 2.02 ERA in his past six starts.
