Judge, Yankees batter Orioles 16-3 for 4th straight win

SAN DIEGO - Lorenzo Cain hit two homers, including a grand slam that capped a nine-run rally in the eighth inning that sent Kansas City over San Diego.

Hicks was batting.205 with two homers and 12 RBIs through New York's first 58 games a year ago after joining the team in a trade from the Minnesota Twins.

"I feel like I know why my command is not there", Tanaka said.

The 28-year-old Tanaka has lost a career-worst five straight outings and is 5-6 with a 6.55 ERA in 12 starts this season.

The offensive outburst was no doubt welcomed by manager Joe Girardi, but hardly necessary, considering starting pitcher Luis Severino was atop his game.

Manager Joe Girardi said Friday that the struggling Tanaka will start Monday at the Los Angeles Angels instead of at home Sunday against the Orioles. And on Friday, Showalter turned to Jackson in the seventh with the team trailing, 3-2.

"We're just not missing our pitch", Judge said.

Hicks turned in his second multi-homer game of the season.

Montgomery struck out a career-high eight batters. He has allowed 27 runs and 11 homers over his last 22 2/3 innings. Two runs scored on Austin Romine's two-run single, putting the Yankees up, 8-2.

In the second, second baseman Castro cracked a three-run shot to left-center field, his 11th of the season. Since then, the Yankees have allowed three runs in the last 29 inning, s and since May 31, opponents are 0-for-42 with runners in scoring position.

The Yankees are trying desperately to get their ace to snap out of his season-long funk. Sanchez, Judge, Holliday, Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorius each homered.

Tanaka gave up three home runs in five innings Tuesday night during a 5-4 loss to Boston, his fifth consecutive defeat. Dylan Bundy (6-5) tossed six solid innings but lost for the fourth time in five outings. "No matter what the score is, I think that's what everybody tries to do when they're hitting and still competing and you don't want to lay down".

Kevin Gausman will get the start for Baltimore on Sunday. When the fifth inning was done, the Yankees where ahead by 14 runs. "I'm not giving out any details, but I'm working on it". "The young man's having a good year and throwing the ball well".

"I'm not going to fault our guys, especially when you get down".

NY dropped the series opener to the Red Sox before winning the next two by a combined 17-1 as the baby bombers stepped up. Baltimore RHP Darren O'Day was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder and RHP Stefan Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk. Schoop registered a run on Saturday; Trumbo whiffed 0-for-3.

A sweep of the weekend series against NY will have the Orioles only half a game behind the Yankees and in sole possession of second place in the division if the Red Sox lose a game this weekend.
