Hicks, Montgomery help lead Yankees past Orioles


11 June, 2017

It certainly didn't hurt Severino that the Yanks mashed four of their five homers and plated a dozen runs by the fourth inning, beginning again with another exit-velocity record for Major League Baseball long-ball leader Aaron Judge (121.1 miles per hour, that's ludicrous speed!) in a six-run first against former All-Star Chris Tillman. He has lost his last three starts and was hit hard by the Yankees on May 30 in Baltimore, allowing five runs and seven hits - three homers - in 2 2/3 innings. Edwin Jackson allowed two runs on five hits in 1.2 innings.

Hicks hit a two-run shot into the second deck in right for his 10th home run, giving him 34 RBIs to go along with a.426 on-base percentage.

Tanaka, who finished seventh in the American League Cy Young Award voting last season, is 5-6 with a 6.55 ERA through 12 starts this year. Hicks made the Yankees' catch of the night, snaring Adam Jones' swiftly-dropping liner to finish off Tyler Clippard's 1-2-3 eighth, before Austin Romine smacked a bases-loaded, two-run single in the bottom of the frame to finish the scoring. It was a different story in the latest matchup between two promising 24-year-old arms. He took a 2-0 lead into the sixth inning before allowing a two-run homer by Justin Smoak.

Aaron Judge started Saturday night's Yankee parade of hits and runs with a signature clout.

On the other side, well, the offense was reactive to start and became Aarons' Party as the night wore on. He will increase it to 35 pitches Monday and throw live batting practice Thursday. The over is also 4-1 in the Yankees' last five games versus a team with a winning record, is 14-5 in their last 19 games against divisional opponents, and are 9-4 in their last 13 home games versus a right-handed starter. There is no timetable for his return.

The offensive outburst was no doubt welcomed by manager Joe Girardi, but hardly necessary, considering starting pitcher Luis Severino was atop his game. He struck out six and walked two. He has been sidelined since May 13 with rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder, but said he hasn't felt any discomfort since the day he went on the DL. Chapman is scheduled to pitch one inning on Tuesday with Class A Tampa and another at Double-A Trenton on Friday. CF Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) will not join the club on their upcoming West Coast trip.

Orioles: RHP Kevin Gausman (3-4, 5.86 ERA) tries to help Baltimore avoid a sweep in the series finale.

Montgomery scattered three hits and three walks on the afternoon.

Montgomery has been a solid addition to the Yankees rotation and snapped a four-start winless streak by holding the Toronto Blue Jays scoreless on three hits in six innings on Saturday.

He turned on an 0-1 changeup, clearing the Orioles bullpen beyond the left-field fence and sending it deep into the stands.
