New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles

On Saturday, New York scored six times in the first inning and didn't look back on the way to a rousing 16-3 victory. With Dylan Bundy set to face Jordan Montgomery in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 9.5 runs.

Tillman actually retired the first two Yankees to face him, and almost had his first 1-2-3 first inning this season.

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

"I'm happy." He then said of his first-half success, "I got a lot of at-bats early [in the season], and I was able to keep my swing feeling good". Tanaka is 5-6 with a 6.55 ERA.

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

-Last word goes to Girardi on Hicks, this the difference between the 2016 and 2017 versions and what might happen when Jacoby Ellsbury returns: "I think demeanor has been similar". And on Friday, Showalter turned to Jackson in the seventh with the team trailing, 3-2. "Up and down, even in the leadoff spot you've got guys that can hit homers", Judge said of the lineup.

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

Not only did he not let it snowball, Montgomery retired 17 of the final 18 batters he faced.

But after that, the Orioles mustered little as Montgomery allowed just one hit after the second inning and finished with a career-high eight strikeouts.

Severino allowed one run and two hits in seven innings.

-Since saying "I'm better than this" after a rough start in Kansas City, Montgomery is 2-1 with a 1.50 ERA in his last four starts.

RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION: Caleb Joseph's pinch-hit single in the ninth was the first a Yankees opponent had with a runner in scoring position since May 31 when Jones had an RBI single at Oriole Park.

CARDINALS 3, PHILLIES 2: Aledmys Diaz hit a solo home run, Michael Wacha pitched six strong innings and host St. Louis snapped a seven-game losing streak. Dylan Bundy (6-5) tossed six solid innings but lost for the fourth time in his past five starts.

"I really didn't have to search for anything that first inning".

German, 24, is set to make his major-league debut against Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman. When the fifth inning was done, the Yankees where ahead by 14 runs. "The young man's having a good year and throwing the ball well. It just shows you what kind of team we've got".

NY has not announced a new starter for Sunday. "He didn't let it snowball", Girardi said. 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. Holliday singled and Castro doubled and Sanchez doubled home two runs to make it 3-0.
