I don’t know about you, but I am so happy that the Orioles and Yankees are in the same division. So is Gleyber Torres! For the second time this year, the Bombers swept a doubleheader against Baltimore. A full recap will follow shortly, but check out the highlights in the meantime:
Winner of the Game
If Orioles pitchers weren’t already having nightmares about Torres, they will be now. The shortstop homered during the first game of the doubleheader, then hammered TWO three-run bombs tonight. He has now hit 13 home runs against Baltimore this year. We might even see him crush the single-season home run record against a team. Lou Gehrig currently holds that title with 14 against Cleveland in 1936. This series is the last time these two teams will play each other, unfortunately, but Torres has two more games to work with. You know, unless they just intentionally walk him for the rest of the series like they did in the eighth inning.
Shoutout to Brady Lail for making his MLB debut, too.
Honorable Mention: Brett Gardner, DJ LeMahieu, Gio Urshela
