Judge, Yankees blast Orioles, 16-3

Cashner (3-5) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings.

Everyone in Yankee Stadium tracked Aaron Judge's sixth-inning home run as it soared 495 feet - the farthest in the majors this season.

Second-year outfielder Aaron Judge leads the team in homers, smacking 19 this season to top the majors heading into Sunday's action. "That time, I got into a positive count, and he threw me a 2-0 changeup; I figured that's what he was going with, and I made sure I didn't miss it".

Girardi knows Tanaka could use a confidence boost, and on paper the matchup against the Angels is more favorable. NY slugged four homers Sunday, becoming the first team to surpass 100 this season, and outscored the Orioles 38-7 in the three-game series.

With Sunday's blasts, the 25-year-old Judge now has 21 home runs on the season. "His power's special. This is not something you see every day".

Tillman was tagged for a career-high nine runs and seven hits in 1 1/3 innings.

Would anyone have believed that that rookie would take barely two months to become the most sensational act in the Bronx (sorry, Chase Headley) and perhaps baseball altogether, with his homers setting Statcast records in subsequent days? Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said Machado was feeling a little better but still a bit sore. They make you pay for the mistakes.

Over on the Yankees' side, they're going with Chad Green on Sunday in the start. "We've seen good sliders".

"I'm very anxious to finish the process and get back here to start helping these guys", Chapman said through a translator. They've had good at-bats, but when they have a lead, they can go out there and do whatever they want strike one and just throw all sorts of pitches up there and they're throwing them for strikes. The Yankees are the only AL team to have used only five starters this deep in the season. Over his last five outings, Serverino is undefeated with an ERA of only 1.35, a performance that is not lost on his battery mate Gary Sanchez. "He was calm out there", Sanchez said. The slider, the changeup was really good.

Sunday's loss was the Orioles' ninth straight on the road, and their 13th in their past 14 games away from Camden Yards. 1B Greg Bird (bruised right ankle) went 0 for 5 in his second game for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since his rehab assignment was moved from Class A Tampa.

It's hard to imagine it would be more devastating than this, as they've scored eight or more runs in five consecutive games for the first time since 1956.
