Torres’ homers lift Yanks to doubleheader sweep
UNDATED (AP) — Gleyber Torres hit a pair of three-run home runs to help New York complete a doubleheader sweep of Baltimore with an 11-8 win at Yankee stadium.
Torres also hit a home run in the first and now has a total of 13 against the Orioles this season. And he set a big league record with his fifth multihomer game against a team in a season, breaking a tie with Ralph Kiner (1947), Gus Zernial (1951) and Roy Sievers (1955).
Didi Gregorius, Gio Urshela and Cameron Maybin all hit home runs in the Yanks’ 8-5 victory this afternoon, while first baseman Mike Ford also drove one over the fence in the nightcap.
