The Baltimore Orioles simply don’t belong on the same baseball field as the New York Yankees.
Baltimore entered Wednesday’s matinee matchup with the Bronx Bombers 40.5 games behind New York in the American League West.
It has been downright embarrassing. Just ask Yankees stud youngster Gleyber Torres who has hit an absurd 13 homers in 17 games against Baltimore this season.
We can now add All-Star catcher Gary Sanchez to the list of Yankees players who have hit double-digit homers against Baltimore this season.
Sanchez went deep in the first inning of Wednesday’s game for a three-run blast, representing his 10th homer of the season against the lowly Orioles. It came off Dylan Bundy and traveled over the center field fence.
Baltimore pitchers have acted as a launching pad for Yankees hitters this season. It really is something to behold.
A total of 23 of the 52 homers Sanchez and Torres have hit this season have come against the Orioles. That’s just insane.
