And the crowd offered him a standing ovation after he surrendered his first base hit with one out in the fifth.

This season, those numbers are significantly different and the Yankees look to add to their totals of 93 homers and 323 runs Saturday night when they continue a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

Holliday smacked a three-run homer in the fourth, as the Yankees extended their advantage to 12-0 off Stefan Chrichton. It was the Yankees staff's longest such streak in the Expansion Era (since 1961) and the longest stretch of hitless at-bats with runners in scoring position in the majors since the Montreal Expos also held opponents hitless 45 times in 1982.

"He was really good", manager Joe Girardi quickly surmised of his lefty. Montgomery gave up three earned runs and three hits in five innings to the Orioles last time he faced the team.

"I really didn't have to search for anything that first inning". However, the team needs to start playing better or they will miss out on the postseason again with teams like the Red Sox, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, and Tampa Bay Rays competing for the two AL Wildcard spots.

Republican senators to get first glimpse of leadership's health care ideas
Burr added that the House Obamacare plan was "dead on arrival", and that "I don't see a comprehensive health care plan this year". President Donald Trump says he is sure the Senate will get a health care bill "across the finish line" this summer.

The onslaught simply continued.

Gary Sanchez kept the rally going with a two-run single to left and the Yankees led 3-0. Then Gregorius slammed a two-run shot to right field.

After Chase Headley walked and moved up on a wild pitch, Chris Carter hit an RBI single.

Castro homered leading off the second. That put the Yankees ahead, 9-0, and it ended the night for starter Chris Tillman, who was charged with all the runs.
