Trumbo Hits 41st HR, Orioles Breeze Past Yankees 8-0

BALTIMORE (AP) — Mark Trumbo hit his major league-leading 41st homer to cap a six-run second inning, and the Baltimore Orioles peppered the New York Yankees with four long balls in an 8-0 victory Friday night.

Pedro Alvarez and Chris Davis hit two-run homers in the second inning and Manny Machado added a two-run shot in the fourth. Baltimore leads the majors with 213 home runs, including 117 at home.

When Alvarez went deep, the Orioles became the 19th team in big league history to have six players hit at least 20 in the same season. Alvarez joins Trumbo, Machado (33), Davis (33), Adam Jones (24) and Jonathan Schoop (21).

Dylan Bundy (8-5) allowed two hits and four walks over 5 2/3 innings. In his previous start, the right-hander took the loss Saturday at Yankee Stadium after giving up five runs and seven hits in four innings.

It was only the third win in eight games for the Orioles, who started the day tied with Detroit for the second AL wild-card slot.

New York finished with only two hits and fell 3 1/2 games behind Baltimore. The Yankees came to town with a streak of four straight series wins.

Rookie Chad Green (2-4) yielded four runs and five hits in 1 2/3 innings before leaving with right elbow pain.

After leaving the bases loaded in the first inning, the Orioles batted around in the second. Jones singled in a run before Alvarez launched a drive that landed on Eutaw Street beyond the 25-foot scoreboard in right field. Green left after walking Machado, and Davis greeted Nick Goody with a home run.

Trumbo followed by going deep on an 0-2 pitch, the 17th time this season the Orioles have hit back-to-back home runs.

Two innings later, Machado connected off Kirby Yates for an 8-0 lead.
