Yankees, With 6 Homers, Defeat the Orioles

The Yankees continued their home run binge against the Baltimore Orioles, hitting six more and getting three R.B.I. from Austin Romine in a 9-4 victory Tuesday night, their 14th consecutive win at Camden Yards.

Mike Tauchman and D.J. LeMahieu went back-to-back in the third inning, and Brett Gardner and Cameron Maybin did the same in the ninth. Didi Gregorius also connected, and Romine contributed a solo shot and a two-run double.

The Yankees have hit 38 home runs at Camden Yards, extending their single-season record for a visiting team in one ballpark. And their 14 straight wins at Baltimore mark their longest victory streak at an opponent’s stadium.

New York’s seventh straight victory was marred by the third-inning departure of second baseman Gleyber Torres with what the team described as “core pain.” Torres visited a hospital for a core issue on Sunday but played Monday as the designated hitter.

In this one, he played second base and went 0 for 2.

After the start of the game was delayed by rain for 1 hour, 12 minutes, Tauchman got things going in the third inning with his third home run in two games. LeMahieu followed with a shot to center on an 0-2 pitch from Asher Wojciechowski (2-5), and Gregorius capped the surge with a blast that landed on Eutaw Street beyond the right-field wall.

It was 5-2 in the fourth when Tauchman robbed Pedro Severino of a home run by reaching over the 7-foot wall in left field.
