Brett Gardner homered twice from the leadoff spot and had his first four RBIs of the season. Austin Romine, the No. 9 batter, also went deep and knocked in five runs. Aaron Judge, not to be outdone, clocked his latest colossal homer and scored four times as New York won its 14th in 17 games to boost the American League's best record to 15-7.

"I mean, it's a pattern we've seen before and it's frustrating," Buck Showalter said. "He's not the only one, he's not the only one. But it certainly put us in a hole early in a game that we really needed some innings and we just weren't able to deliver."

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman will make at least one more minor league rehabilitation start before returning from the disabled list, starting for Triple-A Norfolk at Charlotte on Tuesday. Zach Britton will try and make it through a full inning today in Bowie.
