Gleyber Torres hit two more homers off the Baltimore Orioles, and the New York Yankees recorded an 11-8 victory to complete a sweep of a day-night doubleheader Monday at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees won their 14th straight meeting with the Orioles and lead the season series 15-2. With three homers in Game 2, they have 59 against Baltimore this season, extending the major league record for homers against an opponent in a season.
Torres, who also homered in Monday’s first game, has 13 of his 26 homers against Baltimore, the most by any player against an opponent in a single season since divisional play began in 1969. Five of his six multi-homer games this season are against Baltimore, a major league record, and he produced his eighth career multi-homer game.
After a solo drive in New York’s 8-5 win in the opener, Torres slugged three-run homers in consecutive at-bats off Evan Phillips and Tom Eshelman in the nightcap.
