Yankees push back Tanaka's next start to Monday night

Greg Bird is slated to play at Triple A Thursday night as he continues his rehab assignment

New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge hit the hardest ball of 2017 Saturday night when he blasted a 121.07 miles per hour solo shot to left in the first inning against the Baltimore Orioles, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal. NY has won three straight, outscoring rivals Boston and Baltimore 25-3 over the last three nights.

Holliday hit a three-run homer in the fourth and Judge added a two-run double in the fifth. NY has won three straight, outscoring rivals Boston and Baltimore 25-3 over the past three nights. The difference of late, according to the lefty: "I've just slowed my tempo down, let my arm get up and let the ball come out of my hand".

But after that, the Orioles mustered little as Montgomery allowed just one hit after the second inning and finished with a career-high eight strikeouts. He was coming off six innings of three-hit ball in a 7-0 win at Toronto.

A sweep of the weekend series against NY will have the Orioles only half a game behind the Yankees and in sole possession of second place in the division if the Red Sox lose a game this weekend. In his last outing, the right-hander pitched for his shortest spell of the season of five innings in a 5-2 loss to the Red Sox.

"No big deal", Tanaka said through a translator.

Minus injured star Mike Trout, the Angels entered Friday tied for last in the American League in slugging percentage. The Orioles have already faced him twice, pounding him for seven runs the last time on May 31. "We want to see him clear hurdles and he continues to clear them and we really like what he's doing". An extra day is not going to hurt him.




"We're giving him smaller bits and pieces, it's kind of what you do with young players", Girardi said. "(Pitching coach Larry Rothschild is) working day in, day out.

The good news: Bundy allowed two or fewer runs for the ninth time in 12 starts this year. Manny Machado did not play due to a sore left wrist and may miss a third straight game Saturday.

Orioles RHP Chris Tillman (1-3, 5.59 ERA) starts Saturday night against RHP Luis Severino (4-2, 2.90), who is 2-0 with a 2.02 ERA in his past six starts. The world bore witness to that poise on Friday night, when Montgomery rebounded from a rough second inning to end up pitching seven strong in the Yankees' eventual 8-2 win over Baltimore.

"I would say (Judge) definitely got us started", Sanchez said.

In other news, injured closer Aroldis Chapman is scheduled to throw a simulated game Saturday morning at the team's complex in Tampa, Florida. Chapman said he expects a one-game minor league rehab assignment to follow, and he'll probably rejoin the Yankees on the West Coast in about a week. "I kept trying to throw strikes, getting ahead, and you're missing right over the heart of the plate and that's a good team".

"I think it's very important that we get these wins against teams that are right behind us", Hicks said.
