Baltimore — Having deflated the Baltimore Orioles' spirit with an unprecedented show of power, the New York Yankees bid farewell to Camden Yards for 2019 after going 10-0 in a ballpark that simply could not contain their fence-busting lineup.
Gio Urshela and Kyle Higashioka each hit two home runs, and the Yankees' long-ball outburst against Baltimore reached historical proportions Wednesday night in a 14-2 blowout that extended New York's winning streak to eight games.
Cameron Maybin also went deep for the Yankees, who tied a major league record with 16 home runs in a three-game series. New York has hit 52 homers against the Orioles this season, breaking its own major league mark of 48 against the Kansas City Athletics in 1956.
The Orioles were outscored 32-12 in the Yankees’ three-game sweep.
The sensation that comes with being dominated in a lopsided series reached a melting point for the last-place Orioles in the middle of the fifth inning. After manager Brandon Hyde leaned over and said something to Chris Davis, the first baseman lurched in Hyde's direction and had to be restrained by teammate Mark Trumbo and hitting coach Don Long.
"It was just a disagreement in the dugout. What was said, what we talked about, I'm not going to get into," Hyde said. "Frustration boils over a little bit when we're not playing our best baseball the last couple games. Unfortunately, I'm embarrassed that it was caught on camera and people had to see it, but sometimes those things happen."
Davis is batting .182 while in the middle of a seven-year, $161 million contract. He struck out for the 111th time in the third inning and was replaced by a pinch hitter in the fifth.
Davis did not make himself available in the clubhouse, but Trumbo said: "There was a little bit of a disagreement. I think this game was particularly tough and almost nothing went our way so I think everybody was pretty frustrated."
