Torres hits 3 HRS, Yankees sweep Orioles
Gleyber Torres hit three home runs during a doubleheader sweep, including a solo shot in the nightcap, and Domingo German became the majors’ first eight-game winner in the New York Yankees’ 3-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night. Torres hit two of New York’s four homers during a 5-3 win in the first game.
The Yankees announced during the second game that third baseman Miguel Andujar, last year’s runner-up for AL Rookie of the Year, will have seasonending surgery to repair a small labrum tear in his right shoulder Monday.
New York Yankees’ Gleyber Torres points toward the sky as he nears home plate after hitting a home run during the fourth inning Wednesday.
