10:00 pm
big-league team, had a nice year last season, 7-2 in a 1.27 era and he'll roll a quick out off the bat of welington castillo, one gone. go seven tonight and had the luxury of pitching with the lead virtually the entire evening after the yankees got him six in the first. he put them on cruise control. give up a solo home run in the seventh, the only real blemish ended up allowing just two hits in the game and is in line for his fifth winner of the year. here's joey rickard with one gone making his first plate appearance tonight. >> he was outstanding. severino in a nice rhythm, a good feeling to have him in the rotation along with cc sabathia, a pleasant surprise, and to dominance
10:01 pm
the opposite spectrum of the fastball velocity. tanaka can get out of the funk and get closer to where he's been for the last four years. they've got a pleasant staff with their offense. >> i think looking forward to tomorrow series finality, when we visited with joe girardi, the only thing he would share with us regarding his choice for starter tomorrow, because they pushed tanaka back, is that if things go well and they get along one from severino, which they did, they can piece together a start tomorrow from what they have in their bullpen. >> i wonder if he's our guy, record with a shout out to left field and that one is going to go. solo shot for joey rickard.
10:02 pm
everything you got going the right way. he knows that. >> one in and one out, and now ruben tejada. we've talked a lot tonight about the milestones that the yankees lineup in particular
10:03 pm
route four by season's end. there is another milestone coming from somebody on the field that's not necessarily wearing the players uniform. >> today is his 4,992nd major league game and barring a rainout or scheduling change he is going to get to 5,000 and become the third umpire to reset figures. we've all got our favorite joe west stories but here's one of mine. he told us recently, he like to welcome young players into the league by saying i hope you play in this game a long time, as long as you're here, i won't be the ugliest guy in the league. while, david ortiz is one of the many players he told this to end last year ortiz is getting ready to retire, steps into the box at fenway with west behind the plate says joe, i need to talk to. joe says, get the box. david said no, joe, you know i'm retiring. joe says get in the box. davi
10:04 pm
next year, you'll be the ugliest guy in the league. >> cowboy joe. the renaissance man, the recording artist, the umpire that is joe west. that's popped for torre is at second and out number two. >> i think i have with joe west is a red sock and i was like, you know, pitching all these years with joe west, every once in a while he would stare strict on the middle just to see how you react so i decided to ask the first base coach what song does he want to hear when i come up to the mound the next day? because i was pitching. he gave me some obscure song thinking there was no way i would find it. i found it, i got to the mound. he was tapping his foot, he's in a good mood. as like all right.
10:05 pm
for the last 18 years of my career? problem is he only lasted three innings. >> did you ever discuss that with him? >> he smiled. you could tell that the song meant something to him. i didn't know anything about the song. i was just trying to be in the good graces of joe west. >> off the end of the bat. handles it without a problem. the solo home run by joey rickard, a 14-2 yankee lead.
10:06 pm
10:07 pm
cricket has something epic for you. we've got more 4g lte coverage than t-mobile or sprint. switch now and get a brand new smartphone for free! plus, you can get a $50 bill credit, even if you don't need a phone! cricket wireless. something to smile about. >> attempted to take a look at our hartford prevailing moments of the game. aaron judge with a solo shot, castro's three run homer, didi gregorius three run home run on the three run blast by matt holliday. for more home runs for a
10:08 pm
that's on a franchise record pace, part of a 14-2 yankee's lead in the last of the eighth. another new pitcher for baltimore is right-hander mike wright taking over on the mound, the fifth oriole to pitch in the sun and some additional defensive changes for baltimore as well as the sun is starting to resemble a great lead with all the switching and the f troopers that have gotten involved. mark trumbo is moving to third base from dh so the orioles lose their dh, not that it will matter a lot here. it's his first time at the hot corner since 2013 as an angel. >> a chance with the finger ball throwing mike wright. the slider, change it.
10:09 pm
one ball and two strikes. it's been one of those nights for the orioles. chris tillman started tonight, went in inning and the third and gave up a career worst nine earned runs in the orioles haven't had a chance to get it back together since then. test. test. test. for buck showalter whose team has only one day off between here and the all-star break. two key relievers on the dl. this is what is looking at coming up, getting into miami in the
10:10 pm
this series. not sure how he got out of the way that time or did he even get out of the way? fastball up and in. turgeon look like he was going to hit the ball got up there and hit him. >> he was able to separate his hands from the bat, but that wasn't the case that he's aboar aboard.
10:11 pm
gary sanchez has singled in a pair of double tonight. >> he will do the majority of the catching. went to houston and freed up that spot for sanchez. could also dh. >> two balls and no strikes for mike wright. >> to finish that point where they were talking about holiday and the cardinals, the bonuses he can dh a lot. he will play the field very often. that might've been part of the decision. >> sanchez with a shot to left field and out of here! home run number 55 for new york
10:12 pm
tonight. that one left the ballpark in a blink of an eye. >> i'm going to guess. you guess and i guess. 115.8. >> pretty good guess. i'm going to price is right you and i'm going to say 115.9. >> drumroll. in >> 16-2, new york. >> may be the machine broke. >> did not register. >> too low? >> we got the number.
10:13 pm
stuff. 115.1. very nice. getting back to the exit velocity conversation because we are in such a rush to quantify every single occurrence on the baseball field these days, for me, the more interesting application of exit velocity is the smaller numbers induced by pitchers. i love hearing about how dallas keuchel and the likes have relatively low exit velocity. i mean, i get it. it's hit hard and it's going to go. but when you hear that dallas keuchel is inducing contact at 86 miles an hour where the average pitcher gets hit at 94, that's interesting to me. >> it goes against what you would think as we get a chance to look at his home run.
10:14 pm
wasn't very high. he just keeps his hand back. he just smokes it. but you're right about the fact that pitching. >> there is a flare that's going to jump in. now every starter has at least a base hit tonight for new york. >> now everyone is checked in. >> that's exactly, what used to be finding the way to keep the ball off the barrel of the bat and greeting leg movement and the ability to hit your spots. that's what he's learned how to do is he kind of reinvented himself. he relies on breaking
10:15 pm
occasional for steamer. >> he's got a pair of hits tonight. something about head-to-head contests with the orioles brings out the real power in the yankee lineup. tonight is the third occasion this year that they've struck for a five home run game. the orioles are the victims in two of those games. >> do we know the area code by chance question marks 630? is there such? >> i'm sure we could find that in a couple of keystrokes. >> that's a game we always play, we look at the first three innings to determine the area code based on the runs. >> that's fascinating. but tonight telecaster sponsored by the all-new chrysler pacifica. and by cricket wireless. something to smile about.
10:16 pm
630 area code. we have a team of people in the production truck seriously trying to figure out where the 630 is. here's rob refsnyder now. >> the yankees have dialed chicago. >> i got it. i like that. the neck i get a chance to finish. >> it's like the western suburbs, we are told. they have dialed highland park. two balls and no strikes to rob refsnyder. >> we got some people listening again, i've got some text on the chicago area code. >> very good. >> a ball and district.
10:17 pm
mike wright hit the leadoff batter and then the two-run home run by sanchez, doubled by headley. >> you can come up with that, that's the game you play. you also get close to the area where you start matching the batting average with the quality of at-bats to see one that no longer, 213 at-bats, 213 average, starting to get close to that kind of game. there's a lot of different ways to pass the time. >> at what point in the game like this did you guys used to break into the trainer's room and get that free stuff to freeze all the bugs in the bullpen? i don't think they use that spring anymore, do they question marks because they don't. they are much more enlightened to the evils of fluorocarbon's. freezing bugs down there was a pastime. 1-2. >> the time of the day in batting average, it would have
10:18 pm
232, time of the day, .232 batting average. 3:15. >> left-hander tommy layne up for the yankees. perhaps getting an opportunity to pinch the ninth-inning goodness one. >> two more batters for a tripl triple. >> there is a chance that he could have what would be a bonus six plate appearance tonight. that would give them an opportunity for a triple to complete the cycle. actually, judge has been pulled out of the game. >> my scorecard told me that. >> it happened. >> figured i would talk about it anyway.
10:19 pm
already started by the way. the reds are in los angeles to play the dodgers. judges chambers here in the bronx. full count to rob refsnyder. swinging a mess finishes off the inning for mike wright. another home run for the yankees, there fifth of the evening, and it has been all new york here in the bronx on this saturday.

10:22 pm
the two, three, four batters for baltimore, just two runs on three hits. it's a stark contrast with the yankees have accomplished, 16 runs on 18 hits, five home runs tonight, and a rather lopsided looking evening with tommy layne trying to finish things out. >> with the yankees have assured themselves as they are too close as a competitor's. they will have gained at least a game on each. they've got a chance to finish this off tomorrow, and sweeping before they head out west to the road. >> red sox currently leading the detroit tigers 6-3, that's an eighth-inning score, two balls and two strikes now.

there is going to be a lot talked about regarding the four-game winning streak for the yankees come sunday morning and the damage they've done done offensively including tonight. 41 runs in the four games. again, you lose sight of how well they pitch during that period. >> they have done a nice job and when you score early runs it is much easier to pitch. there is no doubt about that. but look, they've done a lot of this damage and haven't really relied on it, they don't get much work. orioles are down to a final out tonight. two outs in the night than a blowout game just to kind of get them reset so that he's not rusty when they do bring them into a one-run game, until chapman can come back and resume the closers duty. >> he still on

10:28 pm
82 expos for the third longest such stretch since 1974. i know that's a lot to get your head around but we thought it was pretty cool. >> i like it. 16-3 and i still like it. >> why not? you're going to lose sight of how good severino was in the morning because of all the offense of fireworks here. he made it seven straight start with at least seven strikeouts and one or fewer walks. more importantly you want it or will win it pending the outcome of this final set of swings, 2-2 the count. big saturday night crowd in the

it was all yankees. they were doing everything right. 16 runs, 18 hits, five home runs for them. a league leading 19 but we are seeing the development of a future ace in major league baseball right in front of our eyes. >> he will be the future ace. severino is a world talent. i love to see guys pitching aggressive. he starting to figure out how he's reacting to stuff and tell you what. with that fastball, it opens up the slider and makes headers chase down and away. that's harder than the fastball. this is how good this kid is. you're seeing a little bulldog in a minute i'm telling you right now in the near future he will be the ace for a long, long time. we just gotta keep that elbow healthy. if they do that he'll win a cy young in the future. >> for you to say that, last five starts is allowed five total runs.
