Offense backs Montgomery's gem in series opener with Orioles — Yankees Postgame Notebook

"You can't ask for anymore what these guys are doing", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. The first-place Yankees have outscored Boston and Baltimore, their closest competitors in the AL East, 41-6 during their winning streak. "He didn't let it snowball", Girardi said. "They have some big right-handed bats and he did a good job".

Chris Tillman allowed nine runs, including three home runs, over 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday. The Orioles only had one hit after the second inning.

"They're a good fastball hitting team, so you really have to mix and keep them in between speeds", Montgomery said of his approach.

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.

"I wasn't trying to slow anything down". "No matter what the score is, I think that's what everybody tries to do when they're hitting and still competing and you don't want to lay down".

Aaron Judge's solo shot got it started.

Hicks has enjoyed a terrific start to the 2017 campaign as well, and he added to it during Friday night's 8-2 win over the Orioles. He features a fastball that can sit in the mid-90's range with good breaking pitches to compliment them.

And to top it off? He gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead by sending a 2-1 pitch approximately 406 feet into the section that was created on May 22 in anticipation of homers by Aaron Judge. "But I just took him out because he landed pretty hard", Showalter said. "He's been huge for us". "They got a nice ballclub over there, so we're going to have to really fight for it". "Sevy's on the mound tomorrow and let it continue".

-Gary Sanchez was 2-for-4 tonight and is 5-for-12 with two homers, six RBI, and six runs scored in three games since moving to the No. 6 slot.

Baltimore has a few interesting hitters this year. "But if that's what it took, it worked". "We're looking at things day in and day out".

-More Hicks, this on his first homer against Dylan Bundy: "He struck me out on a changeup earlier". "Especially since last season I got myself in a hole".

Judge matched a career high by getting his third three-hit game of his brief career. Just like that, the Yankees were ahead two touchdowns.

Bundy suffered the loss in three of his last four starts and is coming off his shortest stint of the season. It was a different story in the latest matchup between two promising 24-year-old arms.

Hicks, who is handling center field duties while Jacoby Ellsbury recovers from a concussion, hit the tiebreaking homer to lead off the sixth.

He's also struggled with giving up the long ball, having already allowed 17 homers this season after allowing 22 previous year. When Ells comes back? Montgomery has already made two starts against the Orioles and went 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA.
