BALTIMORE (AP) – Jose Trevino has given the New York Yankees one of the few things they’ve been lacking lately – some power from a key capture position.
Trevino became the first New Yorker to run at home this year when he hit three runs in the fourth leg to lift the Yankees ahead of the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Monday night.

Luis Severino allowed one hit in six innings for New York.
The Yankees traded powerful catcher Gary Sánchez for Minnesota during the off-season, and both Trevino and Kyle Higashioka have improved defensively but are sliding below 0.300. However, Trevino had a few hits on Monday, including his big run home.
“That’s great. That’s a big point for us right there,” said teammate Josh Donaldson. and today he did it again”.
Donaldson – who swapped for Sánchez – and Anthony Rizzo added home-goers in the ninth game for the Yankees, who won for the 19th time in 22 games. New York (26-9) is one of the best 35-game starts in franchise history. Only the 1939 and 1928 teams, at 28-7, were better at this point.
Anthony Santander scored twice for Baltimore to run the only one, but Orioles only managed another hit in the game.
Kyle Bradish (1-2) allowed four runs and eight hits in four thirds in the start of his fourth career. He went three and hit out six.
“Maybe he got it too early,” said Orioles manager Brandon Hyde. “I don’t think his command is as good as it used to be.”
The Yankees left the bases loaded for the first time, then Baltimore squandered a chance to take the lead after Joey Gallo misplaced Cedric Mullins’ pitch in the left half of the field for a three-point error. After walking to Trey Mancini, Orioles had his first and third with no one out, but Mancini got his first double when second man Gleyber Torres performed a catch dive aboard Santander’s softboat.
“Let’s play the game early,” said manager Aaron Boone. “I just saw the ball go into what I thought went over Rizzo’s head on the 18th half of the half with no appearance, and I would say, ‘Oh, no.’ Out of nowhere, Gleyber stepped in and turned it into a double play.”
New York led 1-0 in the third half thanks to Giancarlo Stanton’s RBI double. With two in the fourth round, Trevino flew to the right and hit the post.
Donaldson had three hits and walks to extend his upper body streak to 22 games.

New York’s starting pitchers have allowed runs three or fewer times in 33 of this season’s 35 starts.
Santander scored from the left against Severino (3-0) in the fourth half, then from the right against Aroldis Chapman in the ninth.
Rizzo, Stanton and Aaron Judge – who had one night off – were the first Yankees trio to hit double figures in home games ahead of the team’s 35th game. New York clashed with the home team for the fourth time, all with the participation of Rizzo.
OUT OF THE FRONT
The Yankees extended their advantage atop the AL East to 5 1/2 games against Tampa Bay. That matches the crosstown Mets to lead baseball’s biggest division.
NOT A BIG FAN
Boone said the new wall on the left court at Camden Yards – higher and further back – takes away at least some of the appeal of the ballpark. The front wall puts fans a little closer to the action.
“I don’t think it’s a secret or in my opinion that it’s one of the most beautiful parks in the league, and it still is,” Boone said. “For me, that makes it a little less.”
ROOM OF TRAINER

Jameson Taillon (3-1) scored for New York on Tuesday night against Orioles’ Spenser Watkins (0-1). Both pitchers will be rested for five days.
