Even Donald Trump wasn’t this hard on Baltimore.The Yankees won their 15th straight game over the Orioles on Tuesday night, this time 8-3, making another mockery of Baltimore’s pitching.
It’s their longest winning streak against an opponent in one season since they won 15 in a row against the Philadelphia A’s in 1954.They have now scored eight or more runs in six consecutive games versus Baltimore — all in the past nine days — and are a season-high 39 games over .500 (80-41).
“It’s been crazy,’’ Aaron Boone said of his team’s success versus Baltimore. “It’s not easy to do by any means. I think our guys have a really good mindset, no matter who we’re playing.”And for a change, the Yankees didn’t just do it with their bats.
They also got another solid outing from Domingo German, as the right-hander continues to be their most dependable starter. He allowed two runs in seven innings, helping Boone rest his bullpen a day after a doubleheader — and during a stretch in which the Yankees are playing 19 games in 17 days.
