Yankees’ homers doom Orioles again, Birds fall to .500 with 6-4 loss

The New York Yankees came to Camden Yards with a fragment of the offense that produced the most home runs in major league history a season ago. The first two games of their series against the Orioles showed plenty of that power remains.

The Orioles dropped the series and fell to .500 with a 6-4 loss to the Yankees that lasted 3 hours, 42 minutes Saturday. In the series’ first two games, the Orioles (4-4) have allowed 14 runs, all coming via seven Yankees long balls.

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge provided two homers Saturday, both off Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy, giving him his eighth career multi-homer game and fourth against the Orioles.
