The Yankees crushed the Orioles 14-2 on Wednesday, completing a three-game sweep and making it eight straight wins in a row for the Bombers.
In the process, they managed to set a Major League home run record as well. Here are some of the absurd power numbers that came out of Wednesday night's win:
The Yankees blasted five home runs on Wednesday-- two each from Gio Urshela and Kyle Higashioka and one from Cameron Maybin -- and have now hit 52 home runs against the Orioles, the most home runs that one team has ever hit in a single season against a single opponent. The previous record was held by the 1956 Yankees with 48 home runs against the Kansas City A's.
The Yankees also hit 5+ home runs in all three games against the O's in the series, and their power numbers this season at Camden Yards are staggering. In just 10 games played in Baltimore this season, the Yankees smashed 43 home runs, a Major League record for most home runs by a team in an away park in a single season.
For comparison, The Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants haven't hit that many home runs in their own home stadiums this season, with both teams playing more than 50 games at home to this point.
The Yankees also set a franchise record for most home runs in a three-game series with their 16 long balls against the O's.
Simply put, the Yankees are putting up historic power numbers this season, with the Orioles coming up on the wrong end of history.
