BALTIMORE (AP) — Despite all the injuries Jimmie Foxx Jersey , and regardless of the deficit they face in theong finish on a heck of a season.Luke Voit went 3 for 3 with a two-run homer to help Luis Severino earn his major league-leading 17th victory, and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Sunday night to complete a four-game sweep.The Yankees have won eight of nine to move within six games of first-place Boston in the AL East, the closest they’ve been since Aug. 1. Boston owns the best record in the majors, and New York is a close second .“We’re not thinking about Red Sox,” Severino said. “We’re thinking about our game, and thinking about winning every day. At the end of next month, if it’s going to be close or not, we don’t know. But we’re going to play hard every day.”Rookie Miguel Andujar also had three hits and two RBIs for New York, which outscored the Orioles 27-12 during its first four-game sweep in Baltimore since August 2003.Severino (17-6) allowed four hits and two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings, striking out eight. The right-hander was 2-4 with a 7.26 ERA over his previous six starts before returning to form against the Orioles, who own the worst record in the big leagues (37-94) and rank last in the AL in batting average.“That’s first-half-of-the-year dominant fastball http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-dustin-pedroia-jersey ,” manager Aaron Boone said. “The slider was still a little inconsistent for him. But I thought stuff-wise and being able to pitch with his fastball, he was electric. So hopefully another step forward for him.”David Robertson worked the ninth for his fourth save.Even though the Yankees are without slugger Aaron Judge, catcher Gary Sanchez and closer Aroldis Chapman, they found a way to dispose of the Orioles.“Look, this was really nice,” Boone said. “I tonight, honestly, we were dragging a little bit, just with the road trip and the doubleheader yesterday. So for us to be able to grind that win out…”The Orioles have lost eight straight, one shy of their season high. Baltimore has endured five losing streaks of at least seven games this year.Dylan Bundy (7-13) pitched five innings, giving up four runs and six hits — including his major league-leading 34th home run.“Everybody is frustrated with the way their season is going personally, so it’s affecting us as a team Carl Yastrzemski Jersey ,” Bundy said. “But I think we’re all trying to get better.”Voit got New York started with a two-run drive in the second inning, his third homer with New York since being traded from the Cardinals on July 28. All three long balls have come within the last three games.Andujar doubled in two runs in the third to make it 4-0, and Voit singled and scored on a wild pitch in the sixth for a 5-1 lead.In the Baltimore half, after Trey Mancini hit a leadoff homer , a throwing error by shortstop Gleyber Torres led to Severino’s exit and an unearned run.300 ON HOLDNew York slugger Giancarlo Stanton went 0 for 5 with four strikeouts and remains one homer shy of 300 for his career. He was 1 for 15 with eight strikeouts in the series.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: Sanchez (groin) will begin a rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre. “He’ll be there playing several games this week getting ready to go,” Boone said. … SS Didi Gregorius (left heel) will be evaluated by a doctor Monday. Boone hopes Gregorius and Sanchez will return for a road trip that begins Sept. 3 in Oakland. … Judge is still “waiting for that pain to get out” of his fractured right wrist, Boone said. “Once that fracture is healed, then we go.”Orioles: Rookie CF Cedric Mullins was bothered by a sore hip and missed his first game since being recalled from the minors on Aug. 10. “I’m hoping it’s a short-term thing,” manager Buck Showalter said. Mullins was batting .309 with five doubles and two homers in 15 starts.UP NEXTYankees: Masahiro Tanaka (9-4, 3.90 ERA) starts Monday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox at Yankee Stadium. The right-hander is 4-0 with a 2.23 ERA in five career starts against the Sox.Orioles: Baltimore concludes the homestand with a three-game set against Toronto beginning Monday. Rookie David Hess (2-8, 5.50 ERA) pitches the opener for the Orioles. WASHINGTON (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt changed his lineup after arriving at Nationals Park, dropping catcher Yadier Molina from second to sixth.Molina responded with a grand slam Ted Williams Jersey , Marcell Ozuna homered twice and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Washington Nationals 11-8 on Tuesday night.Molina’s sixth career grand slam provided a cushion for St. Louis, making it 11-5 with two outs in the ninth.“It did work out. We were happy with it,” Shildt said. “Just thinking about different ways as the lineup has looked the last couple of days, maybe lengthening it out, spreading some things out a little bit.”The Cardinals, who occupy the second NL wild card spot, hit five homers overall as they stopped a three-game skid.Right fielder Yairo Munoz robbed Ryan Zimmerman of a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth, reaching over the fence and pulling it back into the field of play for a two-run double.Tyson Ross (8-9) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win and Jordan Hicks got the final out for his sixth save in 11 chances.Ozuna and Paul DeJong homered leading off the sixth inning to break a 4-4 tie, and one out later, Patrick Wisdom went deep to make it 7-4.Making his second major league appearance, reliever Austen Williams (0-1) gave up all three of those homers. He allowed none in 68 innings this season in Double-A and Triple-A.“There’s just things that I might be able to do in the minor leagues that I can’t here,” Williams said. “I need to trust my breaking ball more and just try and be better with two strikes if I want to throw a fastball.”The 4-hour http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-dustin-pedroia-jersey , 10-minute game included 16 walks and 20 strikeouts. St. Louis pitchers walked 11.“The walks are concerning. That’s 11, 10 yesterday and eight the day before,” Shildt said. “It’s actually kind of impressive. … We’ve had a real opportunity to win all the last three games.”Wilmer Difo homered and Bryce Harper had a double and three walks in five plate appearances for the Nationals, who fell one game below .500 after relievers Williams and Solis combined to give up seven runs.“They are going to get an opportunity to pitch, so they got to realize if they want to pitch here they got to get outs,” manager Dave Martinez said. “I can’t keep using the same guys every single day.”Ozuna led off the second with his 17th homer, and Matt Carpenter capped the inning with a two-run single that made it 4-0.Washington rallied in the fifth when Zimmerman led off with a grounder to second that second baseman Munoz misplayed for an error. Harper later drove in two with his bases-loaded double, and Trea Turner and Juan Soto drew bases-loaded walks.Erick Fedde allowed four runs in five innings. John Gant of St. Louis allowed three unearned runs in 4 1/3 innings.WALK OUTSt. Louis picked up a first-inning out when Harper walked on a 3-2 pitch with Turner running from first. Despite the walk, catcher Molina threw to Munoz. The Cardinals appealed the play, and upon review Turner was called out. Though entitled to second base via Harper’s walk, Turner slid past the bag and was tagged out.ROSTER MOVESThe Nationals recalled a top prospect, OF Victor Robles Nomar Garciaparra Jersey , from Triple-A Syracuse along with INF Adrian Sanchez and RHP Austin Voth and selected the contract of RHP Kyle McGowin from Syracuse. Robles flied out as a pinch-hitter in the sixth. Washington reinstated Fedde and RHP Joe Ross from the 60-day disabled list and activated LHP Tommy Milone from the 10-day DL. Milone was then assigned outright to Syracuse.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: Manager Mike Shildt said 2B Kolten Wong (left hamstring strain) will be activated Wednesday.Nationals: LHP Sean Doolittle (left toe inflammation) will throw another simulated game Wednesday. “His (velocity) was a little down in the last one so we just want to make sure he’s not tinkering with his mechanics or anything like that,” Martinez said. … RHP Jefry Rodriguez will move to the bullpen to limit his innings and Ross will start Friday against the Cubs.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (13-4, 2.96 ERA), who was originally listed as Tuesday’s starter, will instead go in Wednesday’s finale. He gave up four runs in seven innings to Washington on Aug. 13.Nationals: RHP Tanner Roark (8-14, 2.96 ERA) makes the second home start of his career against the Cardinals.
