The New York Yankees continued their dominance over the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday night as they improve their record to 16-2 against them this season. They set a new season-high of 39 games being above .500 and improve their overall record to 80-41.
Domingo German shut down the Orioles en route to his 16th win this season, where he leads the rest of the MLB. German went seven innings allowed two runs on five hits while fanning seven. It seemed that every pitch in his arsenal was working and he absolutely dominated the O’s lineup. Manager Aaron Boone mentioned that German’s breaking ball was remarkably sharp and had life to his fastball.
