Chris Carter is back at first base Saturday in NY

They again laid the lumber to an overmatched pitching staff, scoring six runs in the first inning and hitting five home runs in a 16-3 massacre of the Orioles on Saturday night in front of 45,232 at the Stadium. "Up and down, even in the leadoff spot you've got guys that can hit homers", Judge said of the lineup. "We're getting deep into counts, and when you leave something over the middle, we're depositing it and doing some damage".

Chris Tillman's worst night as a major league pitcher ended as he watched the New York Yankees' Starlin Castro trot around the bases.

"He was really good", manager Joe Girardi quickly surmised of his lefty.

ATLANTA - Steven Matz pitched seven impressive innings in his season debut, Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer and NY beat Atlanta to get the sweep.

After three straight one-out walks, Holland retired Ben Zobrist on a short flyball and struck out a swinging Jason Heyward for his major league-best 23rd save.

Montgomery (4-4) won his second straight start after laboring through 4 1/3 innings at Baltimore on May 29.

The Yankees matched their biggest inning of the season by scoring six times with two outs in the first off Tillman.

"I feel like I understand what I need to do", Tanaka said.

Holliday singled, Castro doubled and Sanchez lined a two-run single.

The Yankees extended the lead to 14-0 with one out in the fifth when Judge lined a double to left field off Edwin Jackson. After Chase Headley walked, Chris Carter's single brought him in for the frame's final run.

Coming into the season, the Orioles were one of the favorites to win the division, but a slow start to the season has them sitting in 3rd place, three and a half games behind the Yankees and half a game behind the Boston Red Sox. I like the way NY has been playing as of late, though, so I'll take the Yankees here.

Dustin McGowan (4-0) earned the win in relief of shaky starter Vance Worley. He lost his flawless game bid by walking Mark Trumbo to start the fifth and lost the no-hit bid by allowing a single to Trey Mancini two batters later.

This win came against an Oriole team that Montgomery failed to make it out of the fifth inning against 11 days ago. Layne has a 7.50 ERA in 18 appearances this season, all in relief. Bundy has lost three of his last four decisions while pitching fairly well, and the 24-year-old is 6-4 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.13 WHIP overall. NY opponents had been 0-for-45 with runners in scoring position.

Judge broke his own Statcast record and owns the four hardest-hit hits in 2017. Castillo has been on the 10-day DL since May 31 with a testicular injury. 1B Greg Bird played his second game for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since his rehab assignment was moved from Class A Tampa. There is no timetable for his return.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi says Tanaka will pitch Monday night at the Los Angeles Angels rather than Sunday at home against AL East-rival Baltimore. CF Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) will not join the club on their upcoming West Coast trip.

Chris Davis and Joey Rickard homered for the Orioles, who lost for the 13th time in 19 games.

Hicks batted.217 with eight homers and 31 RBIs for the Yankees previous year after arriving in a trade with Minnesota for reserve catcher John Ryan Murphy, who began the day hitting.204 in Triple-A.
