Yanks hit 5 HRs to back brilliant Severino

Luis Severino permitted just two hits and struck out eight in an electric seven-inning performance, and the Yankees hit three home runs off Baltimore starter Chris Tillman — out of five total — in a 16-3 drubbing of the Orioles on Saturday evening at Yankee Stadium.

Severino retired the first 12 men he faced before issuing a walk to open the fifth inning. Trey Mancini stroked a one-out single two batters later to break up Severino’s no-hit bid, but Baltimore was unable to mount any semblance of a response after Aaron Judge and Didi Gregorius homered in a six-run first inning.
