German fastest Yankee to 9 wins since 1958 as New York rolls Baltimore

Clint Frazier’s first at-bat on Tuesday produced a barreled line drive that landed in the glove of left fielder Dwight Smith Jr., and as he returned to the third-base dugout, the Yankees outfielder permitted himself a chuckle. If his luck didn’t improve soon, he promised hitting coach Marcus Thames, “I’m not going to be smiling.”

Three hours later, Frazier was grinning broadly, having busted his slump by driving in a career-high five runs in a two-homer performance. Gary Sánchez also hit a three-run homer to help Domingo Germán become the Majors’ first nine-game winner as the Yankees trounced the Orioles on Tuesday, 11-4, logging their 10th consecutive victory at Camden Yards.
