Yankees sweep Orioles in Camden after 9th inning walk

Given their scorching success, there were more than a few eyebrows raised when the Yankees posted a lineup card on Thursday that lacked both Gleyber Torres and Gary Sánchez, who have already combined to mash 19 dingers off Baltimore’s homer-prone pitching staff.

The decision to rest the stars seemed scripted by the ninth inning, as both were available to pinch-hit when the Yankees needed them most. Torres walked, advanced on Sanchez’s single and scored on Aaron Hicks’ bases-loaded free pass as the Yankees completed a four-game sweep of the Orioles with a 6-5 victory at Camden Yards.
