NEW YORK (AP) — Delmon Young, Adam Jones and Matt Wieters homered as the Baltimore Orioles teed off for 20 hits, battering the New York Yankees 14-5 Tuesday.
Young and Wieters each drove in three runs, and Jones delivered one of the Orioles’ four doubles at a half-empty Yankee Stadium.
Everyone in Baltimore’s starting lineup got a hit and scored a run. The Orioles posted their second-highest hit total in the Bronx, eclipsed only by a 22-hit outburst in 1986.
By the late innings, the game took on a spring training feel. The Yankees pulled several starters and the often-demanding crowd didn’t even bother to boo while the Birds ran around the bases.
