Yankees.com: Rookie monster: Sanchez powers Yanks by O’s

- Gary Sanchez made history as he slugged the 11th home run of a blistering rookie month to remember, while Starlin Castro and Aaron Hicks also launched deep drives in powering the Yankees past the Orioles, 13-5, on Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees posted a double-digit run total for the second consecutive game, thumping right-hander Dylan Bundy for five runs and seven hits over four innings.

Castro and Hicks each collected three RBIs to pace the squad, slugging a pair of two-run homers in the fifth inning off T.J. McFarland. The victory moved New York (67-61) a season-high six games over .500, and within 2 1/2 games of the O’s (70-58) for the second American League Wild Card slot.

Gary freakin’ Sanchez. Wow.

Sanchez is doing things you just don’t see ballplayers do. This reminds me of A-Rod in 2007, except it’s a 23 year old catcher! Amazing.

The rest of the offense wasn’t too shabby themselves…
