BY foxsports • September 2, 2016

BALTIMORE (AP) Mark Trumbo hit his major league-leading 41st homer to cap a six-run second inning, and the Baltimore Orioles peppered the New York Yankees with four long balls in an 8-0 victory Friday night.

Pedro Alvarez and Chris Davis hit two-run homers in the second inning and Manny Machado added a two-run shot in the fourth. Baltimore leads the majors with 213 home runs, including 117 at home.

When Alvarez went deep, the Orioles became the 19th team in big league history to have six players hit at least 20 in the same season. Alvarez joins Trumbo, Machado (33), Davis (33), Adam Jones (24) and Jonathan Schoop (21).

Dylan Bundy (8-5) allowed two hits and four walks over 5 2/3 innings. In his previous start, the right-hander took the loss Saturday at Yankee Stadium after giving up five runs and seven hits in four innings.
