NEW YORK (AP) Gunnar Henderson set career highs with two homers, four hits and five RBIs - all in the first four innings - and the Baltimore Orioles routed Luis Severino and the New York Yankees 14-1 on Thursday night.

Henderson hit his first leadoff homer before the Orioles sent 21 batters to the plate in the third and fourth innings, opening a 13-0 lead with 11 hits, three walks and one hit batter.

Baltimore scored its most runs since a 15-10 win over Boston last Aug. 19 and had 20 hits, its high since 21 in an 18-5 victory over Cleveland on June 6, 2021. Ryan O’Hearn had three hits and four RBIs and Cedric Mullins hit a two-run double for the Orioles, who won their second straight to gain a four-game split.

Severino (1-4) allowed seven runs and 10 hits over 2 2/3 innings and has a 7.38 ERA with a .315 opponents' batting average and .560 slugging percentage. He got just three swings and misses on the 23 fastballs.

Severino has given up 37 runs in his last seven games - the worst such stretch for a Yankees pitcher since CC Sabathia gave up 39 runs in seven games from July 14 through Aug. 18, 2013.

Kyle Bradish (5-4) allowed three hits over six innings.

New York got its only run on Billy McKinney's two-out, two-strike RBI single in the ninth.

Every Baltimore starter had a hit except rookie Colton Cowser, appearing in his second big league game. The 14 runs were the most the Orioles have scored against the Yankee since a 17-9 win on Sept. 27, 2005.

A Bronx cheer rose up from the crowd of 39,766 when Cedric Mullins grounded out, ending a five-run fourth. Fans paused from their wave during the fifth inning and booed when catcher Jose Trevino and first baseman DJ LeMahieu let a pop-up by Ramón Urias fall behind them.

Isiah Kiner-Falafa made his fourth pitching appearance of the season. He allowed one hit in a scoreless inning, lowering his ERA to 2.25.


Henderson and Yankees manager Aaron Boone each spoke Thursday to YES Network cameraman Pete Stendel, who sustained a broken left eye socket when he was hit by Henderson’s errant throw in Wednesday night’s game. Stendel, who gave a peace sign as he was carted off the field after a 17-minute delay, was released from a hospital Thursday.

“Glad everything was OK,” Henderson said. “He just reached out and said ‘Don’t let it affect you in any way. Things happen.’”

“I’m glad he’s able to be at home resting,” Boone said. “Obviously a very scary situation. I know I saw it in real time and it kind of freaked me out a little bit.”


The Yankees recalled RHP Deivi García from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill the roster spot opened when RHP Randy Vásquez was optioned to the Triple-A affiliate after Wednesday’s game. New York claimed LHP Anthony Misiewicz off waivers from Detroit and assigned him to Scranton. … The Orioles traded RHP Chris Vallimont to Cleveland for cash. Vallimont made his big league debut Monday and was designated for assignment Wednesday.


Orioles: LF Austin Hays (left rib) felt better and hopes to return this weekend. Hays was injured Sunday during a collision with Minnesota's Donovan Solano, hours after Hayes learned he’d been selected to the AL All-Star team for the first time . … OF Aaron Hicks was scratched from the starting lineup about 90 minutes before first pitch.

Yankees: OF Jake Bauers (shoulder) had a cortisone shot for a bruised rotator cuff sustained while making a diving catch Wednesday and likely will go in the injured list. … OF Aaron Judge (right toe) is hitting off a tee, facing both soft and overhand tosses and running on a treadmill. … LHP Nestor Cortes (rotator cuff) is expected to throw to hitters Sunday and then again at the Yankees' Tampa complex on July 13.


Orioles: LHP Cole Irvin (1-3, 6.32 ERA) is slated to start Friday as Baltimore opens a three-game series at Minnesota. Irvin is 1-1 with a 3.44 ERA in four starts and one relief appearance since returning from Triple-A Norfolk on June 10.

Yankees: LHP Carlos Rodón will make his New York debut in the opener of a three-game series against the visiting Chicago Cubs. Rodón, who signed a six-year deal worth $162 million in December, strained his left forearm in spring training and was slowed by a stiff back during his rehab.
