The Yankees have hit a bit of a snag on the field, but apparently Gary Sanchez came ready for the Orioles with two piss missile homers today.
Both were BOMBS:

Sanchez was moved down to the nine spot in the lineup, which is seemingly making a world of a difference in how he’s hitting. Seeing plenty fastballs with DJ LeMahieu slotted behind him just might lengthen Gary Sanchez’s stay in the Bronx. I’m not taking a guess here either, but I’m just stating the obvious. Teams want a catcher that goes yard, A LOT.
That’s now 20 homers on the season, helping the former All-Star catcher draw some love from the fans, who even I’ll admit can be a bit unforgiving. However, the Yankees are still losing to Baltimore 8-7 in the bottom half of the eighth — at least they know Gary Sanchez isn’t to blame.
