The Yankees swept their doubleheader with the Orioles on Monday, thanks to an 11-8 victory in game two. It's the fifth time in six tries that the Bombers have won both games of a twin bill. >> Box Score

Six takeaways from Monday's game two...

1) When Orioles fans fall asleep at night, they're likely to be haunted by nightmares of Gleyber Torres. After going deep in game one, the infielder launched a pair of three-run home runs in game two and now has a staggering 13 home runs against Baltimore this season. Only Lou Gehrig had more against an opponent in one season, when the Iron Horse hit 14 homers against the Indians in 1936. Torres has tortured the Orioles so much that, with his team trailing by five and runners on first and second with two outs in the eighth, manager Brandon Hyde opted to intentionally walk him.

Yankees notes

The Yanks appointed infielder Breyvic Valera as their 26th man ahead of Monday's doubleheader. Valera has appeared in nine games for the Yankees with season and is batting .192 with three RBI in the majors this year. ... The Yankees have beat up the O's as of late.

The Yankees have now won 10 out of the last 11 games that Tanaka starts, dating back to June 11 of this season. Tanaka bounced back in a big way after giving up five earned runs and 10 hits in 5.1 innings of work in his last start on August 5 against the Orioles.

As the rallying cry of the 2019 Yankees season, the 'next man up' rotation has produced in the absence of Miguel Andujar. The 27-year-old Gio Urshela hasn't just produced, he's excelled. In the span of a couple months, he has transformed from a forgotten third basemen to a true two-way talent. 

His performance has been such a surprise, thus raising the essential question - could Andujar's future in New York be in jeopardy?

It's a fascinating thought to ponder, and surely a decision that the Yankees will eventually have to make. Andujar is due back before the 2020 season, putting him in position to reclaim his starting role. But can we assume that he will be given the starting job right away? It seems unlikely. Recent history has shown that the Yankees prefer to let guys battle it out through spring training.

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Finally, a Yankees starter settled things down long enough for the offense to find a bit of its lost magic. Domingo German struck out nine batters in 5.1 innings, while allowing three runs on four hits and one walk. German, who was crushed by the Twins in his last outing, was great for much of the night, with Andrew Benintendi's home run being the lone mistake of the night.

Yankees notes

American League batting average leader DJ LeMahieu remains out of the lineup for the Yankeees, suffering from what the team is calling an "acute" groin strain... Gio Urshela went a perfect 4-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's loss and has posted a .720 slugging percentage over his last seven games...

The Yankees (62-33, 8 GA in AL East) are hosting the Colorado Rockies (46-50, 16.5 GB in NL West) on Friday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.  

Yankees notes

Gio Urshela continues to make an impact in the Yankee lineup. His 3-for-4, three-RBI performance in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader was the catalyst for a Yankee win... Luke Voit supplied the power in Game 2, as the slugging first baseman launched his 18th homer of the season off of Rays pitcher Charlie Morton. Voit has already surpassed his previous career highs in home runs, RBIs and doubles... DJ LeMahieu will face the Rockies for the first time since joining the Yankees this season. The infielder, who spent seven seasons with Colorado, was a two-time All-Star, a three-time Gold Glove Award-winner and won the batting title in 2016. Aaron Boone will not be in the dugout tonight while he serves a one-game suspension following his ejection in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader.
