Remembering Way back in May when Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres recorded his fourth multi-homer game against the Orioles of just this season ? Remember how Torres became just the fourth player in MLB history to record four multi-homer games against one team in one season? Gary Thorne What drives to the uttermost depths of despair that day?
My friends, the onslaught continues. The Yankees and Orioles played a day-night doubleheader Monday in New York, which meant Torres was salivating like a hungry lion crawling up on an exhausted and baby helpless antelope, alone on the Serengeti. Orioles pitchers, helpless under the best of circumstances, were just completely doomed.
Torres socked a three-run jack in the day's game, which the Yankees won 8-5. Torres needed a more spectacular showing in the night. fifth multi-homer game of the season just against the Orioles, in 1
Torres has now hit 13 home runs against the Orioles this season, putting him in a five-way tie with some heavy hitters-Hall of Famers Roger Maris and Jimmie Foxx, legendary slugger Joe Adcock, and 1952 NL MVP and home run champion Hank Sauer-for the second-most ever hit against a single opponent in MLB history. Lou Gehrig, with 14 against the Cleveland in 1936, is within striking distance. The Yankees wrap up their season series with the Orioles tomorrow and Wednesday; Torres is going, he should have no trouble whatsoever catching and surpassing the all-time mark. Hell, he might get to 20.
If Torres gets the record, Thorne may not survive. Paul O'Neill bum-rushed the O's broadcast booth to gloat over Torres's dominance:
 A full half of Torres's 26 dingers on the season have come against the Orioles. This is violence! Assault and battery! O'Neill is lucky Thorne did not bite his hand off.
