NEW YORK (AP) With each day, with every swing, this run by Gary Sanchez becomes even more remarkable.

The New York Yankees rookie hit a home run for the third straight game Saturday, highlighting a 13-5 rout over the Baltimore Orioles.

Sanchez hit a drive that bounced off the top of the right-center field wall and over. He reached 11 career home runs faster than anyone in major league history - 23 games, including two hitless games last year.
