Jose Trevino blasted a three-run homer and Luis Severino allowed one run on one hit over six innings to lead the New York Yankees to a 6-2 victory over the host Baltimore Orioles to open a four-game series on Monday.

After the Yankees took a 1-0 lead on Giancarlo Stanton's double that scored Anthony Rizzo in the third inning, Trevino provided the big blow an inning later.

Gleyber Torres singled to left to open the fourth. Joey Gallo then struck out before Torres took second on Isiah Kiner-Falefa's infield single to shortstop.

Two pitches later, Trevino drilled rookie right-hander Kyle Bradish's fastball off the right-field foul pole to clear the bases and extend the lead to 4-0.

The Orioles pulled to within 4-1 on the first of Anthony Santander's two solo home runs, as he hit one to right field as a left-handed hitter in the fourth before clearing the left-field fence as a right-handed hitter in the ninth.

The Orioles' other hit was a single by Rougned Odor in the seventh inning.

Josh Donaldson and Rizzo hit back-to-back solo homers in the ninth inning.

Severino (3-0) had seven strikeouts against just two walks to beat the Orioles for the second time this season. He allowed four earned runs on three hits to go along with five strikeouts and two walks in six innings, picking up the win in the Yankees' 12-8 victory on April 26.

Right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga held the Orioles scoreless in the seventh and Chad Green took care of the eighth before turning it over to Aroldis Chapman, who closed it out in the ninth.

Bradish, making just the fourth start of his career, dropped to 1-2 after allowing four earned runs on eight hits with six strikeouts and three walks in 4 1/3 innings before being relieved by Keegan Akin.

Akin allowed just one hit to go along with three strikeouts and a walk over 3 2/3 innings.

Donaldson had a game-high three hits, while Torres had two hits and two walks and Trevino had two hits for the Yankees.
