BALTIMORE — Aaron Judge hit two more home runs against Baltimore, Gio Urshela had a go-ahead, pinch-hit shot and the New York Yankees overcame a spate of injuries to beat the Orioles 5-4.

Judge is now 10 for 19 with five home runs facing the Orioles this season. He has 13 career multihomer games, five of them against Baltimore.

The Yankees were missing several key players, including shortstop Gleyber Torres, who tested positive for COVID-19.

Center fielder Aaron Hicks was out with an injured left wrist and slugger Giancarlo Stanton was a late scratch with left quad tightness.

Yankees starter Corey Kluber allowed four runs and seven hits with six strikeouts over six innings.
