The home run was Torres' second of the game and third of the day, as he also hit one in the Yankees’ 8-5 win over Baltimore in the opener of their doubleheader.

Torres now has 13 home runs against the Orioles this season, which is the most any player has recorded against a single opponent in the divisional era, according to MLB Stats. He’s one shy of the record of 14 set by Lou Gehrig against Cleveland in 1936.

Torres also became the youngest American League player ever to have six multi home-run games in a single season.

Five of those have come against the Orioles.

"We're making him look like a first-ballot Hall of Famer," Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said after the game, via MLB.com.
