See ya!! With the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles tied at two a piece in the bottom of the second, the Yanks needed an offensive spark to get the hitting party going. Insert Cameron Maybin, who was well overdue for a home run this season.

That homer marks Maybin's first home run this season and his first in Yankee pinstripes.
With the absurd amount of injuries that New York's dealt with this season, they needed someone to step up. Hopefully, this is the start of a hot streak for Maybin.
In 37 at-bats this season, Maybin has a .351 slugging percentage and a .774 OPS. He's been solid so far, but he's just struggled to hit dingers.
Following the smash, however, Renato Nunez of the O's hit a blast of his own, knotting the game up once more. Enter Gleyber Torres with his second of the game, waiting on a breaker.

Who will get the last word in the dinger department on this fine day?
