The New York Yankees took their long-ball show on the road in a 10-5 win against the Texas Rangers on Monday.
New York hit five home runs to cruise past the Rangers in MLB action in Arlington.
Rookie sensation Gleyber Torres bashed two home runs (six), while knocking in three runs.
Aaron Judge, Neil Walker and Aaron Hicks also went deep for the Yankees.
All-Star Judge collected two hits to raise his average to .286 while snapping his four-game hitless streak.
Ageless Bartolo Colon started for the Rangers, but was chased after allowing six runs off eight hits in 5.3 innings. Despite the rough outing, the 44-year-old still has a 3.51 ERA this season.
With the win, the Yankees (31-13) moved a half-game ahead of the Boston Red Sox for the American League (AL) East lead and the best overall record in baseball.
CAIN LEADS BREWERS PAST D-BACKS
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain went two for four with two runs scored and a solo home run (six) in a 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Cain, now batting .276 this season, helped Milwaukee improve to 29-19 this season.
St Louis Cardinals sluggers Matt Carpenter and Marcell Ozuna have been off to horrendous starts this season, but got back on track in Monday's 6-0 rout of the Kansas City Royals. Carpenter went three for four with two runs scored and a home run (four), while Ozuna collected two hits with two runs scored, an RBI and a walk.
The Cardinals also got some good pitching from starter Miles Mikolas, who tossed a complete-game shutout, with nine strikeouts.
ACUNA, BRAVES SHOW GROWING PAINS
The young Atlanta Braves are sweeping MLB this season with exciting young players producing exciting finishes, but Ronald Acuna Jr. showed some growing pains during a 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Acuna went 0 for four, lowering his average to .253.
NATS YOUNGSTER SOTO HOMERS
Juan Soto hit a home run in his second MLB at bat. The 19-year-old Washington Nationals star become the first teenager to hit a home run since Bryce Harper in 2012.

INDIANS AT CUBS
Trevor Bauer will face Tyler Chatwood (3-3, 3.14 ERA), who has quietly been the Chicago Cubs' most consistent pitcher. The Cleveland Indians remain in control of the struggling AL Central, while the Cubs are locked in a four-way dogfight for the National League (NL) Central. This series has World Series potential, but both teams need work in key areas.
