Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees lock horns in the first of the three-game series tonight.
NY has crushed 98 bombs on the season, marking the most through 59 games in franchise history, per MLB Stat of the Day.
Judge is the first rookie in history to be the first player to reach 20 homers, according to Elias Sports Bureau. Both players are hitting over.300 and four regulars hold averages above.300, giving the Yankees a.269 team average. I've got to know that with (Young) at second base, I probably have no shot of throwing him out at home. While the middle inning guys don't typically get the glory that they deserve, this group is a large reason why the Yankees sport an AL-best 3.60 ERA.
New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge, the most exciting player in Major League Baseball this season, continues to out-do himself. He drove in the Yankees' first two runs with two-out, RBI singles in the third and fifth innings.
MACHADO IN CHICAGO? Manny Machado missed his fourth straight game with a strained left wrist, but Showalter indicated that it's possible the third baseman will return when the Orioles move to play the Chicago White Sox June 12.
As for Judge's teammates and anyone else, television commentators Michael Kay and Paul O'Neill said, "Oh my goodness" and "Wow", while Didi Gregorius watched while standing on top of a bench by the railing. "He's gonna hit balls places no one has ever hit them". "Guess what? There's a game tomorrow, and we've got to be ready for another team". "He had a real nice breaking ball going".
Dansby Swanson hustled an apparent single up the middle into a double with one out in the ninth inning and Ruiz singled to the opposite field on reliever Josh Edgin's first pitch to give the Braves the victory over NY.
Friday's game began as a pitchers duel but turned into an easy victory for the Yankees, who scored six runs in the final three innings after entering the sixth deadlocked at 2-2 with the Orioles. Despite the fact he is playing just as badly as Tanaka right now, he remains undefeated against the Yankees, and will be trying to keep the streak going. "Sevy's on the mound tomorrow and let it continue". He looked at two cutters that were off the plate, Norris threw a third on an 2-0 offering that caught way too much of it. What they do in the next 102 games will prove just how real they are. Severino is coming off a tough no-decision Sunday in Toronto.
Judge, who was 4-for-4 on Sunday, added a two-run homer in the seventh, an opposite-field line drive that was his majors-leading 21st homer of the season.
Tanaka is riding a career-high, five-game losing streak that continued when he allowed three homers and five runs in five innings during a 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday. How about back to back starts of 6 innings and only 1 run allowed? He's also won his last 5 starts in a row. He's gone 0-3 with a awful 7.90 ERA over his last three starts.
Tanaka departed with eight strikeouts and only two walks, but was charged with three runs (one earned).
He walked Albert Pujols on four pitches after Calhoun's homer but retired 15 of the next 16 hitters he faced. We offer our deepest sympathies to Chris Tillman. The Pirates, who had 13 hits, clawed back from a five-run deficit to come within 7-4.
Brett Gardner and Matt Holliday homered off Tillman, who had not allowed a homer until that point. Given how hot New York's bats are, there's more value in the over.
