Yankees Keep Rolling, Judge Keeps Smashing

Yankees Keep Rolling, Judge Keeps Smashing”

Aaron Hicks' solo homer in the sixth made it 3-2, and in the seventh, the Yankees took huge advantage of an Edwin Jackson error; his bad throw on a chopper to the mound allowed Headley to reach to open the inning, and with two outs, Hicks homered again - his second multi-HR of the year - and, after Aaron Judge walked, Matt Holliday chased him home with a booming double to put the game out of reach.

Starlin Castro homered and drove in five runs for the AL East leaders.

Blue Jays 4, Mariners 0: Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer in the first inning and finished with three RBIs, J.A. Happ rediscovered the form that made him a 20-game victor last season with six shutout innings, and Toronto beat Seattle.

New York Yankees' Aaron Judge hits a double during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles in New York, Sunday, June 11, 2017. The 24-year-old German has not appeared in a major league game.

Montgomery (4-4) set a career high with eight strikeouts in the longest outing of his 11 major league starts.

Young capped Los Angeles' six-run fifth inning with a tiebreaking three-run shot off Michael Feliz (2-1).

NY has some great power this year. Yankees manager Joe Girardi was concerned enough to push Tanaka back a day in the rotation to give him an extra day of rest.

"I felt like I did a better job of everything", Tanaka said through his translator. "I'm just trying to find my tempo and roll with it".

Girardi said of Tanaka, "He's seen Baltimore a lot already this year".

In any event, Price's little beef in the Bronx has added some spice to his next start Tuesday against the Phillies, where we'll see what, if any, impact all this has on the way the home crowd perceives and treats him.

NY has not announced a spot starter for Sunday.

Ruben Tejada, Seth Smith and Jonathan Schoop hit run-scoring doubles in the third for the Orioles, who are 6-14 in their past 20 games. The most ever by the Yankees was in 2012 (245), followed closely by the 2009 (244) and 2004 seasons (242).

In other news, injured closer Aroldis Chapman is scheduled to throw a simulated game Saturday morning at the team's complex in Tampa, Florida.

Cubs 7, Rockies 5: Addison Russell had a go-ahead home run for his first big contribution since an absence in the wake of a Major League Baseball investigation into domestic abuse allegations, and Chicago stopped Colorado's seven-game winning streak.

"It feels really good to be able to get off to a hot start, and I want to keep it going", Hicks said. "I wasn't sure what was going to happen, but he got a pitch and he crushed it". He has been on the DL since May 14 with rotator cuff inflammation. At 31-30, they're one game over.500 for the first time since Opening Day. "No pain at all".

SAN DIEGO - Lorenzo Cain hit two homers, including a grand slam that capped a nine-run rally in the eighth inning that sent Kansas City over San Diego.

If Price, whose recent return is merely one reason the Red Sox are starting to look more like the viable World Series contender they were projected to be, had specific beefs with specific reporters, there are ways to handle that sort of thing privately, as opposed to screaming F-bombs within earshot of a postgame manager's media session.

"I really had to kind of refocus after that and not let my emotions get the best of me", Sale said. "I'm not giving out any details, but I'm working on it". Kaprielian is recovering from Tommy John surgery and is two months away from starting a throwing program.

In a yet another example of how different this team is compared to a year ago, the Yankees have become the Blowout Kings of baseball in 2017. On the 3-2 pitch to Castro, Meyer thought he had strike three, but plate umpire Tony Randazzo disagreed.
