Aaron Judge Hits 495-foot Home Run at Yankee Stadium

Aaron Judge Hits 495-foot Home Run at Yankee Stadium”

However, with the Los Angeles Angels center fielder and defending American League MVP relegated to the bench as he recovers from thumb surgery, the locals apparently have found a new favorite.

Not only did that give Judge 21 home runs on the season - the most by a Yankees player under the age of 26 before All-Star Weekend since Roger Maris in 1960, according to ESPN - his first home run of the night was historic for other reasons. Would anyone have believed that the man Baseball America has bumped down its prospect list in consecutive off-seasons is the prohibitive favorite for rookie of the year?

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 the Cubs stopped the Rockies' seven-game winning streak. Aaron Judge singles to right field.

Statistically the longest home run of the season, Judge's blast was something no one who saw it will soon forget.

Judge's 22 homers are the third-most by a rookie in Yankees history. It just went out.

However, Yankees manager Joe Girardi is still doing everything he can to try to figure out the reason for Tanaka's erratic season so far. "We know what he's done is special".

Lately there has been much more bad than good. Through six innings, Judge had gone 3-for-3 with one double, one walk, one RBI and three runs. "So I allowed (Espinosa) to get to second base and Cameron came up with a (hit) and scored him".

Aaron Judge's bomb, which came after Aaron Hicks - who else? - ripped a double to left.

Dellin Betances recorded the final four outs for his sixth save, striking out the side in the ninth.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia curiously allowed closer Bud Norris to pitch to Judge with first base open, and the AL homers leader made him pay. "They had a lot of traffic early, he nearly got out of some stuff, but 4 2/3 innings and 90-something pitches, that's a lot of work, that's a heavy day".

"You understand that you're down, but you have to understand not to give anything away", Jones said. "He hit it a long way".

Dexter Fowler hit a three-run homer for St. Louis, and Adam Wainwright tossed five solid innings. His four hits tied his career high.

Meyer fanned nine batters and gave up one unearned run but still got stuck with a tough-luck loss against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Will the Angels upset the red-hot Yankees tonight when they take on Masahiro Tanaka tonight at 10:07PM ET? "If I know it's going over the fence, I'm just going to start jogging, just going around the bases and get back in the dugout". Castro started the scoring with a two-RBI single.

The 6-foot-9 Meyer struck out the 6-foot-7 Judge twice, but also yielded five singles and five walks while failing to get out of the fifth inning.

Chad Green started a "bullpen game" for the Yankees and pitched the first two-plus innings. The offensive numbers were mind-boggling - 18 hits, seven singles, six doubles, five homers - but perhaps the most impressive part was how productive the lineup was from top to bottom.

Angels: Reliever Cam Bedrosian will make a rehab appearance at Class A Inland Empire this week in his return from a groin injury that has kept him out for almost two weeks.

For Tuesday's game, the Yankees will be bringing out lefty CC Sabathia for the start.

The California native, playing in front of plenty of friends and family, including his adoptive parents, added to an MVP-caliber resume that grows by the day. Over his 70.2 innings and 6-4 record this year, Ramirez has a 4.33 ERA with 54 Ks and 15 BBs.
