Aaron Judge demolishes 495-foot homer over the Yankee Stadium bleachers

Aaron Judge demolishes 495-foot homer over the Yankee Stadium bleachers”

The Orioles (31-29) had a chance to cut into New York's lead in a weekend series between the two teams in the Bronx, but instead fell in two straight games to the Yankees on June 9-10. The righty has a 6.55 ERA overall in 12 starts and an 8.50 ERA in seven starts since his complete game shutout in Boston April 27, but told the media that he's working on figuring out why he has been so inconsistent this season. Judge added another dinger in the seventh, an opposite-field line drive. One thing they could do is win tonight. I've got to know that with (Young) at second base, I probably have no shot of throwing him out at home.

"I thought they might pitch around him because he's been swinging the bat so well", Girardi said, likely echoing many Angels fans' thoughts. He leads the American League in home runs, RBIs (47) and batting average (.344).

Judge, who grew up in Linden, Calif. - almost 400 miles north of Anaheim - blasted a tie-breaking, two-run homer to right field that traveled 438 feet with one out in the eighth inning, enabling the Yankees to beat the Angels 5-3 and increase their winning streak to six on Monday night at Angel Stadium.

NOTES: Baltimore 3B Manny Machado missed his fourth consecutive game with a sore left wrist.

But Headley's fielding error on an Eric Young Jr. grounder opened the way to two unearned runs in the Angels' seventh.

Of course, like the rest of us, they mess up sometimes. "He had a real nice breaking ball going". That was catcher Gary Sanchez, who set baseball alight with 20 homers in 53 games last season.

The latter pitcher is Masahiro Tanaka, and specifically the news that he his next scheduled start has been pushed back from Sunday's series finale with Baltimore to Monday's road trip opener in Anaheim.

Bundy beat Montgomery 3-2 on May 29 in Baltimore, where the Orioles took two of three from NY. Clippard continued to be a bit shaky on the mound but he managed to get through it. Severino is coming off a tough no-decision Sunday in Toronto.

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.

First time ever the Yankees have scored at least eight runs and hit multiple homers in five straight games.

Tanaka was charged with one earned run on four hits over 6.2 innings, with two walks and eight strikeouts. He's 2-1 against them with a 4.43 ERA over five games (three starts).

The Orioles will face Jordan Montgomery, who hasn't looked particularly sharp this season.

Chad Green started a "bullpen game" for the Yankees and pitched the first two-plus innings.

The 28-year-old Tanaka has lost a career-worst five straight outings and is 5-6 with a 6.55 ERA in 12 starts this season.

He walked Albert Pujols on four pitches after Calhoun's homer but retired 15 of the next 16 hitters he faced. Chris Tillman, still looking for a good outing, starts for the O's. "If the MVP were voted on today, he'd win that, too", Yankees OF Brett Gardner told mlb.com. However, with just a few weeks left before the 4th of July creeps in and the official dog days of summer are here, Colorado and NY - along with the Houston Astros - are proving that they are going to be around for the duration of the season. Baltimore is hoping Saturday goes as well as Tillman's last start in NY. It was also his 30th home run in the big leagues, a milestone that only three other players in major-league history reached as quickly as Sanchez did (in his 90th game): Rudy York, Mark McGwire and Jose Abreu.
