Aaron Judge Crushes 495-foot Homer in Yankees' Win

Yankees first. Brett Gardner singles to center field. It only feels like it.

"Just when it looks like he's on the verge of getting over that hump and finding it, much like a lot of power pitchers, he just was not able to get back in that zone and make some pitches", Scioscia said. You could miss something epic.

Statcast estimated the blast at 495 feet - longest in Major League Baseball this season. It forced eyes wide, left jaws slacked and pushed hands high into the air.

It might not have been the annual Pinstripe Bowl, but the Yankees put up a football score in their 16-3 drubbing of the Baltimore Orioles Saturday night. Yankees manager Joe Girardi was concerned enough to push Tanaka back a day in the rotation to give him an extra day of rest.

Point is, while it's unlikely Judge - or anyone else, for that matter - is this good, every day he provides more evidence that he's for real. They both gave up a home run to Judge.

"No need", Judge said when asked if he watched it. Tampa Bay went ahead 5-4 when Corey Dickerson hit a sacrifice fly on the next pitch. They've now scored more than three runs in just three of ten June games. I still think he'll get there. That's not going to get you into the playoffs.

The Yankees carried a 3-1 lead into the seventh, but in the home half, the Angels tied it up. He leads all AL players in All-Star voting with over 1.2 million votes at last count.

Aaron Judge is a large person.Chris O'Meara/APAaron Judge has played fewer than 100 big league games and he is already creating MVP buzz as he leads the American League in all three triple crown categories.

And Judge's eight homers against the Orioles are the second most by a Yankees player against any opponent in one season since the divisional era began in 1969.

Judge is straddling a amusing sort of line right now, 58 games into his rookie season: To skeptical stat-reliant baseball bros like myself, he's right around the upper limits of when a performance stops looking like it could be a flash-in-the-pan small-sample-size dreamland and starts appearing real, but to anyone watching him on the regular this season, there's no need for much doubt. And his personality is bright and unassuming - he often replies to questions about himself with answers about the feats of his teammates. "That's incredible!" Also I am kind of mad because my having to write this recap meant I felt obligated to watch all of this game.

Judge is, as they say, the complete package.

In a yet another example of how different this team is compared to previous year, the Yankees have become the Blowout Kings of baseball in 2017. This week he has. He's actually performed better since being "demoted" from batting second in the order to sixth. He went 6.2 innings while allowing just one earned run (three total) on four hits.

So are we about to be looking at the next great baseball duo?

He was acquired in the trade that brought Nathan Eovaldi and Garrett Jones to NY in exchange for David Phelps and Martin Prado. Since the strike, only four players have slugged.700 in a season: Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds - with all the baggage they come with - and Larry Walker, who did it twice for the Rockies while Coors Field was at its Coors Fieldiest.

"Probably more me than them". Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig? "This series, tip your cap to the Yankees and let's get the hell out of here".
