Aaron Judge Crushes 495-foot Homer in Yankees' Win


New York Yankees' Aaron Judge, center, celebrates his two-run home run with teammates in the dugout during the eighth inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Angels, Monday, June 12, 2017, in Anaheim, Calif.

He hit another in the seventh that was, in its own way, awesome: a laser that seemed to defy gravity all the way until it went over the fence in right center 401 feet away.

"Winning those first two games and trying to take a shot at those two guys, it's a challenge", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

The go-ahead run was at second base as Aaron Judge strolled to the plate in Monday night's eighth inning, in a tie game.

You could see it in his mannerisms as he stood in right field.

Judge, the reigning AL Player of the Week after recording a.500/.600/1.000 slash line with three homers, six RBIs and 10 runs in six games last week against the Red Sox and Orioles, finished the night 2-for-4 with a walk. However, despite the fact they posted a crooked number, the first inning rally was highlighted by Aaron Judge and his 19th home run season. Orioles C Welington Castillo went 0 for 3 in a rehab game for Double-A Bowie at Trenton and is expected to be activated Saturday. "I know that's super-cliché, but when you've got 162 games, flipping the script is something that applies". He is laying off pitches outside the strike zone and crushing anything inside the zone. This one is just kinda embarrassing. "Our people determined that he's not ready to come back yet", manager Joe Girardi said. He's really good. Like, historically good. He's a big part of it. Baltimore right-hander Kevin Gausman (3-5) was tagged for seven runs and eight hits in 3 1/3 innings. Dellin Betances got the final four outs for his sixth save. Scioscia said he hoped Norris would pitch cautiously around Judge, knowing he had a base open. "You have to have a positive outlook moving forward", Tanaka said. "He hit it a long way".

The Yankees are 4-1 in their last five during game two of a series, and 10-4 in their last 14 Tuesday games.

Montgomery has been a solid addition to the Yankees rotation and snapped a four-start winless streak by holding the Toronto Blue Jays scoreless on three hits in six innings on Saturday. After his recent run of ugly defeats, Tanaka's start was pushed back one day to the road trip opener, partly so he could face the Angels' unintimidating lineup.

Trump mocks Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to prove 'Russian Collusion'
Schiff also said Sunday that he believes there is some evidence of collusion between the Trump team and the Kremlin. Rubio called on Trump and the administration to let the investigation go forward and not cast aspersions.

"It feels really good to be able to get off to a hot start, and I want to keep it going", Hicks said.

The Red Sox broke a sixth-inning tie by scoring two unearned runs on a throwing error by catcher Francisco Pena, and Benintendi's second homer made it 6-3 in the seventh.

Dustin McGowan (4-0) earned the win in relief of shaky starter Vance Worley.

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. How about back to back starts of 6 innings and only 1 run allowed? Sanchez followed with his 10th homer.

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.

Masahiro Tanaka didn't get the win, but stopped his streak of five straight losses after a shaky start.

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

The Orioles, playing without injured All-Star third baseman Manny Machado (strained left wrist) for the fourth straight game, chased NY starter Chad Green in the third with back-to-back doubles that made it 5-1.
