Watch Yankees' Aaron Judge Blast Mammoth 495-Foot Home Run Vs. Orioles

Posted June 12, 2017

They both gave up a home run to Judge.

The Yankees acquired German in a multi-player deal following the 2014 season.

Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer for third-place Baltimore, which dropped 41/2 games behind the Yankees. Aaron Judge contributed to the onslaught with a monster solo home run over the left field bleachers.

"No need", Judge said when asked if he watched it. You could tell us he doubled while blindfolded and we would believe you.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge, the most exciting player in Major League Baseball this season, continues to out-do himself.

Counting two games they lost in Washington - one of the games was made up Thursday night - the Orioles have lost five straight series away from Baltimore.

"Girardi on that at-bat: "(Montgomery) just stayed within himself, and I don't think he overthrew. Chapman is scheduled to pitch one inning on Tuesday with Class A Tampa and another at Double-A Trenton on Friday.

PITTSBURGH - Jordy Mercer hit a tying two-run triple in the eighth and John Jaso followed with a go-ahead double for Pittsburgh. The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams in NY and is 10-1 in the last 11 meetings overall.

"I was in such a hurry to get the breaking stuff going, it kind of snowballed real quick", Tillman said. "It knocks a lot of air out of your sails". He struck out eight and won his third straight decision. He allowed three runs - two earned - and three hits in 7 1/3 innings. He's allowed at least eight hits in 10 of his 14 starts this season.

"It really comes down to mechanics", Tanaka said. "It was bad execution".

Last Thursday, he hit a line-drive single to center field against the Red Sox that traveled 119.8 miles per hour. This, despite the propensity of pitchers, to develop career-threatening injuries before the ink is dry on the contracts they sign.

Castro homered leading off the second.

It certainly takes a good swing to reach that section, and it was a pleasant surprise for the Yankees that Hicks could hit one that far.

Oh hey! And Aaron Judge didn't stop there.

Facing a pitcher who struck him out with the bases loaded on April 30, Judge sent the ball soaring over the bleachers at 119 miles per hour off the bat and gave the Yankees an 8-3 lead.

Green exceeded his limit Sunday with no outs in the third inning, forcing Girardi to get creative earlier than he would have liked.

The Yankees designated LHP Tommy Layne for assignment following the game and will recall RHP Domingo Germán from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
