Aaron Judge hits 496-foot HR, longest since tracking began


Hicks homered twice and rookie Jordan Montgomery pitched seven stellar innings to lead NY over the Baltimore Orioles 8-2 on Friday night.

The win lifts the Yankee record to 36-23 on the season, extending the AL East lead over the rival Boston Red Sox to three games. "I know the three days up here, the last four actually, have been frustrating, but let's get the hell out of NY, let's go to Chicago and redeem ourselves and just flip the script". We came into this series, I think 5-4 on the year on them, and obviously that changed.

Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer for third-place Baltimore, which dropped 41/2 games behind the Yankees. He has lost five straight starts during the worst stretch of his career, charged with 27 runs in 22 2/3 innings including 11 home runs. But it was a different story in the latest matchup between two promising 24-year-old pitchers. The right-hander allowed five runs in the first, and equaled a career high by walking six batters and didn't strike out any. Baltimore did collect two more hits in the inning, including one from former Met Ruben Tejada, but the lefty limited the damage.

"We're just not missing our pitch", Judge 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. He was ideal until walking Mark Trumbo to begin the fifth, and all of Severino's strikeouts came on swings. "He had a real nice breaking ball going".

Charges against catfish-thrower may have been too harsh, Pittsburgh mayor says
Charges against a man who threw a catfish on the ice during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final will be withdrawn. Three minutes later, Scott Wilson made it 3-1 Penguins , and 15 seconds later, Evgeni Malkin made it 4.


Gary Sanchez (450 feet) and Aaron Judge (495 feet) hit monster home runs to left field in the first and sixth innings, respectively.

Masahiro Tanaka's next scheduled start has been pushed back one day as the New York Yankees attempt to get their struggling ace back on track. "It was just a line drive". "He's been huge for us".

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. "I know we really needed some length out of me today to get us rolling and get us off to a good start, and that first inning, it just got away from me". Last time he faced the Angels (in 2016), he gave up a run to Kole Calhoun but still got the win.

Aaron Judge then walked and scored from first on Matt Holliday's double off the left- centre fence. After a single and two walks loaded the bases with one out, Sandy Leon struck out. New York's pitching has allowed three runs in the last three games since Tuesday and opponents are hitless in the last 42 at-bats with runners in scoring position against them since May 31. That's the longest streak in the majors since St. Louis went nine games in August 2007.

The pitcher came over from Japan and signed a $155 million, seven-year contract with the Yankees in January 2014.

Durant vindicates decision to join Warriors
Led by LeBron James' game-high 41 points, the Cavaliers hung within 108-102 with 8:29 to play on a 3-pointer by Kyle Korver . Durant entered the NBA Finals as an eight-time All-Star, an All-Star Game MVP and an NBA MVP.


For the fifth-straight day, the Yankees scored at least eight runs. Tillman would then give way to Stefan Crichton.

Orioles third. J.J. Hardy doubles to deep left field. Manager Buck Showalter said Machado took swings via tee and toss and fielded ground balls before the game. Yankees 5, Orioles 3. Now, at the age of 25, Judge is professional baseball outfielder in the MLB for the New York Yankees. 1B Greg Bird (bruised right ankle) went 0 for 5 in his second game for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since his rehab assignment was moved from Class A Tampa.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia chose to pitch to him even though first base was open, and Norris fell behind 2-and-0. Tillman is 0-3 in five outings since winning his season debut May 7 against the Chicago White Sox.

ATLANTA - Seth Lugo allowed just one run in seven innings and NY defeated Atlanta to take three of the four games in the series.
