"It didn't start off too well with two Ks", Judge said.

"I was in such a hurry to get the breaking stuff going, it kind of snowballed real quick", Tillman said.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brian Dozier and Kennys Vargas hit home runs, leading Jose Berrios and Minnesota over San Francisco.

PITTSBURGH - Miami pounded out 18 hits, including a monster homer by Giancarlo Stanton and two by Tyler Moore, to beat Pittsburgh at PNC Park. "It's a good matchup", Trumbo said. Not once have I ever seen a ball travel that far. "That's the word - incredible". Yankees manager Joe Girardi was concerned enough to push Tanaka back a day in the rotation to give him an extra day of rest. His power is special.

Golfer Harman leads US Open going into final day
Harman, who had begun the day in a four-way tie for the lead, carded a five-under-par 67 which included six birdies and one bogey. And the prime beneficiary was Thomas, who catapulted up the leaderboard with his record-breaking nine-under-par 63.


After wowing his teammates, Judge then hit another in the seventh against Jimmy Yacobonis, who was making his major league debut.

Orioles: Wade Miley (2-3, 3.27) tries to halt Baltimore's four-game losing streak Monday night in Chicago as he takes the mound in the opener of a four-game set against the White Sox. I don't feel like [he's] picking on us. "Me and everybody else". The Nationals began the day leading the league in runs, homers, batting and slugging. "That's the one thing I'm the most frustrated about", Gausman said. The home run put Judge in the record books as the home run became the hardest-hit home run of the newly minted Statcast era. "He was untouchable after the first inning and I airmail a throw to the backstop and allowed the runner to get to second base", Judge said.

Judge's big day was only part of a huge series for the Yankees at the plate.

Judge hit two more home runs, including a drive almost 500 feet that cleared the distant bleachers at Yankee Stadium and sent NY romping past Baltimore 14-3 Sunday for its fifth straight win. He hit a solo shot off Dylan Bundy (6-5) into the "Judge's Chambers" section in right field to start the sixth and added a two-run drive into the second deck in right with two outs in the seventh off Edwin Jackson. Through play on Sunday, Baltimore is averaging just under two home runs per game.

'Go celebrate in Pakistan', Gambhir tells Kashmir's Mirwaiz
You will get better fireworks (Chinese?), Eid celebs there. "I can help u wid packing", Gambhir wrote on the micro-blogging site.


The Yankees are coming off a series win against Boston and look to get ahead of the Orioles in the first of their three-game set tonight at Yankee Stadium, but nearly all of the talk pregame was about two pitchers: one who is hurt, and one who isn't. He has lost his last three starts and was hit hard by the Yankees on May 30 in Baltimore, allowing five runs and seven hits - three homers - in 2 2/3 innings.

Matt Holliday hit a two-run single in the fourth inning, and Aaron Hicks hit a two-run double before Judge's second homer as the Yankees reached double digits in runs for the 11th time and the fifth time against the Orioles.

Verdict: Tough battle for JC with Sabathia getting the edge the way he's been pitching as of late.

As Yankees' twitter pointed out, check out the reactions from both James Kaprielian and Aaron Hicks.

CBI team at residence of Delhi minister Satyendra Jain
When Jain told the I-T department he wanted to confront the four persons, it allowed him to talk to one Babloo. Jain has been asking CBI to produce these two men before us but they have failed.


But instead of allowing his evening to collapse again under an avalanche of hits and runs, Tanaka's sharp splitter and slider reappeared and he retired 13 straight batters at one point, exciting the heavy pro-New York contingent of fans. In his last five starts, he's surrendered just four earned runs overall-and all five games were wins. Souza, who entered in a 1-for-24 slide, had three hits and came within a double of hitting for the cycle. Manager Buck Showalter said Machado took swings via tee and toss and fielded ground balls before the game. RHP Stefan Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk.
