Judge, Yankees blast Orioles, 16-3

New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge (99) hits a home run to left center field during the sixth inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

The New York Yankees have a long and storied history of super stars smashing home runs, but this year's version of the Bronx Bombers may become the best the franchise has ever seen. Mantle also had two homers in his 4-for-4 game. In case you were wondering, the Red Sox didn't have a single player with 10 homers through Friday. It was 12 pitches into the game, and the Yankees already led 5-0. "He's gotten some big hits, playing good defense, whether he's in center or left".

When Aaron Judge hit it, he simply put his head down and ran the bases. "I feel good about being around the guys".

Micahel Pineda has been strong with a 3.39 ERA and 1.13 WHIP so far this year.

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

It is worth noting, though, that Chad Green threw 3 1/3 innings of flawless relief behind Tanaka on Tuesday, while two Triple-A options on the 40-man roster, Luis Cessa and Bryan Mitchell, are Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's scheduled starters tonight and tomorrow, and Sunday's is heralded righty Chance Adams.

Judge is now leading the American League with 21 home runs, 41 RBIs, 4.1 wins above replacement and a.344 batting average on the season.

The biggest story in NY, and perhaps the entire league, is towering right fielder Aaron Judge and his MVP caliber performance through the first 60 games.

-And, as the last word, here is Girardi's answer to the only question asked today about a subject other than Tanaka or Chapman - whether or not he takes any stock in Aaron Judge's exit velocity, specifically regarding the Major League Baseball season-high 119 miles per hour he registered last night: "I probably don't look at is as closely as everyone else". This is what they came to see in person, after all.

What was the significance of his 13th home run hit off Marcus Stroman?

Amidst all the fireworks, it was easy to forget Luis Severino delivering yet another ace-like performance. He took a 2-0 lead into the sixth inning before allowing a two-run homer by Justin Smoak. Chapman said he expects a one-game minor league rehab assignment to follow, and he'll probably rejoin the Yankees on the West Coast in about a week. We'll obviously get to our daily segment "What Judge did" in a moment, but first we need to talk about Sir Didi Gregorius. First, the team perspective.

Judge hit one of five homers on a night when the Yankees set season highs in runs and hits (18) and tied a season best by hitting five homers for the third time this season. Jordan Lyles (0-2) gave up both homers after Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela fell short of becoming the first nine-game victor in the National League. The 1956 team also did it July 27-30.

"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 victory completed a sweep of the three-game series for the Cardinals and extended the Phillies' losing streak to five games.

Gausman has permitted at least eight hits in five straight starts - not the ideal recipe to slow New York's hard-thumping lineup. The others were in 2007, 1939, 1938 and 1937. So you're telling me there's a chance? Aaron Judge contributed to the onslaught with a monster solo home run over the left field bleachers. Their offense is now second-best in the AL (5.5 runs per game), while they also rank second in batting average (.268), third in home runs (90) and fourth in stolen bases (36).
