Los Angeles Angels vs. New York Yankees

Through six innings, Judge had gone 3-for-3 with one double, one walk, one RBI and three runs. Brett Gardner to third.

"That's scary, man. That's the scariest thing I've ever seen", Ortiz said of Judge.

Judge highlighted his first career four-hit game and third career multi-homer game when he sent a 1-1 slider from Logan Verrett well over the left-center-field fence. That's right - the Yankees rookie sensation now has a Triple Crown. The longest was a 504-foot shot by the Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton in 2016.

Judge took the pitch DEEP, and I mean deep, to left center field - clearing the visiting bullpen AND the bleachers. "That's the word - incredible".

Earlier in the season, Hicks reportedly took some reps at first base, but with Greg Bird nearing his return from the DL, manager Joe Girardi will probably give Bird much more time to figure out his swing before making a change.

Judge immediately heard "MVP!" chants from the crowd - many of whom were cheering for the Bombers - following his MLB-leading 22nd homer of the year.

The Yankees took a 3-1 lead on a trio of two-out RBI singles, by Didi Gregorius (four hits) in the third and fifth innings and Headley in the seventh. "He hits it so hard - I'd like to know what it feels like". I'm not sure anyone else would have been able to single.

Judge's homer was his major league-leading 22nd, and the Yankees" 103rd of "07, also tops in baseball. (Now he's at.347, but he trails the Mariners' Nelson Cruz in RBIs, 50-49.) Judge entered the night ranked second in the big leagues in OBP (.450), slugging (.718) and OPS (1.168). One player, in particular though, is managing to rise to heights even above the rest of his teammates.

"You certainly don't go into it with rose-colored glasses or blinders", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "They got a nice ballclub over there, so we're going to have to really fight for it".

Judge's big day was only part of a huge series for the Yankees at the plate. On April 28, 2017, he had his first multi-home run game against the Baltimore Orioles. It was his longest homer, and the catcher became the sixth Yankee to reach double digits in long balls.

Judge also didn't get down on reliever Tyler Clippard for following starter Masahiro Tanaka into the game and immediately giving up an RBI double that wiped out the Yankees' two-run lead. This season, those numbers are significantly different and the Yankees look to add to their totals of 93 homers and 323 runs Saturday night when they continue a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

New York Yankees' Aaron Judge watches his seventh-inning, two-run, home run in a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles in New York, Sunday, June 11, 2017. A two-seam fastball is a pitch that Tillman's rarely used throughout his career, but this season, Tillman has installed the two-seamer in his arsenal which has resulted in nearly no success. "I mean, I got the best vantage point, and what I see is they're not missing", Baltimore center field Adam Jones said. Last year, Sanchez tied a record by hitting 20 homers in his first 51 Major League Baseball games.

Meyer struck out Judge in each of his first two at-bats, keeping him off balance and off base, before walking him in the fifth inning. Luis Avilan (1-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the win, and Kenley Jansen got three outs for his 200th career save. But he followed that up by permitting seven runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 10-4 loss at Baltimore on May 31.

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.
