Judge's homer, his 20th of the season, was hit to left center in the bottom of the sixth inning. "It really is unbelievable and it shows you the support Yankee fans give you", said Joe Girardi to MLB.com's Barry Bloom. Earlier this year, Judge became the first right-handed batter to hit 13 home runs in his team's first 26 games since Willie Mays.

ATLANTA - Steven Matz pitched seven impressive innings in his season debut, Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer and NY beat Atlanta to get the sweep. Tampa Bay went ahead 5-4 when Corey Dickerson hit a sacrifice fly on the next pitch. 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.

Boston's Chris Sale outlasted Detroit's Justin Verlander to win his seventh straight decision.

So last night meant more than just putting up 16 runs on one of the better teams in the league. 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. "You never know what's going to happen". Would anyone have believed that the man Baseball America has bumped down its prospect list in consecutive off-seasons is the prohibitive favorite for rookie of the year?

"I was getting ready to hit", he said. He's really good. Like, historically good. "The winning is a big part of it".

3 runs, 4 hits, 0 errors, 1 left on. Cameron Maybin then knotted the score with an RBI double off Tyler Clippard.

Aaron Judge's bomb, which came after Aaron Hicks - who else? - ripped a double to left. Dellin Betances would be asked to get a four-out save and get a four-out save he did.

Judge entered the game leading the AL in the Triple Crown categories, hitting.344 with 21 homers and 47 RBIs. Scioscia said he hoped Norris would pitch cautiously around Judge, knowing he had a base open.

"You understand that you're down, but you have to understand not to give anything away", Jones said.

CARDINALS 3, PHILLIES 2: Aledmys Diaz hit a solo home run, Michael Wacha pitched six strong innings and host St. Louis snapped a seven-game losing streak. Holliday and Judge each had three of New York's 18 hits and scored three times. His Yankees were on the road, facing the Angels in Judge's home state, where he had plenty of fans waiting to cheer him on. "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".

RANGERS 5, NATIONALS 2: Andrew Cashner quieted the National League's top-hitting lineup, Jonathan Lucroy and Rougned Odor homered, and Texas won at Washington.

On a sweltering Sunday, Judge attacked a slider from Logan Verrett and hammered it a whopping 495 feet at Yankee Stadium.

Russell hit his fourth home run to give the Cubs the lead and help them avoid a four-game sweep.

Angels: Reliever Cam Bedrosian will make a rehab appearance at Class A Inland Empire this week in his return from a groin injury that has kept him out for almost two weeks.

And then came more heroics. homer No. 22, one that was extra special because his parents, both retired teachers, were in the stands after making a trip to Anaheim from Northern California.

Angels 12, Astros 6: Albert Pujols homered in the first inning, and Eric Young Jr. had a career-high four RBIs, helping Los Angeles rally for the win. The 6-foot-9 right-hander pitched well in his last two starts, though he didn't get a win in either.
