Watch Jackie Bradley Jr. rob Aaron Judge of his 31st home run

"It actually made the hair stand up on my arms".

He offered the latest reminder of that Sunday night when he made a jaw-dropping leaping catch to rob New York Yankees phenom Aaron Judge of a home run.

"Once I saw him start timing it, I figured he had a chance to catch it". But as we know, in baseball you're only as good as your last game.

MLB.com's Statcast measured the ball struck by Judge, who leads all of baseball with 30 home runs this season, at an exit velocity of 107.5 miles per hour and a launch angle of 32 degrees.

The Yankees rookie rocketed a shot to straightaway center that seemed bound for a two-run homer. He stepped up to the plate with one out and Gary Sanchez on first base. The ball was easily going to clear the wall. Only problem? Jackie Bradley Jr. was in center field and he cares not for home run gods. "Jackie's been making plays like that for a long time".

With a runner on and the Yankees down by three runs in the eighth inning, Judge drove a 95 miles per hour fastball from David Price to the deepest corner of Fenway. Cutting deeper into the Red Sox's lead with a win in the nightcap would have certainly been preferred, but after Friday's debacle a split isn't the worst scenario.

"I don't really have a ranking system", Bradley said.

"Sometimes you're not the guy getting a hit".

Price (5-2) allowed seven hits, walked none and struck out eight.

But after a chat with catcher Austin Romine about using more breaking pitches - specifically the slider - Chapman said: "Today we did that and it was good today..."

Masahiro Tanaka was significantly better than the previous outing when he lasted 4 ¹/₃ innings against the Brewers on July 9 at Yankee Stadium. "I'm fresh and ready to go", Judge said. "Just got to regroup and try to get them in the next inning, the next batter".

Betts' two-out homer in the third inning snapped a stretch of 24 consecutive scoreless innings for Boston.

CC Sabathia (8-3) tossed six scoreless innings to outduel Boston starter Rick Porcello (4-12). The hit was Dustin Pedroia's RBI single in the sixth, which scored Betts, who three innings earlier had ended the team's scoring drought with his 17th homer of the year. "But I just hit it to the wrong part of the part against the wrong center fielder". Between them, Sale, Price and Rick Porcello were charged with just one earned run the past three games, and Eduardo Rodriguez is returning from the disabled list tonight.

"Highlight-reel catch against probably the most notarized power guy in the game, and timely. He came up big".

The Yankees didn't lose ground to the Red Sox but Judge wanted to pull closer.

The Red Sox stranded 10 runners and went 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position in the opener.

David Price pitched a gem in the second game of a double header and the finale of a four-game series in which the Yankees led two games to one.
