Game 29. Judge walks off Blue Jays, 6-5.

Aaron Judge hit a 3-run HR with one out in the bottom of the ninth to defeat Toronto Tuesday night, 6-5.

George Springer led off the game by homering off of Yankees’ starter Luis Severino. Toronto got two more runs off of Severino in the second inning.

The Yanks didn’t get a hit until the bottom of the sixth. Down 3-0, D.J. LeMahieu led off the inning with a double, and Judge reached on an infield single. After Anthony Rizzo flied out to moved D.J. to third, Giancarlo Stanton homered (7) to tie the game.

After that HR, Josh Donaldson was hit by a pitch, and Toronto pitcher Yimi Garcia and pitching coach Pete Walker were both ejected. Later in the game, Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo was also ejected.

Toronto got two runs in the top of the eighth to go up 5-3 and the Yanks went into the bottom of the ninth looking up at that score.

With one out in the bottom of the ninth, both Jose Trevino and LeMahieu drew walks. Judge then crushed his tenth HR of the season, a 450 ft. shot, to win the game.

The Yanks are now 21-8, four games up on Tampa Bay and five up on Toronto. The offense is still not clicking, as they are hitting .237. But that .237 is still good for 4th in the AL. They are 2nd in HR, 3rd in OBP, 2nd in Slugging, 2nd in OPS and the OPS+ is 116. The pitching has been carrying them. The ERA of 2.59 is best in the AL, and the ERA+ is 142. (100 is average).

Judge 2 hits, 3 RBI. GW 3-run HR (10) Leads MLB in HR.
Stanton 2 hits, 3 RBI. 3-run HR (7).

Severino 4 2/3 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 2 W, 8 K. Gave up 1 HR. 4.08
