The Yankees Double-A Trenton ballclub, unlike the team in the Bronx, relies heavily on the use of video to make themselves better individually. They would need a four-game sweep in September to accomplish that.
WASHINGTON - Robinson Chirinos hit a three-run homer in the 11th that sent the Rangers to victory. First, on Saturday, Judge crushed a first inning Chris Tillman fastball inside the left field foul pole for a home run. Over two seasons, he has 30 homers in 88 games.
Jacoby Ellsbury is with Trenton but there is no timetable as to when the center fielder will resume baseball activities. "I'm happy to get the results I got today". His 495-foot home run on Sunday is now tied for the second farthest-hit home run ball of the Statcast era.
"You understand that you're down, but you have to understand not to give anything away", Jones said. The hardest thing to do is to go in there and stick your nose in there and have a good at-bat.
It's not just one or two players struggling for the O's; it's practically the entire team, both pitchers and hitters.
The Yankees have long pined after Bryce Harper and have been rumored to be willing to pay dearly to get him. "They knew exactly what they had, and he and (catcher Austin) Romine executed a nice game plan together". They're 10-20 on the road.
"It's incredible", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "That's kind of what you do with young players; you want to see them clear hurdles, and he continues to do that", Girardi added.
NIGHTMARE CONTINUES FOR GAUSMAN: In an terrible season, Kevin Gausman engineered another subpar start. During those five games Sanchez hit.429 (9-for-21) with four homers and 13 RBIs.
"It was just unacceptable on my part". It was Norris's first real misstep in a month. I tried to make some pitches to minimize.
CLEVELAND - David Holmberg allowed two runs in five innings for his first win in two years and Chicago defeated Cleveland.
NY has crushed 98 bombs on the season, marking the most through 59 games in franchise history, per MLB Stat of the Day. Castro went deep as well; he had two hits and four RBI on the day.
While the Yankees are hitting well, Gausman blamed himself.
Obviously giving up 14 or more runs on consecutive days doesn't bode well for the pitching staff.
With his parents in the stands for Judge's first Major League Baseball game in his home state, the freshly-crowned AL Player of the Week heard familiar chants of "M-V-P, " usually reserved here for Mike Trout, on the disabled list due to torn ligament in his left thumb. Anderson allowed one run and four hits in six innings, and his scoreless streak stopped at 22 when Jake Lamb drove in David Peralta with a groundout in the bottom of the first. Good full seasons like this don't happen very often, but good partial seasons like this happen relatively frequently.
"It really comes down to mechanics", Tanaka said. "It's a bad combination, but Kevin...really tough on the offense". But that takes time to decipher, and you only have a precious half-a-second to hit a 95 miles per hour fastball, so why use the time that way.
Set aside for a moment the fact Judge leads the American League in average (.344), home runs (21) and RBI (47), that he appears a lock to win the Rookie of the Year Award and, more importantly, is the leader in the clubhouse for the MVP.
Showalter conceded there could be more changes coming. "He hits it so hard - I'd like to know what it feels like".
"I'm starting to trust myself a little more, just throwing it in there", Montgomery said.
Instead, as Yankees DH Matt Holliday said on Saturday, regardless of awards, Judge may be just getting started. The Rockies posted their NL-leading 40th win this season and have their longest winning streak since 2014.
"He hit off the tee".
"(I did) a better job of everything. "I got a lot of at-bats early and was able to keep my swing feeling good, and I think that helped out a lot". That's about as much of an update without guessing. But for all of those factors to align, well, we've never seen anything quite like that before.
The Orioles are 0-5 this season without Machado in the lineup.
NY has not announced a spot starter for Sunday.
Jesus Sucre had three hits and two RBIs, helping the Rays record a season-high in runs.
