Judge clouts 22nd homer, propels Yankees past Angels 5-3

Judge clouts 22nd homer, propels Yankees past Angels 5-3

Bundy's lone win in the four-game span came against NY on May 29, when he allowed two runs in seven innings.

Rookie right fielder Aaron Judge hit the longest home run in the majors this season, a sixth-inning shot estimated at 495 feet. "Up and down, even in the leadoff spot you've got guys that can hit homers", Judge said, in describing the Yankees starting lineup to The New York Daily News. Showalter said the team will soon reach a point when it needs to decide whether Machado must go on the DL. Chris Davis drove in two runs with an opposite-field single to left and scored on a double by Jonathan Schoop, the first of his three hits.

Starlin Castro also connected for the AL East leaders in the opener of a three-game series between division foes.

The Angels handed the Astros only their fourth series loss this season and first by a team outside the American League Central. Hardy (1-for-8) have struggled against the Yankees promising young hurler, while Trey Mancini (3-for-3), Trumbo (4-for-10, 2 HR, 3 RBI) and Machado (4-for-14, 3 HR, 5 RBI) have tagged him hard.

No. 9 hitter Danny Espinosa's RBI single to right ended Tanaka's night, with two out in the seventh. Albert Pujols began the scoring with a homer with two outs in the top of the first inning.

Judge never admires a home run. He's allowed at least eight hits in 10 of his 14 starts this season.

The weekend featured a 1.1 inning start from right-hander Chris Tillman June 10 and the 16 runs by the Yankees were the most the Orioles allowed in almost five years.

"And then after that, he settled in pretty nicely", Girardi said, adding that the lefty and catcher Gary Sanchez executed the game plan well.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brian Dozier and Kennys Vargas hit home runs, leading Jose Berrios and Minnesota over San Francisco.

Gausman allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision versus the Pirates. The Rockies saw their seven-game winning streak - their longest since 2013 - snapped. They would need a four-game sweep in September to accomplish that.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Aaron Judge realized he hadn't done much to impress his parents, who were in the Big A stands for his first game of the season in his home state.

Judge is doing things so far this season that no MLB player as tall as he is has ever done before in league history.

Steven Souza Jr., Mallex Smith, Logan Morrison, Tim Beckham and Corey Dickerson all homered for the Rays.

He has the vote of Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner, who on Sunday said, "He is leading the league in All-Star votes, and if the MVP were voted on today, he'd win that, too". While Chase Headley accounted for a good portion of the 4-for-12 RISPFail, he did manage to hit a single for the Yankees third run of the evening.

NY made it 12-0 before an out was recorded in the fourth. Cameron Maybin then knotted the score with an RBI double off Tyler Clippard.

NY scored three unearned runs in the seventh following a throwing error by reliever Edwin Jackson. Donaldson and the Blue Jays knocked out Seattle starter James Paxton (5-1) after just four innings. He struck out eight and walked two.

Nova (6-4) was flawless through three innings, including striking out the side in the second.

Tillman walked Judge and Holliday on eight straight balls with one out in the second.

WASHINGTON - Robinson Chirinos hit a three-run homer in the 11th that sent the Rangers to victory.

Ichiro Suzuki led off the eighth with a homer for Miami. The ball bounced off the bare hands of a fan standing behind a fence beyond the back row of the bleachers. After allowing just two runs on six hits over seven stellar innings against Toronto his last time out, the Yankees rising ace has now allowed two runs or fewer in five of his last six starts.

CHICAGO - Mark Reynolds and Charlie Blackmon homered, rookie Jeff Hoffman pitched neatly into the seventh inning and Colorado won its seventh straight.

Cleveland took a 1-0 lead in the second inning.
