Aaron Judge powers Yankees past Red Sox with late home run

It wasn't just the numbers, though. "He just has a way of competing in the biggest spots". On the seventh pitch of the at-bat, Gardner slashed one into the gap in left-center for a two-run triple that gave the Yankees a 7-6 lead. He saw a 3-0 breaking ball.

The homer left Ramirez's bat at 113 miles per hour, the second hardest any ball has been hit by the Red Sox this season. Giancarlo Stanton is slashing just.237/327/.504 but has eight doubles and nine home runs.

They improve to 26-10. It's their first 16-1 stretch since way back in 1953.

Fans at a sold-out Yankee Stadium went wild in the eighth.

"I couldn't hear anything", Judge said of rounding the bases. It shouldn't be long before he's sent to Class A Tampa or Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for a rehab assignment, Boone said. It's so much fun to be a part of these games, honestly. But Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman struck out the side to earn the save. We weren't trying to give him anything to hit. Martinez argued for interference, but the umpires held him at first on a grounder hit inside the bag. During the playoffs, he was relegated to a role in the bullpen, where the $30m a year southpaw thrived in 6.2 innings without yielding a single run. Boone predicted before the game that a breakout was imminent, citing internal metrics and an appreciation for Gardner's steady approach. "He got good wood to it". This rally came an inning earlier. Alex Cora called for Kimbrel with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning, with the Red Sox clinging to a 6-5 lead and with runners on the corners. Craig Kimbrel is one of baseball's best and most reliable closers, and on Wednesday night he was asked to nail down a five-out save for the Red Sox.

"Today was the day we were like, 'You know what?" "But I think we all have a lot of confidence in each other that we're going to get the job done".

Ramirez crushed a two-run shot into the second deck, his first home run since April 14.

That batter was lead-off man Brett Gardner, who'd been struggling at the plate, entering the game with a sub.200 batting average, but Yankee manager Aaron Boone showed faith in Gardner, and that faith was rewarded with the triple to right center.
