MUST SEE: Aaron Judge puts the Yankees on his back and hits game-winning homer to sweep Red Sox

New York Yankees, Aaron Judge

The New York Yankees entered the bottom of the eighth inning down 7-6 when Mike Tauchman earned a walk. Thanks to a beautiful orchestration of managing by Aaron Boone, Tauchman stole second base, putting him in scoring position.

DJ LeMahieu followed with a single to right field, allowing Tauchman to round third base and score with ease. With the game tied 7-7, Aaron Judge stepped up to the plate. He had previously hit a home run in the second inning, scoring Miguel Andujar and LeMahieu.

With DJ at first base, Judge slammed a curveball over the middle of the plate to the bleachers. Traveling 468 feet, he logged his sixth home run in eight games, putting him on pace for 45 homers in a 60 game season.

This is the second time judge has hit a game-winning home run in the last four days. He is on fire, and his defense was also stellar in the victory.

The Yankees will now host Philadelphia, who have battled potential COVID-19 tests this past week after playing the Miami Marlins. The Yankees are now 7-1 and in first place in the AL East. They are undoubtedly off and moving on the 2020 season, and have started off with a bang.
