Winning Yankees formula: Aaron Judge's mammoth HR + CC Sabathia

Yankees will reportedly explore trade options for Jacoby Ellsbury Winning Yankees formula: Aaron Judge's mammoth HR + CC Sabathia
Erik Tate | 23 July, 2017, 00:59

The biggest highlight of the night was Aaron Judge's mammoth homer in the fifth inning, which came within one row of leaving Safeco Field over the left-field stands.

Its grand elliptical arc resembled quite a few of the balls Judge put into orbit in Miami in capturing the Home Run Derby crown July 10 and had his teammates gleefully pointing and exchanging high-fives.

The Yankees, in good position to win their first series since June 9-11 against Baltimore, had 11 hits, three by Didi Gregorius and two by Chase Headley.

Merrifield's game-ending fly scored Alcides Escobar, who led off the inning with a single.

Alex Gordon had three hits and drove in three Royals runs, while Merrifield also had a two-run double in the fourth.

The home run helped give Sabathia, who turned 37 on Friday, a nice birthday present and a reward for holding the Mariners to just one run over five innings.

Investigators are asking the public to study the man's facial features and contact them with any information on him. Other details about the deaths, including how the girls were killed or a possible motive, have not been released.

Before going deep, Aaron Judge hadn't hit a homer in his first 30 at-bats since winning the Home Run Derby - the fifth-longest stretch ever for a victor, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

He did pitch with an early lead. Severino pitched out of jams in the first, second and most notably the fourth inning when Seattle had runners at the corners with no outs and was unable to score.

Frazier helped Sabathia keep the deficit at one in the second. Mike Zunino then sliced one to left where Frazier, running toward the line, laid out and made a diving catch.

He was an worldwide sign during the global signing period back in 2016 and has been rated to have a high ceiling by numerous scouts but is still considered quite raw and has a long way to go seeing as he is still only 19 years old.

The Astros took an 8-2 lead into the ninth before Adam Jones hit a two-run double off James Hoyt, and Jonathan Schoop homered with two on against Chris Devenski.

M's opened the scoring in the first off Sabathia.
