Judge hits 37th, Yankees beat Mets again

Share

Yankees rookie slugger Aaron Judge hit a ball a really long way and struck out, the Mets absorbed multiple injuries and bad breaks, and the Yankees' bullpen proved to be the far superior one.

Judge hit a towering home run off of Gsellman in the third inning, breaking a 1-1 tie between the Mets and his New York Yankees.

The ball traveled to the third deck in left-center field, and upon contact, not one Mets outfielder budged. He has a mammoth stat line featuring a.291 batting average with 37 home runs, 91 runs scored, 80 RBI and seven stolen bases.

In many ways, it seemed inevitable how Wednesday night's Subway Series game was going to turn out.

The buoyancy in the stock markets was led by bank stock and midcaps- two indices which had been laggards in the last week's slump. It was fuelled by domestic institutional investors who net bought shares worth Rs 1,619.17 crore, provisional data showed.

The Yankees benefited from a charitable call by home plate umpire Chad Whitson in the seventh, when Ronald Torreyes delivered a leadoff double and Jacoby Ellsbury drew a one-out walk. He did however strike out in the ninth inning, which set a new dubious record. He allowed five runs and nine hits in 7 1/3 innings against the opponent he made his major league debut against on May 15, 2014, at Citi Field. But he also whiffed in the ninth, giving him a record for position players with 33 straight games with at least one strikeout.

First baseman Greg Bird went 0-for-2 with a strikeout while playing first base for four innings with Triple-A Scranton. The Yankees led 3-2 on Chase Headley's sacrifice fly in the sixth before d'Arnaud retied it with his sacrifice fly in the bottom of the inning. It was hit so hard that leftfielder Yoenis Cespedes didn't even move. He went yard off starter Robert Gsellman to put his squad in front in the fourth inning. He allowed two runs and five hits in six-plus innings before exiting to a nice hand from the sellout crowd.
