We recap Aaron Judge‘s monster home run, the Yankees success in interleague play and a minor league roster move.

After the Pittsburgh Pirates ripped and chewed the New York Yankees apart on Friday night, the Bronx Bombers gave them a taste of their own medicine on Saturday afternoon, scoring 11 runs en route to an 11-5 victory.

However, the story of yesterday’s game wasn’t about their three-run home runs or the bullpen coming away with the victory.

The story on Saturday afternoon was Aaron Judge’s sixth home run of the season, which was officially calculated at 457 feet, according to Statcast.

The Judge has become must-see television, but believe it or not, so have the Yankees during interleague play.

Following their 11-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Yankees are tied with the Boston Red Sox for the best interleague record in the American League. Both teams have a 214-152 record. They’re followed by the Los Angeles Angels (203-161), the Chicago White Sox (200-163), and the Detroit Tigers (198-165).

And finally, the Yankees made a small minor league roster move — and no it has nothing to do with Didi Gregorius‘ rehab in Tampa.

According to ESNY’s own Christian Kouroupakis, Daniel Camarena has been transferred from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In order to make room, J.R. Graham was transferred from Triple-A to Trenton.

The New York Yankees will attempt to take their fourth consecutive series and they’ll send Jordan Montgomery to the mound to get the job done. The Pirates will counter with Ivan Nova, and just in case you forgot — I’m pretty sure you haven’t — Nova pitched in New York for seven seasons before they traded him to the Pirates on August 1, 2016.

First pitch for that game will be at 1:35 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
