Home NYC Teams New York Yankees

New York Yankees: Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton homer in extras (Highlights)

Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton broke open the scoring with a pair of monster home runs for the New York Yankees.

This is what New York Yankees fans envisioned when Brian Cashman traded for Giancarlo Stanton in the offseason. Stanton and Aaron Judge mashing awe-inspiring home runs.

In a game where there was little to no offense from either team, Judge and Stanton blew it open in the 13th inning. Aroldis Chapman came in the bottom half of the inning and shut the door on Toronto.

While Judge and Stanton are sure to steal the headlines, Sonny Gray had a huge imprint on this game. Gray went eight strong innings and only surrendered two hits. He was completely locked in tonight and we’re finally starting to see a consistent Sonny Gray.

Gray’s produced a quality start in five of his last seven starts. Hopefully, he can continue to build on starts like this. With the loss of Jordan Montgomery to Tommy John surgery, the Yankee starting rotation depth is in question. If Gray can find some consistency, it will go a long way towards answering any questions about the rotation.

Most nights, giving up no runs through eight innings is going to be enough to get the win—especially with the way this Yankees lineup is producing. But unfortunately, tonight was not most nights. It took 13 innings before the Yankee bats awoke from their slumber.

But eventually, the sleeping giants woke up and the Yankees swept this short, two-game series. They are off tomorrow before the Subway Series begins on Friday.
