Judge's mighty blast leads Yankees past Mariners

Andrew Cummings | 23 July, 2017, 00:57

The Yankees' Twitter account called it "the home run that broke Statcast". Sabathia is 13-6 with a 2.64 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 26 career starts against the Mariners and has shut down Kyle Seager (2-for-19, eight strikeouts).

"We were wondering if it was going to get out of the stadium", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Brett Gardner belted a solo homer and the Yankees pushed across three unearned runs on Thursday as the club moved within 3 1/2 games of first-place Boston in the AL East. Aaron Judge - who leads the majors with 30 homers - recorded an RBI single in the opener but is just 4-for-29 since the All-Star break.

Judge a homer that almost left Safeco Field, landing in the second-to-last row of the left field seats. No one has hit one out of Safeco during a game since the ballpark opened midway through the 1999 season.

Here is another look at the home run and some reactions. He finished with four RBIs, including a sacrifice fly that gave NY a 2-1 lead.

Judge's streak of 30 homerless at-bats had been the fifth longest to start the second half by a home run derby victor (per ESPN), but that drought ended with an absolute rainmaker of a shot.

His long homer left the stadium buzzing and there were more than a smattering of boos when he was walked on a 3-2 pitch by reliever Emilio Pagan in the seventh.

Moore's mistake was falling behind in the count and leaving his breaking ball elevated.

"I thought I commanded the fastball pretty well, the curveball had some life, just that curveball got a little bit away, and he does damage on pitches like that", Moore said. "I'd definitely like to have that one back". The Mariners suggested the home run measured 440 feet but that figure is perplexing to anyone with eyes.

Gardner's solo blast came in the sixth inning, and Hernandez exited after seven innings, giving up just three hits while striking out a season-high nine and walking two.
