Aaron Judge hits 496-foot HR, longest since tracking began

Chants of "M-V-P, M-V-P", rang out Monday at Angel Stadium.

He has the vote of Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner, who on Sunday said, "He is leading the league in All-Star votes, and if the MVP were voted on today, he'd win that, too".

Rookie sensation Aaron Judge hit two more home runs, including a drive that cleared the distant bleachers at Yankee Stadium and sent NY romping past Baltimore 14-3 Sunday for its fifth straight win. I can, because I know about Aaron Judge. We came into this series, I think 5-4 on the year on them, and obviously that changed. "I mean, I got the best vantage point, and what I see is they're not missing", Baltimore center field Adam Jones said.

Tillman walked Judge and Holliday on eight straight balls with one out in the second.

"E.Y.is making the most of an opportunity", Angels manager Mike Sciosica said. Didi Gregorius has settled into the role of above-average shortstop, something the Arizona Diamondbacks hoped he would be when they traded former third-overall pick Trevor Bauer for him as part of a three-team deal in 2012. Unfortunately, the cutter wasn't where it needed to be. His four-seam fastball has garnered an eye-popping decrease in whiffs that dropped from a 9.06 percent rate last season to 6.59 percent this year. But he said he wasn't surprised the Angels decided against putting him on base.

"I was getting ready to hit", he said.

The blast was the longest in the Major's this season and had an exit velocity of 118.6 miles per hour. -the sixth hardest hit home run in 2017. And this year's squad also has three five-homer games in 2017, the most in the majors.

Donaldson and the Blue Jays knocked out James Paxton (5-1) after just four innings, handing him his first loss of the season and sending the thousands of Toronto fans from western Canada back north of the border after their team won two of three this weekend.

Matt Bush entered with two runners on in the ninth and allowed Stephen Drew's pinch-hit RBI single, but recorded two outs for his seventh save. Something special is brewing in NY with the new core that is arriving in the big leagues.

Mets 2, Braves 1: Seth Lugo returned from an elbow injury to pitch seven crisp innings in his season debut, leading NY to the road win.

"That might've been the furthest one I've ever seen", NY manager Joe Girardi said. The lefty lasted just 2 2/3 innings in his last outing last Wednesday against Pittsburgh, allowing four runs and eight hits. Instead, the inning was extended, and Danny Espinosa's two-out, RBI single knocked Tanaka out of the game. Cameron Maybin then knotted the score with an RBI double off Tyler Clippard. Dellin Betances would be asked to get a four-out save and get a four-out save he did.

With Masahiro Tanaka pushed back a day because of his ongoing struggles, righthander Chad Green made a spot start and allowed two earned runs over two-plus innings. [Tillman] made a lot of them.

Kole Calhoun homered for the Angels. But Maas exists as a cautionary tale and the exception to expectations, and what Judge has done to date this season is undoubtedly more impressive than that of his predecessor among big-swinging 25-year-old Yankees rookies setting the world on fire for a short time: Judge could go 0-for-51 starting Monday and still wind up with a higher batting average, on-base percentage and slugging than Maas had in 1990 in the same number of plate appearances.

Judge and Sanchez are both in their first full seasons.

Hard-throwing Alex Meyer (2-3, 4.08 ERA) will start the series opener for the Angels.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brian Dozier and Kennys Vargas hit home runs, leading Jose Berrios and Minnesota over San Francisco. If he continues with those numbers, and the team keeps producing, we could be looking at the latest era of Yankee dominance in baseball.
