  • Aaron Judge proved to be clutch with two home runs in the win

Amidst MLB's struggles early in the modified season, some games have been played with the usual scenes. One of these moments, in particular, is Aaron Judge dominating for the New York Yankees with a series of impressive home runs.

In a 9-7 victory against the Boston Red Sox, Judge once again led the charge for the Yankees with the way he performed. In what was a tightly contested match, Judge ensured that New York would come out victorious in their match. The Yankees have been in top form throughout their series with the Red Sox with how most of their offense comes from home runs. Out of their 19 runs, 16 of those were home runs with a majority could be attributed to Judge.

For a five-game stretch, Judge has already tallied six homers for the Yankees. In the recent matchup against Boston, he blasted two home runs that eventually put New York over for the win. The first one was a three-run homer in the second inning while the second one proved to be clutch with a game-winning two-run hit in the bottom of the eight.

The groove Judge has now has been beneficial for the Yankees as he’s been able to read pitches well in recent games.

"Right now, it’s just about not missing my pitch," Judge said per Sports Illustrated.

The way Judge been dominating has been one of the strong points of the Yankees this season as he’s found himself again back to numerous highlight reels. The latest home run of Judge flew 468 feet and left his bat at a staggering 107.4 mph. 

"Pitchers are making really good pitches, hitting their corners, but when there’s times when they leave one over the plate, I’ve got to do some damage on it. Fortunately enough, I’ve been able to do that a couple of times early on," Judge continued. 

For teammate DJ LeMahieu, this impressive display of Judge is coupled with a composed demeanor on the field.

"He doesn’t look like he’s doing too much," LeMahieu said.

The showing of Judge has propelled him in front of all players with the most home runs early in the season.

"Really calm, easy, confident and obviously his talent speaks for himself. When you put all those factors together, he is where he is and he’s a dangerous hitter," LeMahieu added.

It will be interesting to see if the Yankees can maintain their performance amidst everything that has been happening to the league and the current global situation.
