Aaron Judge Hit a Home Run So Far It Broke Statcast

  • Mariners designated hitter Nelson Cruz center celebrates at the dugout after knocking in Robinson Cano at right with his two run homer in the fourth inning against Oakland Sunday

"You'd think people would get bored when you hit it that far, but every time everyone is surprised".

The decision to throw the ball back on the field "was probably a moment of weakness", Sibley said.

Aaron Judge got Yankees fans to all rise once again. The Mariners suggested the home run measured 440 feet but that figure is perplexing to anyone with eyes. The Mariners are 2-11 over their past 13 home games after starting the season 25-12 at home.

Judge downplayed his homer, which he said he hadn't yet seen by the time he met with reporters after the game.

Merrifield's game-ending fly scored Alcides Escobar, who led off the inning with a single.

Judge came close and continued to emerge from a post-All-Star break slump thanks to his first home run since July 7. He put his head down as soon as he connected and ran around the bases as if he was in a hurry to get back to the dugout - and he was the first one back in, beating Brett Gardner and Gary Sanchez, the two base runners who were waiting to greet him at home plate.

Judge drove in four runs on the night, leading the Yankees to a 5-1 win over the Mariners.

When it was suggested that Judge had not been impressed, he smiled.

CC Sabathia allowed one run while pitching into the sixth inning of New York's 5-1 win over the Mariners on Friday night. Severino pitched out of jams in the first, second and most notably the fourth inning when Seattle had runners at the corners with no outs and was unable to score. David Robertson struck out the side in an impressive inning, his first appearance since being reacquired from the White Sox in a trade.
