Judge Is The Difference
Judge, who is coming off an historic season where he broke the hallowed standard set by former Yankees legend Roger Maris, went deep in the third inning off Tyler Wells to give New York a lead they would never relinquish. That set the tone as the Yankees would scrap for a 5-3 win where he was the difference in the game.
This is nothing new for Judge against the Orioles, a team that feels it can compete for a wildcard spot in the American League after flirting with the playoffs last season. After spotting New York, a 4-0 lead, the Orioles rallied and pulled to within 4-2.
However, Judge quashed the hopes for an Easter Sunday rally by wielding that big stick for the second time in the game. He left the yard with an eighth inning blast off Logan Gillaspie for his 28th multi-homer game and first this season, which all but sealed the victory.
