ATLANTA - Steven Matz pitched seven impressive innings in his season debut, Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer and NY beat Atlanta to get the sweep.

The longest home run of the season, per Statcast.

To be fair, Judge is not the only New York Yankee having a great season, but at the moment he is the only one in the spotlight in New York, and all around the baseball world. NY (35-23) has won three straight, outscoring rivals Boston and Baltimore 25-3 over the last three nights, to equal a season high at 12 games over.500.

The rookie sensation with the shirt referencing a character from the movie "The Sandlot" didn't sound too impressed following the Yankees' 14-3 victory. I've got to know that with (Young) at second base, I probably have no shot of throwing him out at home.

Presently, Judge is leading the American League in all three of the Triple Crown categories (batting average, home runs, and runs batted in).

Judge takes center stage now, as we put into perspective his four-hit, four-run, two-homer performance, which included a ho-hum 495-foot blast that CLEARED THE BLEACHERS in left-center at Yankee Stadium. Shortstop Didi Gregorius lifted up diminutive infielder Ronald Torreyes for a high-five with Judge.

Yet, as he watched Aaron Judge dominate big-league pitching across the first 10 weeks of the season "Mr. October" proposed switching places. Norris delivered two pitches out of the strike zone to Judge, who then hammered the third pitch into the stands in right-center field.

"In Mike Trout's town", Joe Girardi said of the chants, referencing the injured Angels outfielder, who has won two MVPs. "He was untouchable after the first inning and I airmail a throw to the backstop and allowed the runner to get to second base", Judge said. He went 6.2 innings while allowing just one earned run (three total) on four hits. The Yankees finished off the Orioles, 14-3, to sweep the three-game series and extend their overall winning streak to five. One of those starts occurred May 30 in Baltimore when he allowed one run and seven hits in 6 1/3 innings. "We just felt let's just give him an extra day, and the benefits of doing that to me are not only just for him but obviously in somewhat doing this around him, I don't think the extra day hurts CC (Sabathia) and I really don't think the extra day hurts Michael (Pineda)". Meyer has never faced the Yankees, so this game should be a good test of his new found successes on the mound. "I mean, I got the best vantage point, and what I see is they're not missing", Baltimore center field Adam Jones said. "It's hard to get any flow to your offense when we're constantly playing catch up like that".

They jumped ahead 6-0 in the first inning of Saturday's 16-3 win.

He held the Minnesota Twins to one run and five hits in six innings on June 1 but got a no-decision.

Montgomery struck out three in the first, working around a single.

"And then after that, he settled in pretty nicely", Girardi said, adding that the lefty and catcher Gary Sanchez executed the game plan well. NY is also 5-1 in Sabathia's last six Tuesday starts, and 5-2 in Sabathia's last seven road starts. Yankees 5, Orioles 0.

The Yankees recalled right-hander Domingo German from Class AAA Scranton Wilkes-Barre as the corresponding move.

5 runs, 5 hits, 0 errors, 1 left on.

Yankees: All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman is scheduled to throw a simulated game Saturday morning at the team's complex in Tampa, Florida. RHP Stefan Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk.

Here is the official data from Statcast for Judge's 19th home run of the season.
