Orioles Look To Lessen The Gap In AL East In Series Against Yankees
Hicks homered twice and rookie Jordan Montgomery pitched seven stellar innings to lead NY over the Baltimore Orioles 8-2 on Friday night.
He is shockingly athletic for 6-foot-7, with a smart quickness on the bases and good range and ability playing right field. Their offense is now second-best in the AL (5.5 runs per game), while they also rank second in batting average (.268), third in home runs (90) and fourth in stolen bases (36).
According to MLB's Statcast, Judge's 20th home run of the year traveled 495 feet - tied for the second longest in the so-called Statcast-era which began in 2015.

Tanaka gave up three home runs in five innings Tuesday night during a 5-4 loss to Boston, his fifth consecutive defeat. The Yankees selected RHP Clarke Schmidt in the first round of Monday's draft, the 16th player picked overall.
Chase Utley also connected for the Dodgers, who have won four straight. How about going 6 innings 3 of his last 4 starts with only 2 total ER in those 18.1 innings? As for Ramirez, He coughed up seven earned in 4.1 innings against the Twins, then followed that up with four earned in 5.0 innings in Detroit. "He's gonna hit balls places no one has ever hit them".
Historically, Yankee Stadium has never been friendly for the Baltimore Orioles.
But instead of allowing his evening to collapse again under an avalanche of hits and runs, Tanaka's sharp splitter and slider reappeared and he retired 13 straight batters at one point, exciting the heavy pro-New York contingent of fans.
They were so impressed that Gary Sanchez mixed in a "wow" while speaking Spanish before getting his words translated and Brett Gardner wished he could hit the ball that hard.
At the rate Judge is going, the records and feats of this young man are bound to grow, and he'll continue to be fodder for quizzes and trivia questions for many years to come.
