In the darkest times, a superstar can still shine. That’s what Aaron Judge did on Friday night, clubbing a hat trick of homers as the Yankees cruised to a 7-1 victory over Arizona. Much like Gerrit Cole did on Thursday against Toronto, an all-world player’s talent shined through. We’re just lucky to have him on board!
Since it’s a Saturday en route to sadly inevitable elimination, it’s a relatively quiet day for us on the site — particularly since the Yankees are playing a matinee today. Jake will run through the Rivalry Roundup, and Sam will review the 1998 Yankees rumbling along their season-ending winning streak.
