Yankees: Gio Urshela cranks grand slam and Aaron Judge homers again


The Yankees have opened another early lead against the Red Sox.

This is the WORST Boston Red Sox starting rotation we’ve ever seen! My goodness. Zack Godley is on the hill starting on Saturday night and the New York Yankees started feasting early on.

First, it was Aaron Judge, who is on an absolute rampage, taking the right-hander deep. He’s now hit a home run in four straight games for the first time in his career, three of which have been go-ahead blasts.

This one was a 455-foot BOMB off Godley to give the Yanks 1-0 lead in he first inning.

Get that hanger OUTTA HERE! That’s four home runs and nine RBI in seven games already for the Yankees slugger. Pitchers should be petrified throwing him strikes right now.

Then, Gio Urshela busted things open an inning later with a blast of his own. The man is getting in a groove! After three straight singles from Luke Voit, Mike Tauchman and Gary Sanchez, Urshela cranked one over the center field wall for a grand slam.

That’s his second homer in as many games after going oppo on Friday night to extend the Yankees lead over the Sox. This granny made it 5-0 Yankees, and let’s not forget Masahiro Tanaka is back tonight and looked good early before running into some issues in the third. It’s now 5-2 after he gave up a walk and a few hits before being taken out.

Aaron Boone is living easy right now, and just 48 hours ago it didn’t look so great after the Bombers gave up a late lead to the Orioles before Judge’s three-run blast saved the night and provided the necessary momentum heading into this series with the Sox.

New York already has 10 runs in its first 11 innings against Boston to begin the 2020 season. Not a good time to be a Sox fan … what  a shame. Oh wait … we meant “you hate to see it.”
