Bombers continued scalding hot streak scorching the Twins 8-3

After a thrashing of the Twins Monday night, the Bombers looked poised to continue their three-game winning streak in this homestand. CC Sabathia took the mound to face Jose Berrios and the Minnesota Twins in the second round of their four-game series. After a short stumble by Sabathia in the first inning, the Yankees scored a run or more in four straight innings to retake the lead, and never looked back. Didi Gregorius continued his impressive start, recording his seventh home run of the year and added three more RBIs to his season total. Gleyber Torres recorded his first RBI as well, and Gary Sanchez launched his fourth and fifth home runs of the year as well. The Yanks seem like they are starting to finally click, a great sign for the Bronx faithful.

This was the third consecutive month that Judge had been awarded the AL Rookie of the Month honors, and the first time he won the AL Player of the Month. Judge had a great month hitting .324/.481/.686 with 10 home runs, 25 RBIs, 30 runs, and 30 walks.

Judge, 25, is putting together a MVP caliber year as he's hitting .327/.448/.687 with a lead leading 1.135 OPS. Coming into tonight's game, Judge was second in batting average, and he is leading the American League in home runs (27), RBIs (62), runs (70), walks (58), on base percentage, and slugging.

This announcement comes on the same day that Judge announced he would be participating in the Home Run Derby. Judge will compete against some of the top sluggers in the league from Cody Bellinger, Giancarlo Stanton, and his teammate Gary Sanchez. Judge was also named as a starting outfielder on the American League All-Star team after he was the leading vote getter.
