Aaron Judge hits his 27th home run despite a hand injury

Despite 2 hits and 3 RBIs, the team lost 5-17.

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge (32) shook off concerns about a hand injury and hit a home run.
Judge started as center fielder three times in the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against Baltimore held at Yankee Stadium in New York, USA on June 21, 2024, and played an active part with 2 hits and 3 RBIs in 3 at-bats, including his 27th home run of the season.

In the 3rd inning, trailing 1-8, with 2 outs and runners on first base, Judge properly caught opposing starter Cole Irvin’s fastball and crossed the right-center wall.
Yankees fans applauded the main hitter’s home run while the team was far behind.

In particular, the fans’ reaction was even more enthusiastic because it was a home run that Judge overcame concerns about injury.

Aaron Judge injured the back of his hand in the game against Baltimore.

Judge was hit by a ball on the back of his hand during the game against Baltimore on the 19th.

Judge, who entered as the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the third inning, was hit on his left hand by a 94.1 mph four-seam fastball thrown by opposing starter Albert Suarez on a 1-2 count.
He played defense in the top of the 4th inning without being replaced, but was replaced by Trent Grisham as a pinch hitter in the offense in the bottom of the 4th.

Judge, who fortunately avoided injuries such as fractures in the post-game examination, took a day off from the game on the 20th and returned to the starting lineup that day.
Following his home run in the 3rd inning, Judge showed off his normal batting ability by scoring an RBI in the bottom of the 5th inning with a hit to left.

Judge, who led the league in home runs with his 27th hit of the season, also raised his batting average to 0.306 and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) to 1.128.

Yankees rout

Despite Judge’s performance, the Yankees suffered a crushing defeat due to the poor performance of starter Lewis Hill, who is also considered a candidate for Rookie of the Year and Cy Young Award this season.
Hill collapsed early on, allowing 8 hits and 7 runs in 1.1 innings.

Hill suffered his second loss instead of his 10th win of the season, and his ERA soared to 2.77.
Even after attacking Hill early on, Baltimore attacked the Yankees’ bullpen, scoring 19 hits and winning 17-5.
