New York Yankees 10, Seattle Mariners 2

SEATTLE — Aaron Judge hit his third home run in just two games. Anthony Volpe and Greg Allen also hit home runs, which was a great show. The New York Yankees have now won four games in a row. They beat the Seattle Mariners 10-2 on Tuesday night to keep their winning streak going.

On the first pitch of the seventh inning, Aaron Judge hit a huge fly ball at Darren McCaughan, who was in relief. Even though the ball just barely went over the left-center field fence, it would not have counted as a home run at Yankee Stadium. Still, Judge’s hit at the right time made the game even more exciting.

Aaron Judge‘s powerful hit in the seventh inning marked his 18th home run of the season. This impressive feat followed his outstanding performance in the series opener on Monday night when he slammed two home runs.

Even though Aaron Judge’s home run might get more attention, it was Anthony Volpe11’s amazing long ball that made a big difference in the game. In the third inning, with two outs, Seattle starter Logan Gilbert made a mistake by throwing a 1-2 slider that hit too much of the plate. Volpe took advantage of the chance and threw the ball an amazing 413 feet, which resulted in a three-run home run and made the score 6-0. This was Volpe’s eighth home run of the season, and it got the youngster out of a slump. Before this, he was only 2-for-22.

Stepping in for the injured center fielder Harrison Bader, Greg Allen made an impact by smashing his first home run of the season, leading off the fourth inning. Additionally, Isiah Kiner-Falefa played a crucial role with a two-run single in the first inning. Taking advantage of an error, the Yankees swiftly granted starter Nestor Cortes a 3-0 advantage even before he stepped on the mound.

In a remarkable display of offensive prowess, Isiah Kiner-Falefa came through once again with a two-run single in the ninth inning. Notably, the New York Yankees have now scored at least 10 runs in three consecutive games, marking the first time they have achieved this feat since September 15-17, 2020. Their explosive offensive performances highlight their current dominance at the plate.

Nestor Cortes, who has a record of 5 wins and 2 losses, pitched well and went through all five games without any problems. He gave up two runs and five hits, and he got six hitters to strike out. In the fifth inning, RBI doubles by Ty France and Teoscar Hernández helped the team win. Aaron Judge tried hard to dive and stop Hernández from getting a hit, but his try failed, and Hernández got a double. This came after Judge’s amazing play on Monday, when he stopped Hernández from hitting a home run.

Logan Gilbert, with a record of 3 wins and 3 losses, had a shorter outing, lasting only four innings for the second time this season. His performance was not at his best as he gave up a season-high of five earned runs, while his four strikeouts matched a season-low. It was a challenging outing for Gilbert as he struggled to contain the Yankees’ offense.


Yankees’ RHP Clarke Schmidt (2-5, 5.58) took the loss despite allowing only one earned run in his last start. He has gone at least five innings in five of his last seven starts.
