Judge and Carpenter homered twice

Aaron Judge homered twice to tie Roger Maris’ franchise record, Matt Carpenter also connected two times and drove in 7 runs, and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 14-1 on Saturday.

The Yankees had lost 5 of their past 6 games, and they are in trouble again when Rafael Devers hit the first homer.

Jameson Taillon regained himself, retiring his final 17 batters and pitching one-run ball over 6 innings. Ryan Weber closed out New York’s three-hitter with his first career three-inning save, and the Yankees earned their 28th comeback victory.

Judge hit a shot off Nick Pivetta in the 5th inning and a two-run shot off Kaleb Ort in the sixth. He’s on pace for 59 home runs, putting him on pace to break Maris’ 1961 club record of 61.

Carpenter received a standing ovation from fans after his three-run drive against Darwinzon Hernandez. That made it 8-1 for the Yankees and heading into Sunday’s series finale.

Carpenter also hit a three-run homer and drew a 13-pitch, bases-loaded walk in the eighth. His seven RBI matched a career high, which he also accomplished against the Cubs on June 12.

He has 13 home runs and 30 RBI since joining New York. Over the last nine days, 4 of those homers have come against Boston.

Taillon (10-2) just allowed two hits and struck out five batters . Over his last four starts, he had an 8.57 ERA.

Yankees players have described the past week as a necessary blip.

They got a little more of it when Devers connected for the second night in a row in the first inning. The solo shot was his 22nd of the season, and he’s now connected in three straight games.

In the bottom of the inning, New York responded Pivetta by pummeling. Carpenter hits a three-run homer for 4-1 lead.
