Aaron Judge, New York Yankees’s outfielder, hit first playoff home run of his career during the American League Wild Card game against Minnesota Twins. He hit a two-run home shot, thus giving the Yankees 7-4 lead over the opponent team. Judge also showed his emotion after hitting his two home runs. He screamed to celebrate his success.
Before first pitch Tuesday, the General Manager of New York Yankees Brian Cashman said, “He (Severino) has been our best. That’s the bottom line. When you’re in a situation like this, you give the ball to the guy who’s been your best all year,”. But it didn’t happen as Severino only recorded one out.
After losing three runs to Twins and Luis Severino’s terrible start in the first inning, New York Yankees seemed to be in great trouble but thanks to Didi Gregorius, Aaron Judge and talented bullpen who lead their team with score 8-4 over the Minnesota Twins.
According to the New York Yankees, it is the first time since 2003 that a Yankee rookie has hit a home run in the postseason. Earlier, it was done by Hideki Matsui(Game 2, 2003 World Series) against Marlins.
However, As per the ESPN stats and info, Judge is the 3rd rookie in the Yankee history to ever homer in the postseason debut, after Shane Spencer and Elston Howard. We wish congratulations to Aaron judge and hope that he will give brilliant performances in the upcoming games also.
