The Yankees beat the Astros on Aaron Judge’s home run in the 10th
No team in baseball history has gone two straight games without recording a hit. For a while on Sunday, it appeared that the team with the best baseball record and the most runs scored in the American League could come first.
A day after three Houston pitchers threw a combined hit against the Yankees, right-hander Jose Urquidy hit another no-hitter bid in the seventh inning. But Aaron Boone’s team rallied after a three-run holeshot and snapped a four-game series split against arch-nemesis Astros on Aaron Judge’s home run for a gutsy 6 win. -3 in 10 innings at the stadium.
Giancarlo Stanton ended Urquidy’s no-hitter bid with a one-out home run to the middle in the seventh, ending a 16-inning no-hitter streak for the Yankees since Friday night’s eighth inning . DJ LeMahieu also had a game-tying two-run shot in the eighth, before Judge won it in the 10th with a three-run homer to reliever Seth Martinez – his MLB 28 leadere of the season – to complete the Yanks’ 22nd MLB all-time highn/a comeback win of the season.
Gleyber Torres had walked one out in the ninth before stealing second and advancing to third on a throwing error from catcher Jason Castro. But Torres fell taking his secondary lead and was doubled third on Aaron Hicks’ strikeout before being helped off the field and taken out of play with an apparent leg injury.
