In the first inning on Saturday night against the Baltimore Orioles, Judge ripped a 121-mph laser that just stayed inside the foul pole in left field for the hardest home run hit since Major League Baseball rolled out its Statcast data system. The Yankees went into Saturday's game against the Orioles with a three-game lead over the Boston Red Sox for first place in the AL East. He has lost his last three starts and was hit hard by the Yankees on May 30 in Baltimore, allowing five runs and seven hits - three homers - in 2 2/3 innings.

The Yankees recently unveiled the Judge's Chambers in right-center field, where fans wait in judge's apparel for potential blasts from rookie phenom Aaron Judge, who has already peppered Yankee Stadium with monster homers. Tillman gave up seven hits, with three of those leaving the yard. Hicks hit a two-run shot into the second deck in right for his 10th home run, giving him 34 RBIs. The Orioles only had one hit after the second inning.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is 8-1 in the last nine meetings between these two teams and is 5-1 in the last six meetings in NY.

The Yankees designated LHP Tommy Layne for assignment following the game and will recall RHP Domingo Germán from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Austin Romine added a two-run single in the eighth.

The 23-year-old righty - yes, don't forget that he's still the third-youngest AL pitcher to start a game this year - clearly has reestablished both his changeup and his swagger on the mound, helped along by an average fastball of better than 97 miles per hour, tops in the majors among starters, according to FanGraphs.

So what is it about this apparent home field advantage? And he delivered, remaining unbeaten over his past seven appearances (3-0, 1,90) with just one shaky start - departing in the third inning on May 14 against Houston - among them.

On the other side, well, the offense was reactive to start and became Aarons' Party as the night wore on.

"(Judge) definitely got us started, " Gary Sanchez said via interpreter, one of five different Yankees with home runs on Saturday. On the disabled list since May 6 (retroactive to May 5), the All-Star closer will throw live batting practice on Thursday. There is no timetable for his return. "The Yankees are gaining good momentum, so they're a good pick." says line director David Strauss, MyBookie Online Sportsbook. "He got ahead, expanded with his curveball with two strikes, and got him to chase". He has been sidelined since May 13 with rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder, but said he hasn't felt any discomfort since the day he went on the DL. Ellsbury has been riding an exercise bike, running on a treadmill and playing catch.

The Orioles holds a 5-4 win/loss record against the Yankees this season.

Montgomery scattered three hits and three walks on the afternoon.

It was announced yesterday the struggling Masahiro Tanaka's start, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, was pushed back to Monday against the Angels in Anaheim.
