Yankees Stage Improbable Comeback Behind a Volley of Home Runs

Didn’t look good for the Yankees, down 9-1 in the 6th, and 11-4 in the 7th, but …

“He’s probably the most gifted baseball player I’ve ever been around,” said Matt Holliday of his 25-year-old teammate Aaron Judge, a rookie with all of 155 major league at-bats. “I mean, he’s 6-foot-8, 275 pounds. He moves really well in the outfield. I’m not saying he’s going to be the greatest player who ever played, but as far as when the guy hit a 97-mile-per-hour fastball that was a line drive that the shortstop jumped for and it went over the fence. He can do things that I haven’t seen, and I’ve played a long time.
. . .
And it was especially high praise coming from the player who wound up striking the biggest blow Friday night, a game-ending, three-run home run in the bottom of the 10th inning that gave the Yankees a highly improbable, and probably unforgettable, 14-11 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

Holliday’s home run was just the final blast on a night in which Yankee Stadium 2017 played a lot like Yankee Stadium 2009, when baseballs regularly flew through air that somehow seemed too thin and soared over walls that appeared way too close.

A memorable game. Perhaps a special season?
