Aaron Judge hits game-winning three-run home run in ninth to end heated game between Yankees and Blu

It has been a brewing rivalry for a few years now, but Tuesday the Yankees and Blue Jays mixed in some bad blood before Aaron Judge crushed a three-run homer to walk off a 6-5 win over Toronto at the Stadium.

The Yankees (20-9) have won five of the eight games they have played against the Blue Jays (17-14) this season. It took Judge’s giant, second-tier blast to get them there, though….

The intensity went up a notch Tuesday night.

After Giancarlo Stanton tied the game in the sixth inning with a home run to right, Yimi Garcia hit Josh Donaldson on the arm with a 94-mph fastball. With Judge and other Yankees about to jump over the dugout fence, the umpires held a brief conference and without issuing a warning tossed Garcia. The right-hander had to be held back from crew chief Alfonso Marquez and when pitching coach Pete Walker got into the argument he was tossed too. That created a five-minute, on-field delay while the Blue Jays got another pitcher ready.

Chad Green gave up an RBI-double to Lourdes Gurriel Jr., scoring Vladimir Guerrero Jr. from first base. He then gave up a sacrifice fly to Alejandro Kirk.

This is the first time that there have been two good New York teams with a fighting chance to meet in October. In 2000 the Yanks were an 87 win team and the Mets were only a wild card when they met in the Subway Series.

Judge’s HR was measured at 414 feet, presumably sufficient to satisfy the distance-pedants among us.

But it went to LF. I, for one, am not satisfied! Did they move the fence back in RF at the same time? Did I miss that?

That’s a stretch. The 2000 Yankees were coming off 2 consecutive World Series wins, and 3 of the last 4. They had a 9-game lead on September 13, before letting up on the pedal to finish 3-14 while still winning the AL East by 2.5 games. But even disregarding 2000, there seems to be some sudden memory loss about much of the 1950s. Better get that checked.

I thought the ump’s reaction to the Donaldson HBP was very interesting. At the time it was a tie game one out and bases empty, so why would Garcia deliberately put a man on base there? Did he get tossed because of what he did, or because of the Yankees’ bench and fan reaction to what he did?

Do you mean if they make it, this will be the first time they were both good? Mets and Yankees were both good teams in 2006, 1999.

New York fans should have higher standards for "good" than that. The 2000 Yankees and Mets had SRS of 0.4 and 0.3 respectively.

But Sunday Silence is right to mention the 1937 teams. Of course I was thinking only of the Mets, but if you want to go back to before 1958, there were many times when the Yankees met very good Giants or Dodgers teams in the World Series, sometimes when they were easily the two best teams in baseball by statistical measures and both cruised to pennants.

Do you mean if they make it, this will be the first time they were both good? Mets and Yankees were both good teams in 2006, 1999.

That is what I meant, though I should've made that more clear. And even by my standards, 2006 would've qualified if I hadn't meant to limit it to eventual pennant winners.

The 1985 teams were basically the 1999 teams, playing in the wrong divisions, pre-wild card. Won 98 and 97 games, respectively.
   11. winnipegwhip Posted: May 11, 2022 at 09:50 AM (#6076236)
Although neither team made the post-season that year, 1985 was pretty solid for both squads.

I'm beginning to like this Judge guy.
   13. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: May 11, 2022 at 11:19 AM (#6076250)
Does this make Judge a True Yankee™, or had such legendary status already been conferred?
   14. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 11, 2022 at 01:51 PM (#6076280)
He's got provisional status, with permanent status dependent upon continuing his career as a Yankee.

Another little league home run

You can join the Yankees and become a true Yankee. Worked for Paul O’Neill. Not so much for A-Rod. Hard to start with the Yankees, leave via free agency, and still earn true Yankee status.

But not impossible! Andy pulled it off.

Speaking for untold hundreds of millions of Yankees fans from here to London to Japan and all points in between, what distinguishes a True Yankee™ from What Have You Done For Me Lately Yankees is a subtle mix of overall performance, clutch performance in memorable Big Moments, and what seems to be an "authentic" personality, for want of a better word. It helps to come up from the farm system, but it's not necessary (O'Neill, Tino, Swisher, etc.). Sometimes a player becomes a True Yankee™ almost immediately (Jeter, Bernie), but sometimes it can take many years to achieve that status. The Truest Yankee of all as seen from today's perspective is The Mick, but (trust me on this one) for the first ten years of his career he wasn't considered any more of True Yankee™ than A-Rod ever was. Like The Centaur, The Commerce Comet was wildly cheered when he was up, and mercilessly booed when he was down, until finally in 1961 the fans realized just what they had, and came to admire the sort of raw physical courage it took for him to keep playing through one crippling injury after another. It's actually all been explained in a book that's available on Amazon.

The 1986 Yankees were pretty good as well, especially at this point in the season, when they were 20-11, tied for first.

I think of Swisher as a True A.
   21. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 12, 2022 at 05:37 PM (#6076487)
Swisher's like a lot of players: When he's on your team and producing, he's your man. When he's playing against you, to many fans he's a bunghole no matter what he does. Think of O'Neill, Manny Machado, Bonds (or any of the prominently mentioned steroids players), Papelbon, Joey Bats, any prominent Houston Astro from their 2017 team who remains on their current roster, the M & M boys, etc., etc. Strong personalities are almost always polarizing.
   22. JJ1986 Posted: May 12, 2022 at 07:29 PM (#6076492)
Swisher seemed like an ####### off the field, but I don't remember him having the on-field personality of most of those guys.
