SEATTLE (AP) – Aaron Judge won for the third time in two games, Anthony Volpe and Greg Allen fumbled as the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 10-2 for the fourth straight time on Tuesday.
Judge flied out on the first pitch he received from reliever Darren McCaughan in the seventh. The ball went far enough to go over the fence in left-center field.
At Yankee Stadium, that drive would not have been a home run.
Judge hit 18 home runs for the season. He hit two homers in the first game of the series on Monday night.
Although Judge’s freshman home run made headlines, it was Volpe’s long home run that decided the game. With two outs in the third, starter Logan Gilbert (3-3) hit a 1-2 slider just over home plate, and Volpe sent the ball 413 feet for three RBIs that made it 6-6. 0.
It was Volpe’s eighth home run of the season, snapping a streak in which the rookie went 2-for-22.
Allen, filling in for the injured Harrison Bader in center field, hit his first home run of the season, leading off the fourth inning. Isiah Kiner-Falefa added a two-run single in the first inning.
The Yankees took advantage of an error to take a 3–0 lead before Cuban starter Nestor Cortes (5–2) took the mound.
For the Yankees, 5–2 with a run by Gleyber Torres of Venezuela, Osvaldo Cabrera without an official turn but with a home run.
For the Mariners, Dominican Julio Rodriguez 5-0, Teoscar Hernandez 4-1 with one RBI. Eugenio Suarez of Venezuela 4-1. Panamanian Jose Caballero 4-0.
