Yankees' Aaron Judge: I have no Home Run Derby hangover

Yankees' Aaron Judge: I have no Home Run Derby hangover

We'll take Bradley's word that it's not the best of his career, but it certainly is up there, especially given the situation: late in a game against the Yankees, with Aaron Judge at the plate in a pretty crucial July game in front of a national TV audience. But Judge's ruling after a robbery by Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. also showed fairness and impartiality.

Betts' two-out homer in the third inning snapped a stretch of 24 consecutive scoreless innings for Boston.

The Red Sox were obviously keen on the catch. The Yankees are the last team in the majors to be shut out. The hit was Dustin Pedroia's RBI single in the sixth, which scored Betts, who three innings earlier had ended the team's scoring drought with his 17th homer of the year.

Trailing 3-0 (the same score they won by in Game 1) in the top of the eighth, it appeared that Aaron Judge had added to his MLB-leading home run total when he hit a ball 411 feet to center field.

Did Gregorius doubled with one out in the ninth and Kimbrel walked pinch hitter Brett Gardner after a fly out to bring up another pinch hitter in Chase Headley, who struck out to end the game.

In the makeup of an April 25 postponement, the Red Sox hit just four balls out of the infield and extended their scoreless streak to 22 innings.

Manager Joe Girardi feels that Judge is "just missing some pitches...he's a little off".

The Red Sox went on to hand the Yankees their first shutout of the season.

Michael Pineda (partial tear, right elbow ligament) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Yankees: Open a three-game series against Minnesota.

Thirty-four innings later, the opportunity has come and gone, and the Sox are right back where they were at the beginning of the All-Star break with the same obvious strengths and the same glaring weaknesses.

NOTES: New York RHP Bryan Mitchell and Boston INF/OF Brock Holt were the 26th men for Sunday's doubleheader.
