Judge, Yankees take aim at reeling Orioles

NEW YORK — Aaron Judge described Giancarlo Stanton’s first Yankee Stadium home run succinctly.

“It was loud,” Judge said after he, Stanton and Gary Sanchez homered in the same game for the first time this season during Wednesday’s 7-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. “It was impressive.”

The New York Yankees often made similar comments last season about some of Judge’s swings against the Baltimore Orioles, who allowed 11 of his 52 homers.

Judge gets his first crack at Baltimore’s pitching Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series at Yankee Stadium.

En route to winning the American League Rookie of the Year award, Judge batted .426 (26-for-61) with 11 home runs, 24 RBIs and 31 runs scored against the Orioles as the Yankees won 12 of 19 meetings, including eight of 10 in New York.

Judge was the first player to score at 31 times against an opponent since Ted Williams also scored 31 runs in 1947 against the St. Louis Browns, who moved to Baltimore following the 1953 season. Judge also owns a 17-game hitting streak against the Orioles — the second-longest by anyone against the franchise since Jimmie Foxx’s 19-game run from June 1, 1938, to May 9, 1939.
