The New York Yankees once again beat the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night. Aaron Judge put an exclamation mark on the victory by hitting a ridiculous line-drive home run to straightaway centerfield. The shot — which could have been used to hang up a clothesline — traveled at 117 mph and a launch angle of 16 degrees. It was the type of low liner you’d see from someone playing conservative links-style golf.
Judge has followed up his brilliant 2017 with a hot start. He owns a .308/.429/.579 slash as well as 9 homers and 27 RBI. And at any given moment he can hit a ball so hard it breaks the brain, which is nice.
