Finally, the Yankees 97.7 billion won twin guns exploded together at Yankee Stadium…AVG 0.191 big gun, name value is still a long way off

Juan Soto (26) and Aaron Judge (32), the two left and right guns that the New York Yankees are proud of, finally exploded home runs together.

At a home game against the Oakland Athletics in the 2024 Major League Baseball held at the Bronx Yankee Stadium in New York on Tuesday (Korea time), Soto and Judge started as right fielder and center fielder, respectively. Judge displayed a two-run shot in the first inning, and Soto displayed a solo shot in the sixth inning.

Judge, who was suffering from the worst slump this season, got a taste for the first time in a long time. In the top of the first inning, Judge displayed a ball count of 97.3 miles with the ball count 1B2S against Oakland’s right-handed starting pitcher Joe Boyle. It was a slightly outward-facing ball at the borderline, but Judge displayed outstanding concentration. It was a home run that was created once again after a strikeout was declared and corrected by Boyle’s balk.

According to Statcast, the batting speed was 103.2 miles, the flying distance was 361 feet, and the angle of launch was 27 degrees. It wasn’t that fast or that he flew that far, but it was encouraging to see that he hit a home run by swinging and pushing without losing his batting posture. It was his first hit in 10 days after an away game against the Cleveland Guardians on Saturday. It was his fourth homer of the season. He also posted 261 homers overall to rank ninth overall in the Yankees franchise.

In 25 games this season, Judge had 18 hits in 94 at-bats for a batting average of 0.191 with four homers, 13 RBIs and nine runs scored with an OPS of 0.702. His nine-year, 360 million-dollar mark does not match his reputation as an ultra-large contractor. The U.S. media widely analyze that since suffering a right big toe injury in June last year, overall batting productivity has declined sharply.

The Yankees acquired Soto from the San Diego Padres as a trade before the end of this season in view of synergy between Soto and Judge. Expectations were high that if Soto, who combines slugging and on-base percentage, plays well in front of Judge, Judge’s performance will jump sharply. Until now, there has been no synergy between the two. 안전놀이터

Still, Aaron Boone consistently placed the two men at No. 2 or No. 3. He has great faith in Judge. There is no alternative card. MLB.com reported that if Judge and Soto hit home runs in a game, good things would happen to the Yankees.

The Yankees won 7-3. Judge made two hits, two RBIs and one run from five times at bat, laying the groundwork for his rebound. Soto also hit a home run. In the bottom of the sixth inning with his team leading 5-3, Soto vigorously hit right-handed Denny Jimenez’s 93.7 mile high fastball with two outs and no runners, and hit a solo shot in the middle of the wall. This is his sixth of this season.
