‘Yankees fans will be happy’ Watching home runs every day, Jersey No. 2 gun + Stanton 148m powerful gun
- on Apr 03, 2023
New York Yankees ‘Ssangpo’ has a good start to the season.
Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton both hit home runs in a home game against the San Francisco Giants at Yankee Stadium on the 3rd (Korean time). Both are marking 2 home runs in 3 games this season.
Judge, who played second in right field, went 4 at-bats, including 1 home run, 1 hit, 1 RBI and 1 run. In the opening game on the 31st of last month, Judge hit San Francisco starter Logan Webb’s sinker with a solo arch that went over the middle fence and hit his first major league home run this season.
After one out in the bottom of the third inning, which was 0-0, San Francisco starter Ross Stripling hit an 87-mile high slider on the second pitch and connected it with a solo shot that slightly crossed the left-middle fence. It had a launch angle of 22 degrees, an exit velocity of 111.4 mph, and a distance of 392 feet.
The Yankees won 6-0, and Judge’s home run became the final blow. The home run in the opening game was also the final arch that led to a 5-0 victory. Judge recorded a batting average of 0.462 (6 hits in 13 bats), 2 homers, RBI, and an OPS of 1.385 in 3 games.
What drew attention was the strength of Giancarlo Stanton, who is a pair of souls with Judge and is popular as a Yankees twin gun. After Judge’s first home run, Anthony Rizzo reached base with an infield hit in the third and created another opportunity.
After that, Stanton, who entered the plate, hit Stripling’s slider in the middle of the 87th mile, crossed the middle fence, and fired a two-run four that hit the middle of the crowd, widening the score to 3-0.
However, this home run was 485 feet (148 m스포츠토토) away, making it the second farthest batted ball ever for Stanton. With a launch angle of 25 degrees and an exit velocity of 117.8 mph, Stanton sensed a home run the moment he hit it, slowly put the bat down, looked at the first base Yankees dugout, and started running to the base. Judge, who watched this, also raised his right arm and cheered.
Stanton hit a home run in the bottom of the 3rd inning against San Francisco the previous day with a superior solo shot. Stanton, who scored 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 2 RBIs and 1 run, posted a season batting average of 0.250 (2 hits in 8 at-bats), 2 home runs, 3 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.058.
As of this day, the top runners in both leagues are CJ Cron of the Colorado Rockies and Trace Thompson of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who hit three side by side, and Judge and Stanton are tied for first place in the American League with six others.
Stanton, who became the home run king twice during his time with the Miami Marlins, is in a situation where he can aim for his first home run title after moving to the Yankees. He hit 62 homers, the most in a single season in the American League last year, and a strong competitor from Jersey, who won the MVP, is a colleague like a brother. Judge also became the home run king twice, last year and in 2017.
Yankees starting pitcher Johnny Britto, who took the mound before his debut, drew attention by making a surprise stop with 2 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and no runs in 5 innings.
On the other hand, Stripling, who had been working together with Ryu Hyun-jin for a long time in the Los Angeles Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays, suffered a loss in his first appearance of the season with 6 hits and 4 runs in 5 innings.
