Left-handed Pirates pitcher Eric Stout pulled off something incredibly anti-climatic that led to the crowd booing him as Yankee Stadium went all-out in preparation for Judge’s 61st home run.
Aaron Judge has established himself as an unquestionable fan favourite as a result of his home run binge in 2022. In 2016, the slugger made his MLB debut with the Pinstripes. He later earned 2017 Rookie of the Year.
He was the home run leader in 2017 and has played on four All-Star teams. He has also received two Silver Slugger awards. Giancarlo Stanton’s game-changing grand slam in the ninth inning helped the Yankees defeat the Pirates.
Thus, the Yankees defeated the Pirates 9-8. While game one was close, game two saw the Yankees go on a ruthless spree. Left-handed pitcher Eric Stout intentionally walked Aaron Judge in the eighth inning of the game, when the Pinstripes led the Pirates 11-2.
