New York Yankees Aaron Judge’s batting power is the highest in the major leagues.
For example, among the 252 hitters who hit 188 or more bats last year, the average batting speed was 95.9 mph, which ranked first, and among the 71 hitters who hit 20 home runs, the distance was 412 feet, which was 7th. After hitting a home run, he mistook it for an ordinary fly and hung his head.
Judge hit two home runs in an away game against the Baltimore Orioles held at Camden Yards Oriole Park in Baltimore, Maryland, USA on the 10th (Korean time), leading to a 5-3 victory.
It was the first time this season that Judge had a multi-home run game. He hit two thrilling home runs in a week after hitting his second home run of the season against Ross Stripling in San Francisco on the 3rd.
Judge, who started as the second center fielder, scored a run in the first inning after a run in the first inning, hitting left-handed against right-hander starter Tyler Wells and hitting home with timely hits from Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton.
And hit a home run in the second at-bat in the third inning. After two outs, Wells hit a high fastball outside the 93.8 mile on the 7th pitch in the ball count 1B2S, leading to a solo home run that went over the middle fence.
However, when the ball hit the bat and floated into the air, Judge ran to first base with his head down. He expected it to be an ordinary center fielder’s fly, probably because he felt he didn’t hit it accurately.
However, the batted ball reached the fence, hit the top of the screen, and fell. According to Statcast, this home run had a launch angle of 29 degrees, an exit velocity of 105.6 mph, and a distance of 416 feet (about 127 m). It was a typical Jersey home run.
“I thought I hit the ball. I missed it. I was mad at myself,” Judge said after the game. He continued, “When I come here, it always seems that a good wind blows into the outfield. (Last year) I was taken aback when I heard that the fence was moved back, but that was a problem I had to deal with.” 스포츠토토
Oriole Park pushed back the left fence 30 feet before last season and increased the height from 7 feet to 12 feet. The center fence where the first home run went over that day remains the same. The jersey conveys the feel of the left fence.
Judge then drew a wedge arch in the eighth to lead 4-2. He went out as the lead hitter and pulled a four-seam fastball in the middle of the 97.4 mile in the 5th ball count 2B2S from Logan Gillaspie and passed over the wall in the middle left. He had a launch angle of 23 degrees, exit velocity of 103.0 mph, and distance of 385 feet.
Judge, who hit homers 3 and 4 of the season, went 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 2 RBIs and 3 runs, raising his batting average to 0.364 (12 hits in 33 at-bats). He marked his 4th home run on the season with 7 RBI, 8 runs scored and an OPS of 1.194.
