New York — – Aaron Judge Maintaining his agonizing pace and achieving his 54th major in the league, he continued for the third day in a row and sent the New York Yankees over the Minnesota Twins 5-2 on Monday.
Al-Qadi has been in five of his last seven matches with the leaders of the Middle East region. He broke the tie 2-2 in the sixth game when he hit a slider 3-1 from Trevor Miguel (3-2) in the second group on the left.
“It’s hard to describe what he’s doing with words,” said director Aaron Boone. “Just a special season is in the middle.”
The All-Star hit 54 of the Globes in his 131st game. He’s on track to hit 65, four more than Roger Maris AL’s record set in 1961. Judge continued to downplay his quest for history.
“I just try to do what I can every day,” the judge said. “I go to work, ready to go and do whatever it takes to help our team win today. Whether it’s moving a man, leading a man inside, or playing in defense, that’s what I focus on.”
Judge reached 54 Homers in New York Game #135. Maris scored his #54 when he arrived with Washington player Tom Cheney in New York Game #139 on September 6, 1961.
“I’m watching her closely. How could she not?” Boone said, adding, “It would be so cool.”
It was the ninth time in his career that a judge had scored three games in a row and the third time this season.
The judge also doubled. His last home came after Gary Sanchez hit a 473-foot, two-wheeler hit from a short distance in the left field bleachers. Jameson Telon In the fifth he tied it at 2.
“Right now, especially his season, he’s always been a very good player, even better,” said Twins coach Rocco Baldele. “This season he has been a good player as we have seen for a long time.”
After the call, Sanchez saw the ball flying in the stands, dropped his racket and ran around the bases while some of his teammates hit the dug rail.
Marwin Gonzalez He also submitted to the Yankees, ending a 0-for-29 slip with his first hit since July 6.
“It’s hard for me to hit just one,” Kenner Valeva said of the judge. “For him to do what he’s been doing but still has key successes and contribute in other ways to walk, especially when guys don’t want to show him off, I think that’s what makes him so impressive.”
Greg Weissert (2-0) Go down 1 1/3 innings.
Clay Holmes He made 1-2-3 in ninth place in his 19th save.
Judge scored in the first when he doubled and scored Donaldson’s goal from the base of the left field wall. The judge scored before Donaldson was flagged in second after he appeared to think he made the attack.
New York took a 2-0 lead when Gonzalez hit a slider in the right field bench in third.
Taillon allowed two runs and six runs in five innings. Three of those came in the fifth inning and rookie RF Oswaldo Cabrera assisted him with the fourth assist when Miranda was sent off trying to extend his song into the fifth.
Taillon came down for the first time since his second-half exit on Tuesday against the Angels when he took a comeback by the forearm.
Minnesota Chris Archer He allowed two runs and four hits in five rounds and is winless in his last 10 starts.

Yankees: DH Giancarlo Stanton He was raised to a pinch hitter in the eighth after contaminating a ball from his left foot in the sixth. Stanton frowned and could not put any weight on his left foot. Boone said he’s not sure if Stanton will be available for Tuesday night’s game. … LF Andrew Benintende He will have surgery on Tuesday after breaking a bone in his right wrist during a Friday night swing. Boone said Benintende, who was acquired from Kansas City in late July, could play again this season. “I think there’s still a possibility of him coming back,” Boone said. … 1 b Anthony Rizzo (Lower back) Baseball activities are expected to resume Wednesday.
