Another nice win! First series win, plus back to .500 — so maybe we can start overlooking that ugly first week, you think? Good first start from Montgomery — other than the one bad pitch to Weeks which ended up as a 2-run homer, he looked very solid. And Aaron Judge looks like he’s starting to figure things out. He ended up last year with a rather discouraging .179 BA, but he’s now got his average up to .308 with a very nice 1.071 OPS. And that home run in the seventh was something to behold!
Now all we need is a nice start from Severino and a series sweep.
