WATCH: Aaron Judge casually robs Francisco Lindor of HR

New York Yankees Aaron Judge

Aaron Judge can hit home runs. We know that. But as it turns out, the New York Yankees right fielder is pretty good at preventing them, too.

With the Yankees and Cleveland Indians locked in a scoreless tie, Cleveland star Francisco Lindor hit a ball that looked like it would put his team up 2-0. Judge had other ideas.

Make no mistake, that catch is not as easy as Judge made it look. Even a tall guy like Judge had to leap up and potentially contend with handsy fans (although New York’s fans should be commended for letting him make the play).

Additionally, the pressure of this play was massive. If that ball went out, the Indians would have been up 2-0 and potentially on their way to a sweep. As it stands, it remains 0-0.
