Aaron Judge was not going to be left out of a home run derby for long. The New York Yankees right fielder extended his team’s lead with the fifth combined home run of Tuesday’s American League Wild Card Game.

We’ve grown used to seeing the high, massive shots from Judge that land 25 or more rows back in the bleachers. This one was different. Although at 108 miles per hour, it was hit just as hard as we’ve come to expect.
More importantly, it extended his team’s lead to 7-4 in what’s been a wild game against the Minnesota Twins.
