Aaron Judge hit his third home run in two games in San Francisco as the New York Yankees defeated the Giants 7-3 on Saturday night.

Judge’s impressive performance continued from Friday night, where he hit two home runs in his first game at the stadium where he cheered for the Giants as a child.

“I have a lot of family in town, a lot of friends in town,” Judge said. “I have to do something special for them. Just trying to stay locked in and put on a show.”

In the first inning, Judge finished a nine-pitch at-bat against Logan Webb (4-5) by smashing a changeup 464 feet into the left-field bleachers, giving the Yankees a 2-0 lead.

During this California road trip, Judge has hit six home runs and recorded 12 RBIs in the first eight games. Yankees manager Aaron Boone praised Judge’s performance, noting that he has been outstanding throughout the trip.

Judge’s strong May performance included 14 home runs, 12 doubles, and 27 RBIs, marking the most extra-base hits in a month by a Yankees player since Joe DiMaggio in July 1937.

Logan Webb pitches in the first inning

Judge has reached base safely in 28 consecutive games, showing a level of consistency reminiscent of his record-breaking 62-homer season two years ago.

Webb intentionally walked Judge with a runner on third in a two-run third inning and later struck him out with a runner on third to end the fifth. Judge singled in his last at-bat.

Stanton contributed with a two-run homer in the eighth inning off Ryan Walker, and Alex Verdugo also drove in two runs.

The Yankees’ victory supported Cody Poteet (2-0), who was called up from Triple-A to start the game. Poteet allowed a two-run homer to Casey Schmitt in the third inning and an unearned run in the fifth to earn his second win of the season.
