Stanton, judges home run again as Yankees beat White Sox 10-4

CHICAGO (AP) — Aaron Judge remembers watching Giancarlo Stanton from a distance during his 2017 NL MVP season.

“It was special,” he said.

The tear Stanton is on now has a familiar feel.

Stanton had his third straight game, Judge went deep for the second time in two nights and the New York Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox 10-4 on Friday.

“I’m thinking about the second half of 17 for him and how I would light up MLB Network,” Judge said. “Every other day he felt like he was getting a home run, a two-run homer, a three-run homer, 2 for 3, two walks. You couldn’t throw anything at him.

It’s been like that lately too.

Stanton put the Yankees on course for their 19th win in 22 games when he hit a first-inning two-run drive against Vince Velasquez (2-3). He did so after hitting two home runs and making a career-high six runs in Thursday’s 15-7 win.

Judge made it 6-0 with a solo shot in the fourth — his 12th major league home run.
