The Yankees win their 4th contest in a row — defeating the Red Sox by a score of 5-1 tonight. Aaron Judge once again led the charge offensively as he hit his 3rd home run in three games — a 2-run shot in the 3rd inning. Gio Urshela and Brett Gardner also went yard for their firsts of the season!
Jordan Montgomery pitched very well in his return to the Bronx, tossing 5.2 IP of 1-run ball, striking out 4 to earn the win. Chad Green would relieve him and was just marvelous, shutting down Boston for two scoreless innings with 4 K’s. Adam Ottavino and Jonathan Holder pitched the final innings, allowing no runs to help secure the win.
