Judge went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two walks in Monday's 5-3 loss to Atlanta. Judge blasted a home run in the first inning to give the Yankees an early 1-0 lead. He's homered in four of his last six games and is 8-for-24 with five RBI over that span. Despite racking up 111 strikeouts in 298 at-bats, Judge has still produced a .279 batting average with 41 extra-base hits and 56 RBI. His 23 homers are tied for fourth most in the majors, while his 56 RBI are the ninth most in MLB.
Judge went 3-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and three runs scored Sunday against the Red Sox. Judge took David Price deep in his first at-bat of the game and didn't slow down from there, failing to reach base only once. He continues to strike out at a prolific rate, with this being the first time he hasn't struck out at least once in his last 12 starts. That can be forgiven so long as he continues to provide power, and there is little indication that will stop anytime soon as he has four homers in his past 10 games.
Judge is not in the lineup against Philadelphia on Wednesday, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports. Judge will receive a breather following 15 straight starts, during which he slashed .309/.409/.509 with two home runs and seven RBI. Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton will man the outfield for Wednesday's series finale. Look for Judge to return to the starting lineup against Boston on Friday.
Judge went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Mariners. Judge got the Yankees on the board in the fifth inning with a single that plated two, though he was only credited for one RBI due to Denard Span's misplay of the ball in left field. The 26-year-old continues to strikeout at a high clip (30.8 percent), but he's turning in another strong season with a .281/.397/.558 line to go along with 18 homers and 48 RBI.
