Aaron Judge responded to Toronto’s accusation of cheating by hitting a two-run homer in the eighth inning, and breaking a maple leaf sign attached to a wall at the Rogers Centre. His homer allowed the New York Yankees to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-3, after one of Yankees pitchers was ejected for doing something wrong.

Monday, Judge got booed from the crowd when he struck out in his first two attempts at batting. Despite this, He managed to hit two solo home runs in a 7-4 win. The second one was particularly special being 462 feet long, and as he took it off Jay Jackson, Judge glanced quickly towards the Yankees dugout – leading people to think that he could have been looking for someone’s sign. Toronto’s broadcasters speculated about this and their manager John Schneider thought it was strange.

Tuesday, Aaron Judge was staring intently at Erik Swanson when he hit a really long drive. The baseball flew for 448 feet and smashed the white maple leaf sign – it is Canada’s national symbol and also the logo of West Jet, one of the sponsors for the center field bar area. Aaron heard from someone that this happened but hadn’t seen it himself yet. He said he had to take look at it.

Judge has hit five home runs in his last four games, making eleven homers for him with 26 runs scored total. He’s done some awesome hits even in the past.

Judge laughed when asked if he was billed for one of his amazing homeruns at Yankee Stadium long ago – “I got sent a TV instead!”, he said.

His 31 homers ties with the same number of homers legendary Yankees player Jorge Posada hit against Blue Jays which is really impressive as Judge only faced them 100 times compared to Posada’s 186.

Isaiah Kiner-Falefa hit a home run for the Yankees. In the third inning, Judge struck out and there was a loud argument between Pete Walker, a coach from the Blue Jays, and Luis Rojas from the Yankees. Luis was formerly a manager for the Mets. Boone (from the Yankees) thought all of this arguing about coaching positioning is unnecessary.

Boone said it was silly and ridiculous. He hoped that everyone would understand that.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., a star from the Blue Jays, had to leave the game after 8 innings because his right knee hurt. It looked like he got injured when he tried to field Gleyber Torres’ bunt.

Manager John Schneider mentioned that Guerrero needs to have an MRI exam.

Germán was kicked out of the game when umpires checked his hands to see if he was using something known as ‘sticky stuff’, which is not allowed.

Afterwards, Germán said he was sorry for putting his team in a tough spot.

This ejection probably means that Germán will get a 10-game ban from Major League Baseball, and it’s actually the fourth time someone has been prevented from playing since MLB started its crackdown on forbidden grip aids two years ago – with this being the second occasion already this season.

Boone said that this season has started off not so great. During the fourth inning, Germán was pitching and the first base umpire checked him out but then more umpires came over to join them as well as Boone. At the end of it all, crew chief James Hoye got rid of Germán from the game by ejecting him.

The umpire, Hoye, noticed that when he looked at Germán’s hand it was very shiny and very sticky. His fingers had trouble coming off the pitcher’s palm. This happened during a start on April 15 against Minnesota while Germán was retiring his first 16 batters. Hoye asked Germán to take off the rosin from his hand but some of it remained on Germán’s pinkie finger.

Max Scherzer, pitcher for the Mets, was suspended in April 2020. Two other pitchers from the Seattle and Arizona teams were also suspended during 2021 – Héctor Santiago and Caleb Smith.

Germán, another pitcher, was replaced by Ian Hamilton. Unfortunately, he had to be removed after just 27 pitches because of a tight groin injury.

Ryan Weber then pitched for the Yankees and got his first win with them. He managed to make it through 2 1/3 scoreless innings without giving up any hits!

Wandy Peralta, the sixth Yankees pitcher, got Santiago Espinal to hit a double play with two people on-base, which gave the Yankees their third win.

Gleyber Torres and Harrison Bader both scored in the third inning, while Isiah Kiner-Falefa scored their first homer of the season in the fifth. This increased the lead to 3-0.

The Toronto team scored points with four successful hits in a row during the fifth inning. Kevin Kiermaier hit a home run and Bo Bichette got an RBI double while Guerrero drove in a point with an RBI single.

An update was also given regarding Yankees’ pitcher Luis Severino, who came back from injury after 3 1/3 innings of playing Double-A Somerset, giving up two runs and six hits while walking one person and making three strikeouts.

On to other news, Blue Jays pitcher Kevin Gausman made 10 strikeouts in seven innings which led the team to have 77 total strikeouts. The AL leading figure!

That’s it for now – more updates will be announced later!

On Wednesday, Gerrit Cole (5 wins and 0 losses with an ERA of 2.22) will play for the Yankees against Chris Bassitt (5 wins and 2 losses with an ERA of 3.49) from the Blue Jays.
