The Dodgers won the first of the series against the Yankees thanks to Mookie Betts’ hard drive, however, the New Yorkers won the second game, 6-3, based on home runs.
Those from New York connected four home runstwo by Jake Bauers, one by Aaron Judge and one by Oswaldo Cabrera, with which they added all their careers.
Bauers the tree thundered in the second and fourth scrolls and with it notched his first multi-homer game in the majors. His two homers added the Yankees’ four runs. With the first, he sent DJ LeMahieu home and then Anthony Rizzo.
Later, in the sixth inning, Judge added the fifth run of the ‘Bronx Bombers’ by sending a very powerful line through the entire left field. ‘El Juez’ reached 19 home runs in the season and at the moment he is the second in that category, only behind Pete Alonso, who has 20.
Judge not only showed off with the wood, but also flashed the glove. In the eighth inning, the outfielder covered his field masterfully and caught a JD Martinez drive, but broke the bullpen door in the process.
After the Dodgers added two runs in the seventh, Cabrera put the final score in the ninth high with a four-cornered stick that he sent through the left part of center field. The Venezuelan replaced Bauers to patrol the left field in the seventh roll.
The win went to Gerrit Cole, who pitched a complete seven and struck out five of the batters he faced with just two walks to first baseman. Clay Holmes earned his sixth save by walking Mookie Betts and getting the final three outs at the expense of Austin Barnes, Miguel Rojas, and Freddie Freeman.
