Aaron Judge, Juan Soto drive in five runs in Yankees' 8-3 win over Angels

Aaron judge and juan soto drove in five of the yankees‘ eight runs as New York beat the Angels, 8-3, on Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Here are the conclusions…

-Last season, Carlos Rodón he blew an infamous kiss to the crowd after a terrible outing in his last time in Anaheim. This season was a very different story. The Yankees left-hander pitched six strong innings to give the rotation another big outing.

Through the first six innings, the only blemish was a solo shot to Logan O’Hoppewho also came to luis gil in Wednesday’s game, in the second inning to put the Angels up 1-0. All 10 home runs allowed by Rodón this season have been solo.

After the home run, Rodón retired 14 in a row before getting into trouble in the seventh when he walked a batter and gave up consecutive hits to allow the Angels to get within 7-2 before being eliminated. The Yankees bullpen would allow one more of Rodón’s runners to score as the left-hander’s night ended.

Rodón threw over 6 IP (87 pitches/58 strikes), allowing three runs on three hits, one walk and striking out five. He is the Yankees’ first starter since Nestor Cortes (May 11) to allow more than three runs.

-In support of Rodón, the Yankees’ big hitters helped get the score going. Judge hit a two-run home run with Soto on base to give the Yankees their first hit and runs of the game in the fourth inning.

It was a close game until the seventh inning when the Angels reliever Adam Cimber He had trouble locating his pitches. He allowed one hit and walked four batters, including two with the bases loaded to increase the Yankees’ lead to 4-1.

After Cimber was thrown out, Soto greeted the next Angels pitcher with a bases-clearing triple to put the Yankees up, 7-1.

Jose Trevino He hit a sacrifice fly in the eighth to extend the Yankees’ lead to 8-3. Antonio Volpe He finished 0 for 4 with a walk and a run scored, ending his 21-game hitting streak.

Ian Hamilton, making his first appearance since May 17 after being placed on the COVID IL, allowed one walk but struck out two batters in relief of Rodon. Hamilton’s combination Caleb Ferguson, Tommy Kahnle and Michael Tonkin He got the last nine outs.
