Yankees 7, Red Sox 5, number 61, but three is the magic number

Well, it didn't arrive either today. Despite having an at-bat snatched from him due to a poor umpire call and seeing more pitches in the zone today than it felt like he has in a while,

Aaron Judge still completed the game with 60 home runs. That was essentially the day's worst development, though, 

as Domingo Germán performed his job, three Yankees hit deep balls, and New York defeated the Red Sox 7-5.

Nick Pivetta threw Aaron Judge three consecutive fastballs in the zone when he was down looking in the first inning. The big slugger could have been surprised to see a person 

go after him in that manner after seeing garbage for four or five games. Fortunately, Gleyber Torres was a wonderful teammate and grabbed his leadoff batter in the very first inning:

Even though Torres had a bad August, much of it deserved, the second baseman has regularly had a 125-130 wRC+ in every other month and has hit 24 home runs this season.
