New York Yankees star Aaron Judge continues to hit bombs in the MLB Playoffs.
Tonight’s Wild Card game between the Yankees and Minnesota Twins in the Bronx has truly lived up to the term “Wild Card.”
The Twins knocked starter Luis Severino out of the game after just one out, scoring three runs in the opening frame. The Yanks matched them in the bottom of the first, making for a first inning that lasted nearly an hour.
The two teams have traded runs since, with MVP candidate Aaron Judge delivering the biggest blow thus far. He sent a jolt into a Jose Berrios pitch in the bottom of the fourth, sending it into the left field stands.

That swing extended New York’s lead to 7-4, where it remains at the end of the sixth inning.
The winner of this one-game Wild Card will advance to face the Cleveland Indians.
