How Yankees' Aaron Judge celebrated 13th-inning, slump-busting, game-winning homer

Yankees get their wish, will no longer be on Sunday Night Baseball on July 8 Yankees boycott threat works, ESPN will no longer televise game

In at least one case, the Yankees seem to agree - and they might take action to change ESPN's plans. The plan for him to get three innings of game action later this week (uncertain as to where) ...

For the second straight game, the Toronto Blue Jays got a whale of a performance from a member of their beleaguered starting pitching staff.

This is his second stint on the DL this season after missing 18 games earlier with a rather mysterious inflammation issue in his throwing (right) shoulder. Manager John Gibbons elected to pull Estrada with the Jays up 1-0 after he gave up a single and hit a batter to start off the seventh.

"I was just trying to get on base for the guys behind me", Judge said. The Yankees, led by manager and former Sunday Night Baseball analyst Aaron Boone, had strenuously objected to playing on Sunday night, given that they have a double-header slated for the following day in Baltimore, with the first game falling at 1 p.m. And playing out of Class A Advanced Dunedin is infielder Kacy Clemens, the son of seven-time Cy Young Award victor and former Blue Jays Roger Clemens.

"It's not a position we want to find ourselves in but it's the reality of the situation", Pillar said. The Blue Jays have hit nine over their last 10. But after batting.211/.344/.436 through the first half of the season, he recovered to finish at.278/.402/.611. We did a lot of things that we haven't been doing that we need to do better. McAffer went in the 25th round and Palmegiani in the 35th. Both have played in the annual T12 tournament the Blue Jays host to showcase young Canadian players. "T.J".

Taliban agree three-day Eid ceasefire in Afghanistan
The clerics also recommended a ceasefire with the Taliban, which Ghani endorsed. However, it insisted that attacks on foreign forces should continue.

Easier said than done, but Judge is an expert at turning the page no matter how high his highs are or how low his lows are.

Noah Naylor of Mississauga, Ont., the younger brother of Padres prospect Josh, was the first Canadian chosen, going 29th overall to Cleveland. "He's been so important to what we've been able to do, especially offensively and the length of our lineup". Our bullpen just kept putting up zeroes and allowed us to be in that position and when you've got Judge up at the plate, you know you're going to get a good at-bat and he has a chance to hit the ball out.

Baseball Canada's fine work was again rewarded in the draft, with seven members of the junior national squad having their names called. "It varies", Sanders said of the Day 3 approach.

"I really don't care that the run came in, Oh's a great guy and I feel bad for him that it happened in that inning", said Estrada. At the same time we do need to fill out organizational rosters.

Sanders added that the organization was also excited about the two Canadians they picked up in the draft - RHP Will McAffer from North Vancouver (who played at Tulane) and third baseman Damiano Palmegiani of Surrey, B.C., who played at the The Vauxhall Academy of Baseball in Alberta. I think the commissioner was very involved.
