Yankees, Brewers Get Fourth Straight Wins

Jonathan Grant | June 30th, 2022

The New York Yankees didn’t get off to the best of starts on Wednesday afternoon as they took on the Oakland A’s, but in the end, it didn’t matter. They still got the job done, bailing out starter James Taillon following a 3-0 deficit that he conceded in the first inning. Aaron Judge hit his MLB-leading 29th homer to reduce the gap to just one run in the second inning before Giancarlo Stanton hit a three-run shot in the bottom of the third to give them a 5-3 lead that would hold for the remainder of the contest.

With the win, the Yankees moved to 56-20 with a fourth straight victory, and they now lead Boston by a ridiculous 13 games in the AL East. Judge, meanwhile, is six homers ahead of the next closest challenger in what has been a remarkable beginning to the season. Elsewhere, the Milwaukee Brewers also took a fourth consecutive win on Wednesday, seeing off the Rays in Tampa by that same familiar 5-3 score line. The Brew Crew, atop the NL Central by 1.5 games over St. Louis currently, hit four home runs in the affair. Rowdy Tellez was responsible for two of them, both solo shots, with one coming in the second and the other in the eighth. Another highlight saw Brewer’s center fielder Jonathan Davis throw caution to the wind to make a diving grab in the second.
