Judge hits 1st HR … then smashes another as Yankees top O’s

The Yankees do not apologize for the formula with which their lineup has been constructed, centered around the concept of patience and power. When they see pitches — and more importantly, when they hit home runs — they will win.

That held true Saturday evening, as Aaron Judge homered in his first two at-bats and Clint Frazier reclaimed the lead with what was arguably the biggest hit of his brief big league career, a three-run blast in the eighth inning that lifted the Yankees to a 6-4 victory over the Orioles at Camden Yards.

“All week, I feel like I’ve been trying to go up there and win the game with one swing,” Frazier said. “All I did that at-bat was try to keep my head down and focus on what I was trying to do the entire at-bat, just trying to stick within myself. Sure enough, I got the pitch I wanted. I felt good from the first pitch. I was able to slow the game down a little bit.”
