The New York Yankees dropped the ball against the Oakland Athletics in the series opener on Monday. Hitters failed to come through as Carlos Rodon’s strong shutout start was wasted down the drain. However, after a narrow 4-3 win on Tuesday, the hitting lineup finally delivered in the series finale on Wednesday.

In a convincing 7-3 win, Aaron Judge, Juan Soto, and Anthony Rizzo each hit a home run before the lower order contributed with walks and RBIs. Meanwhile, Yankees manager Aaron Boone, who had a tough night on Monday, finally got to witness an all-around show from his team, which left him largely impressed.


Aaron Boone Reflects On Aaron Judge-Juan Soto’s Dominance With Funny Analogy!

On Wednesday, the New York Yankees got to witness two of the biggest superstars of the game, Aaron Judge and Juan Soto, in their finest form against the Oakland Athletics. Judge broke out from his early season slump to pump his 261st career home run in the bottom of the first innings and, accordingly, put the first runs on board for the Yanks. A few innings later, Juan Soto decided to join the party as he slammed his sixth home run of the season to add to the Yank’s match-winning lead. Interestingly, this is the first time Judge and Soto have hit home runs in a single game, and that soothing sight surely excited manager Aaron Boone back in the dugout.

Aaron Boone compared Aaron Judge and Juan Soto’s stellar show to that of a hot chocolate on a cold day, as it gave him a warm and fuzzy feeling. The Yankees manager added that is why he’s elated to see Judge and Soto dominate together; it surely won’t be the last time the duo will explode on the plate together. Meanwhile, Judge also reacted to Boone’s funny analogy and said he also felt warm and fuzzy after the Yanks fetched a much-needed win. “After every win, I feel warm and fuzzy. That’s a great line,” Judge said after the game. After a rare series loss against Toronto Blue Jays, the Bronx Bombers are back to winning ways and managed to reclaim the top spot on the AL-East table with a 17-8 impressive record. Next up, the Yanks will be up against Milwaukee Brewers in a three-series game.

In a latest interview, New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman endorsed Juan Soto as a Hall of Fame-caliber player who has been one of a kind for the team. He added how Soto’s transition to Bronx has been smooth and that the organization is grateful to have him on board.

Brian Cashman further added that Juan Soto has been the Yankees’ driving force this year, and his personality fits perfectly with the club’s ideologies and goals. “It’s been a good run. And he’s obviously helped us hit that win column quite often so far,” said Brian Cashman at a public event hosted by the Bronx Children’s Museum and Players Alliance.
