With two home runs, a double, and a walk, Aaron Judge had already contributed more than his fair share of work at the plate.
An MVP-caliber effort was elevated by stealing a home run with a magnificent leaping catch near the wall.
After the Yankees' 10-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night,
manager Aaron Boone remarked, "That's one of the great individual games that you'll see."
As the Yankees began a West Coast swing, there were several potential storylines, but Judge dominated them all.
Domingo German won his first start after serving a 10-game suspension for
utilizing an unidentified foreign substance on the mound by pitching into the seventh inning.
For the second consecutive game, the Yankees scored 10 runs on 18 hits, a season best.
