Judge was left in the park in his five games, scoring two points on the Yankees -2 Rout of Yankee Stadium Buccaneers in eighth inning with Ovaldo Cabrera’s grand slam draw Liber Torres featured two home runs. Perhaps the most encouraging development in terms of the club’s playoffs, however, is Luis Severino’s successful return to the mound.
