Judge hits 43rd HR, Yanks hit home run, beat Ms. 7-2


NEW YORK (AP) – Aaron Judge hit his major league-leading 43rd home run, Jose Trevino had his first multihomer game and the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 7-2 Monday night in the team’s opener of the postseason.

Anthony Rizzo started the offense with a three-run homer in the first, and New York posted its 31st straight home win streak (41-13), second in the big leagues with 47 from 1918-64. The Yankees are 70-34, the first team to reach 70 wins this year.

Before the game, the Yankees acquired starter Frankie Montas and reliever Lou Trivino from Oakland, three days after Seattle acquired Luis Castillo, perhaps the best starter on the trade market. Castillo is lined up to start the series finale on Wednesday against Yankees ace Gerrit Cole.

Rizzo put the Yankees ahead with a three-run homer off Marco Gonzalez (6-11). It was Rizzo’s fourth homer in six games against the Yankees’ bullpen in right and he raised his season total to 26 with 65 RBI.

Judge hit a two-run drive in the bottom half of the second inning against Domingo German (1-1) after Kyle Lewis’ solo homer. Judge leads the majors with 93 RBIs.

Trevino reached in the fourth and added a drive to Monument Park with Ryan Borucki in the eighth. The first-time All-Star has nine homers this year, matching his total in four major league seasons, and has a career-high 32 RBIs.

After heading into the All-Star break on a 14-game winning streak, Seattle has lost seven of 11.

Adam Frazier hit his fourth home run in Germany and won his first in three games since coming off the injured list. He allowed two runs and six hits in five innings with three walks and a strikeout.

With Alex Rodriguez sitting behind home plate, Judge hit a 420-foot drive that sent the first 87.4 mph fastball into the visiting bullpen in left field.

Judge hit 67 homers, tying the Yankees record of 67 set by Roger Maris in 1961. 12.1961

Eligible for free agency after the World Series. Judge has 10 homers in 12 of his last 16 games.

Ron Marinaccio, Arldis Chapman, Jonathan Loasiga and Wandy Peralta each scored a goal.

Gonzalez allowed six runs for the first time since giving up seven on July 3 last year at Texas. He struck out nine in 5 1/3 innings, tying his second career high of three homers allowed in three starts.

The sailors move

Seattle traded LHP Anthony Misiewicz to Kansas City for cash. Misiewicz was 0-1 with a 4.61 ERA in 17 games before being designated for assignment Sunday. The Mariners also announced that the Mets have designated shortstop Travis Jankowski for assignment on Friday. Jankowski batted .167 in 43 games with the Mets.

Mariners: 1B Ty France missed the second straight game with a sore left wrist. Manager Servais said France is feeling good but not ready to swing yet.

Severino moved to 60-day IL along with RHP Miguel Castro (right shoulder strain). … RHP Clark Schmidt was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and RHP Carlos Espinal had his contract optioned from Scranton.


Seattle RHP Logan Gilbert (10-4, 2.78 ERA) will face New York RHP Jameson Taillon (10-2, 3.72) Tuesday.
