Giancarlo Stanton added a solo shot in the ninth for the Yankees, who didn’t even have to warm up their top relievers – keeping Aroldis Chapman, Zack Britton and Adam Ottavino fresh for Game 2

The judge’s first home run since leaving the injured list on September 16 – and Bieber’s first allowed at home this season – gave the Yankees a superb 2-0 lead

« We had a big, long batting meeting about all sticking to the same plan and just trying to work counts, get some shots to drive and I think, overall we did it, « said the judge » That’s when this team is dangerous, when we go out there and we can just fight at bat All the mistakes that are thrown up there, we hammer them «
