The Yankees (81-66) matched their high-water mark for the season at 15 games over.500, last achieved June 12, when they were 38-23. Judge has 43 homers and 96 RBIs, and with 27 homers at Yankee Stadium this year broke the ballpark's season record set by Curtis Granderson in 2012.
"I think we've played well the last four series and we want that to continue as we move forward", Joe Girardi said beforehand.
Yankee Stadium's sound system failed before New York took the field against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday night. The Yankees have scored 87 runs at home, where they are 7-1 against the Orioles. "I don't have an exact date for you, but I think (Hicks) will play before the season's out", said Girardi. "There is no explanation, sometimes those things just happen". "It had been a couple days since I got an at-bat and if felt like my timing was a little bit off. But just keep working and keep staying with the process".
In Anaheim, C.J. Cron belted a two-run homer to cap the a five-run rally in the sixth inning, and Los Angeles trimmed its deficit in the AL wild-card race to two games.
Officially, 1-for-1 with four RBIs. "I really hope we have that problem", said Girardi.
In Cincinnati, Zack Cozart hit two of the hosts' four solo home runs, powering the last-place Reds to the victory.
In late July, Jacoby Ellsbury had become a $153 million bench player, his starts and game appearances curtailed due to the emergence of rookie Clint Frazier. It did not rattle Severino, and he wound up getting better and better as the game went on. Aaron Judge, with outrageous numbers against the Orioles this season - 11 homers, 24 RBIs and a 1.781 OPS in 16 previous games - struck out, but Gary Sanchez lined a single to left to put runners at the corners. They committed a pair of errors, including one by Chris Davis, who allowed a ball to trickle off his glove at first base in the second inning. He improved to 8-7 with a 3.00 ERA this season.
Severino again was tremendous, allowing two runs, three hits and a walk in eight innings.
Jeremy Hellickson makes his ninth start for Baltimore.
In San Francisco, Robbie Ray won his fifth straight start and A.J. Pollock hit a two-run double as Arizona beat the Giants.
Wood (15-3) allowed three hits and walked one.
Frazier was greeted by the thumbs-down from New York's entire dugout after his three-run homer that chased Wade Miley with one out in a six-run first inning.
The right-hander won for the eighth time in his last 11 starts.
