MLB ROUNDUP: Judge powers the Yankees over the Mariners with two home runs
The New York Yankees started their six-game West Coach road trip off right with a 10-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
Aaron Judge had a massive game for the Bronx Bombers - smacking two home runs on the night.
He started off with a two-run shot in the top of the third to plate himself and Gleyber Torres - taking a 3-1 lead in the process. Later, in the top of the sixth, Judge hit a solo shot to extend their lead to 9-4.
Jake Bauers also logged a contribution in the home run column with a 355 foot blast to right field.
Domingo German, fresh off a return from a 10-game suspension, fanned four batters and gave up seven hits and four earned runs in his victory over six-and-a-third innings. Seattle's Bryce Miller recorded the loss giving up eleven hits and eight earned runs.
Royals 7, Cardinals 0
Mike Mayers, Josh Staumont, Taylor Clarke and Amir Garrett combined to throw a two-hitter as visiting Kansas City blanked St. Louis.
The Royals used Staumont as the opener in a bullpen game. He set the Cardinals down in order in the first inning, then Mayers (1-0) came on to retire the next 18 batters to take a perfect game into the eighth inning. The Cardinals finally broke through against Mayers when Nolan Arenado and Willson Contreras hit singles to open the eighth.
