Aaron Judge had already done more than his part at the plate with two home runs, a double and a walk.
Robbing a home run with a majestic leaping catch at the wall took an MVP-caliber performance to another level.
Judge’s first homer was a line-drive, two-run shot off the left foul pole, in the fourth inning, to give the Yankees a early 3-1 lead which never was in doubt .
The slugger settled for a double off the wall in the fifth, but got enough to clear it the next time up.
And if Judge’s Home Runs weren’t enough he stole one in the field as well, as he robbed Teoscar Hernandez in the 8th inning .
That was plenty of support for Germán, who made his first start since May 16 at Toronto when he was ejected in the fourth inning of New York’s 6-3 victory.
German scattered seven hits, and allowed four runs over 6 1/3 innings and the bullpen shut it down the rest of the way .
A good way to start the West Coast game with a win on Memorial Day.
