Things aren’t going too well for Aaron Judge and the Yankees right now.
They head into their game against the Blue Jays today having already lost their sixth consecutive series, and clearly the frustration has boiled over.
After Aaron Judge was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning by Blue Jays ace Alek Manoah, he barked towards the pitcher’s mound as Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole and other hopped out of the dugout the back up the MVP favorite.

Coming into the game today, the Yankees have lost nine of their last 11 games as the offense has fallen completely flat.
Prior to the matchup, Aaron Judge called on his teammates to play with some more energy down the stretch.
“Just gotta have a little better energy in the dugout and push each other a little bit,” Judge said Saturday after the Yankees lost to the Blue Jays 5-2 in The Bronx. “We’re just missing that a little bit right now. We gotta come out and bring it [Sunday].
“When we’re rolling, everyone’s in on every single at-bat and everybody’s pushing each other. We’re missing a little bit of that right now.”
Prior to the last four weeks, the Yankees potent offense and consistent starting rotation had been carrying them to a dominant record. But lately, it’s been a different story altogether.
“Some of the stuff I’m seeing is just individual at-bats instead of team at-bats,” Judge said after hitting a pair of infield singles in four at-bats.
“Once we turn that around, we’ll be right back where we need to be.”
If I’m a Yankees fan, I’m happy to see a little life out of Aaron Judge and his teammates today, even if Alek Manoah was likely not trying to bean the slugger.
