Jackie Bradley makes ridiculous catch to rob Aaron Judge of home run

Jackie Bradley makes ridiculous catch to rob Aaron Judge of home run

Aaron Judge beat out a seventh-inning dribbler in Sunday's doubleheader opener for an infield single, snapping an 0-for-12.

CC Sabathia allowed two hits over six innings in the opener, and Didi Gregorius hit a solo home run to give NY a 3-0 victory.

Jackie Bradley Jr. added another spectacular catch to his resume on Sunday night at Fenway Park, and it may be his best yet. Red Sox manager John Farrell said the team will follow through on its formal protest of Saturday's game, despite New York DH Matt Holiday's interfering slide back to first base in the 11th inning not having an impact on the final score.

Yesterday's doubleheader - and really, this entire four-game series to start the second half - exposed what was already known to be true.

When you make a catch that looks like it's something out of "Angels In the Outfield," you know you've made an insane grab.

"Highlight-reel catch against probably the most notarized power guy in the game, and timely".

"We had told him yesterday there was a good chance he was going start on Sunday", Joe Girardi said Sunday morning.




Masahiro Tanaka (7-9) took the loss after seven three-run innings, giving up seven hits and no walks while striking out nine.

With the win, the Red Sox moved three games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays and 3 1/2 ahead of the Yankees atop the American League East.

The Yankees didn't lose ground to the Red Sox but Judge wanted to pull closer.

"It's tough. It's a tough break, but nothing you can do about it", he said.

"I don't really have a ranking system", Bradley said. A lot of different things have got to go the right way. "Just hit it to the wrong guy and at the wrong part of the park".

Garrett Cooper, who made his major league debut for the Yankees on Friday, doubled in the fifth for his first major league hit.

While the Sox have not had a significant problem with runners in scoring position most of this season, wasted scoring opportunities have been a pinstriped boogeyman against NY.
