Gleyber Torres had also hit a home run toward the south field in the fourth inning. The captain of the Yankees, Aaron Judge, was happy with the overall performance.

“I thought we took some really great swings. We got a guy on and then Juan did his thing. He really started the fireworks. But it was a bunch of guys taking great swings.” said Judge in a post-game interview (as per MLB.com)

The Yankees have a very good batting average and are now at the top of the American League East Table.
