Aaron Judge Basically Saved the Yankees Season With This Home Run Robbery of Frankie Lindor

Incredible Plays

Last night, the New York Yankees staved off elimination by beating the Cleveland Indians by a tiny, final score of just 1-0. With the series now at 2-1 Cleveland, the Indians will have to try again at Yankee Stadium tonight at 6:00 PM.

Except, that game almost never was.

And that’s because with the game tied at 0-0 in the top of the sixth inning and a runner on first base last night, Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor lifted what would’ve been a go-ahead two-run home run out to right field. But the giant in right field, a.k.a. Aaron Judge, jumped up and robbed him of a homer, keeping the game tied (and possibly saving the game/season).

Take a look:

And just for fun, here’s another quick look:

Although he didn’t have to jump a ridiculous height Judge is 6’7″ already and timed that leap perfectly. Had that ball gone out, the Yankees would’ve likely ended their unexpectedly competitive season with a three and out against the reigning AL Champs.

Also, apropos of nothing, look at this bada**

I freakin’ love the postseason.
