Monday's MLB: Judge hits two more homers but Yankees lose third straight

Associated Press

New York — Ramón Urías hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth inning off Gerrit Cole and the Baltimore Orioles withstood Aaron Judge’s two home runs to beat the Yankees 6-4 on Monday night and send New York to its season-high third straight loss.

Earlier, Major League Baseball suspended Yankees slugger Josh Donaldson for one game and fined him an undisclosed amount after he made multiple references to Jackie Robinson while talking to White Sox star Tim Anderson on Saturday. Shortly before the penalty was announced, the Yankees put Donaldson on the COVID-19 injured list.

Yankees' Aaron Judge runs the bases after his first-inning home run against the Orioles on Monday in New York.

Urías started Baltimore’s four-run third with a double down the left field line, then snapped a 4-all tie by lining an 0-1 fastball to the short porch in right field off Cole (4-1). The Yankees starter allowed a season-worst five runs and seven hits in eight innings. He struck out 11 for his 49th career double-digit strikeout game.

Judge upped his major league-leading home run total to 17, and hit his 31st and 32nd career homers against Baltimore pitching when he connected in the first and fifth off Jordan Lyles (3-4).

L.A. Dodgers 10, (at) Washington 1: Tyler Anderson pitched eight shutout innings, Trea Turner had three RBIs in his first game against his former team and Los Angeles routed Washington.

Anderson retired his first 16 batters before César Hernández’s one-out double in the sixth.

Turner, who spent seven seasons with the Nationals before his trade to Los Angeles last July, extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a two-run single in the sixth. He also had an RBI groundout in his first at-bat.

The Dodgers have won eight of nine and own the best record in the National League at 28-13. Washington fell to 5-16 at Nationals Park, the worst home record in the majors.

Anderson (5-0) needed just 50 pitches to breeze through five innings. He allowed five hits, striking out eight while walking none.

Nationals rookie Joan Adon (1-8) dropped his sixth consecutive start and leads the majors in losses.

Chicago Cubs 7, (at) Cincinnati 4: Ian Happ and Patrick Wisdom hit three-run homers and Chicago beat Cincinnati despite two home runs by Aristides Aquino.

Happ drove in Seiya Suzuki with a fourth-inning double before Wisdom hit his team-leading 10th homer. With Chicago holding a 4-3 lead with two outs in the seventh, Happ drove the first pitch he saw from reliever Luis Cessa into the right-field bleachers.

(At) Pittsburgh 3, Colorado 1: Ke’Bryan Hayes had three hits and scored the tiebreaking run on Yoshi Tsutsugo’s infield single in the eighth inning as Pittsburgh edged Colorado.

Hayes singled to lead off the eighth against Tyler Kinley (1-1), stole second base and advanced to third on Daniel Vogelbach’s groundout. Tsutsugo then beat out a slow bouncer to second base, enabling Hayes to score.

David Bednar (1-0) escaped a first-and-second jam in the eighth to keep it tied at 1. He followed with a scoreless ninth.

Josh VanMeter added two hits for the Pirates, who had lost three straight games. Connor Joe had two hits for the Rockies, who have lost 10 of their last 11 road games and eight of their last 12 games against the Pirates.
