Aaron Judge literally ran over the fence and made a great running catch.
With Max Muncy on first base and the Yankees holding on to a two-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, the judges slugged J.D. Martinez.
The Yankees defeated the Dodgers 6-3 on Saturday at Dodgers Stadium.
The rubber match will air on ESPN at 7 p.m. Sunday.
Interestingly, Muncy was awarded second base because the judge went off the field when he caught the ball.
But Michael King and the Yankees escaped the inning unscathed, thanks to Judge’s heroic performance.
The 6-foot-7, 282-pound Judge slammed into a wall just outside the Yankees’ bullpen and nearly fell through the fence. But he took only one step to stabilize his body with the ball safe in his gloves.
Trainor and Boone went to check on the Yankees star slugger, but he stayed in the game.
Prior to this, Judge hit a solo home run for the Yankees’ fifth.
He has 19 homers and 40 RBIs this season.
It was the second time Judges had a home run and a miracle catch in the same game during the Yankees’ trip.
Judge hit two homers in Tuesday’s 10-4 win over the Yankees against the Mariners.
Then, in the eighth inning, he stole a home run off Teoscar Hernandez, backed up to the wall, hopped, reached out, grabbed the highlight reel, and put an exclamation mark on the night.
