The Yankees are as hot as any team in baseball, winners of 13 out of 15.
They've also been on an incredible home run pace, particularly against the Orioles. During this week's completed four-game sweep, the Yankees homered nine times, making it a whopping 61 homers against Orioles pitching this season in 19 games.
But while the Yankees have been on this power-fueled run, slugger Aaron Judge has surprisingly not been a huge part of the Bombers' offensive machine.
Dating back to July 20, Judge has hit just one home run in 109 plate appearances. He's hitting .220 during that stretch, and has driven in just seven runs while striking out 32 times.
Judge was asked about his slump following Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Orioles.
"It's just baseball. Sometimes the hits fall, sometimes they don't," Judge said.
"I hit a couple balls hard right at people and they're outs. Sometimes luck isn't going your way, you just keep grinding and go to the next game."
Meanwhile, his manager isn't overly concerned about Judge's slumping, saying that the right fielder's overall body of work still speaks for itself.
"The game is hard. He's not a good, he's a great player, one of the game's best," Aaron Boone said. "Really, it's just been a couple of weeks that he hasn't really been locked in, but you still look at the body of work.
"I still contend that it will be a matter of time before he gets it rolling and we hop on his back and he'll go through a stretch where he'll really carry us."
