Hendriks Gets Another Win on Sunday

Though technically only one win per the box score, Liam Hendriks is riding high after returning to the major leagues after beating cancer. On Sunday, the White Sox put him in the game tied 2-2, and his stuff was wicked as usual. He emphatically retired the side, and going into the bottom of the ninth, Andrew Benintendi got the rally started. Eventually, Jake Burger got to the plate and did not miss the opportunity to send fans home happy, smashing a grand slam and giving Hendriks the win.

What’s better? Hendriks notched the victory on National Cancer Survivor’s Day.

We all saw the magnificent catch Aaron Judge made on Saturday against the Dodgers. And if not, see below. Well, as it turns out, he injured his toe on the play and was out of the lineup on Sunday. Yankee manager Aaron Boone says an IL stint is possible. Judge has been on yet another historic campaign, posting numbers similar to his MVP season last year.
